A couple weeks ago, I went to visit my sister in DC. She had asked me to come out to help her organize her apartment. Her and her boyfriend had combined households and were trying to finalize a few things. … Continue reading
I have been working on re-doing our guest room for a while now and it’s slowly coming together. I wanted to share a quick switch out that makes a big difference.
One wall had a picture hanging on it that my husband and I bought when we first got together.
I actually still love the picture, but I’m thinking of making it a part of a larger picture collage somewhere.
I have been searching for a cute mirror for a long time and finally found one on sale at Michaels.
I love all of the sunburst style mirrors out there right now. However, I don’t like how a lot of the actual mirrors are the size of a quarter and then they have a giant sunburst of metal or wood around a teensy tiny mirror. I really liked the one I found because it is a useable mirror and still has a great look. Here are a few great things about this switch out:
1) I was patient while I looked for the perfect mirror. I’ve literally been scouring the stores for months but I didn’t want to settle. I’m glad I waited and I even found it on sale!
2) We didn’t even have to make a new nail hole. We just hung it on the existing nail. I love time savers.
3) It brings some additional light and a feeling of a little more space into the smaller sized room.
4)It’s going to be the basis for my color palette for the rest of the wall decorations and frames I plan on eventually hanging. I just needed a little inspiration!
5) Recently my style has taken a slight turn towards the vintage and refurbished concept and I feel like this mirror fits that style well, even though it’s brand new.
I can’t wait to share more photos from this room!
