I don’t know why, but I think one of the best arrangements of art on a wall is a medley of mirrors. In my humble opinion, they don’t have to match. Pair a contemporary mirror with an antique mirror. Tuck a rustic mirror next to a gilded mirror. Color doesn’t matter either … white, blue, bronze, black. Whatever your heart desires. I think an eclectic mix provides greater eye candy.
It fit perfectly above my shabby white shutter in the family room.
My neighbor put this shutter in her garbage, but I rescued it before the garbage truck came by.
She’s picked stuff out of my garbage pile too. It’s a beautiful relationship.
These two mirrors are in my dining room (still working on this wall).
Both of these mirrors are also from Carter’s Cottage, which happens to be my source for ASCP.
Sounds like a drug, doesn’t it … the ASCP dealer. I suppose it is addicting in its own way.
Hubby thought I was nuts for buying this “broken” mirror. I told him that’s what I love about it.
The color is great too … I don’t have a lot of green but I like unexpected pops of color.
I’m thinkin’ this mirror wears Old White. I can’t remember the price of the green and white mirrors.
But I’m pretty sure they were both under $25. The white one might have been under $10.
This pink mirror is also on the same wall in the dining room. Isn’t she lovely?
I love the little detail at the top. So romantic. This is one of my favorites.
I love this beauty, also in the dining room but a different wall.
Found this gilded girl for just $10, in a resale store across the street from Carter’s.
The store has a 2nd floor room, up a gloomy, musty stairwell. Nothin’ fancy, but some great treasures.
Haven’t decided if I’m going to paint this one. What do you think? Paint, or leave as is?
A simple oval mirror, also from the 2nd floor resale shop. I paid $15 for this one.
Let’s go back into the family room.
This little blue mirror is about 6″ square and another find from Carter’s Cottage.
I’m thinkin’ it wears Louis Blue ASCP with dark wax.
Pretty sure this metal mirror with the French crown is new. The mirror is the small circle in the center.
Guess what I paid for this one? It’s about 7″ in diameter.
They also have a booth at the Kane County Flea Market each month.
I posted more photos of my mirrors here
There’s another mirror sitting atop my craft cabinet in the family room.
Trixie likes to jump up there and admire herself. The toile hat boxes are also from La Maison Marche.
This isn’t a mirror but I wanted to take a picture of it hanging in the family room.
It’s some type of lantern with a place for a candle inside. I don’t know much about it.
I found it at the flea market for $6. I loved the color and brought it home.
