guide to mirrors + weekly wrap up

earlier this week i uploaded a guide to wall mirrors i've been working on for a few days. ac and i are looking for a mirror for our bedroom and i found some pretty spectacular (and affordable!) mirrors out there. the slideshow is grouped into categories like frameless, sunburst, etched, decorative frames, wooden and much more. this was one of my favorite slideshows i've done in a while- something about seeing all these beautiful mirrors together makes me really happy. one day when i can afford a big fancy mirror i'm definitely snagging this one. in the meantime, we went with this one. click here to check out the full slideshow and here to check out the rest of the guides i've done so far (lighting, budget lighting, desks, bedding, beds, dining chairs and sofas). i hope you all have a great weekend- i'll see you next week for the last full week of blogging on the old site (before we move to the new site)! below are highlights from this week:

I love the look of all the frameless mirrors above the daybed. The room looks so relaxing.

! My friend's mom has a vintage version of the dutch elm faux-bois morror (14/21 on the slideshow). It was originally white but she painted it a Prussian blue and it looks amazing in her house. She has tons of mirrors but it was always my fave.

love the work you do for all of us finding and compiling these collections. Mirrors are sensational. You can find BIG cheap or small cheap mirrors at Ross or Marshalls and recreate the frames. Also you can purchase beveled mirrors of all sizes at hardware stores. I glued the 12 inch square ones in 3 panels of 6 mirrors right on the wall then framed out each set with trim from hardware store which I cut in a hand mitre saw, painted silver and distressed and glued right on wall butted against the mirrors. Looks very french!

I'm starting to like mirrors with bamboo frames. In fact, I've used it for my inspiration when I started working on my exotic bedroom. Dark bamboo colors need light, so mirrors were perfect!

I opened up the room by putting red silk roses in front of the mirrors. Much better than using pictures all the time.
