UncategorizedDeath of a Mirror January 16, 2012I haven’t posted this framed mirror yet because we were waiting to hang it. We came home from work one night planning to hang it up that evening and it had cracked. This mirror was huge – 3’x5′. The mouling that we made the frame out of is out of a hundred year old house in South Carolina. The cream chippy/weathered finish was perfect. We didn’t have to do anything to it at all. I’m so sad typing this – it really was the perfect mirror. I was really sad when we came home to this huge mirror all cracked. But, life goes on…it’s just a mirror. I’ve been looking for a replacement and today at a thrift store, I found this mirror for $10. It’s a good bit smaller than the other one. But I do like it and think it would look good hanging directly behind the chandelier to reflect it back. So that brings up a couple of questions… First of all, with it being so much smaller, what should I do on the rest of the wall? We were going to hang the other one horizontally, so it would’ve taken up most of the wall. But with this one, it has to be hung vertically with that trim at the top, so what should I do with the rest of the wall? I’ve been thinking about more of a gallery wall with this mirror as the center. I could do a mix of paintings, word art, etc. with it. Or, I could do all mirrors. Something like this one… I’ve always loved this image from Pinterest. What do you guys think? A mix of mirrors and frames around this new one? Any other ideas? I’ll be back with another question tomorrow. Can’t wait to hear y’all’s opinion!
