Good Questions: Terrific Fix or Tacky No No?

Hello AT,

I have been looking for a way to hide the hideous tile-over of my fire place (pinkish-white, uneven tile squares) and haven't had much luck. I rent and have a land lady who is averse to paint, or other such fixes. I recently bought a mirror for my dining area that didn't really fit with the space. I happened to lean it against the fireplace while scoping out potential hang spots in the living room, and am considering leaving it (or a bigger one) there...

There is a already a smaller mirror above the mantel that is built in, and I am afraid of mirror overkill. And I don't want the fireplace to look tacky (though you can't get much worse than the blushing tile) or cluttered.

The mirror shown in the picture doesn't cover the whole tile job. If the concept gets a thumbs up, should I buy one that covers all of the tile, or keep the one I currently have, which sort of creates the appearance of a natural opening but accentuates the crookedness of the tile?

Thanks for your help! Jen

Dear Jen,

We love the mirror, and that one looks good. If you can get one that covers it perfectly, go for it.

Anyone else????
