Do you decorate with mirrors?Are they just hanging around?
I decided to look at some different ways
to use them in our decorating!
Aren't these Venetian Mirrored Wall Sconces
beautiful? I can just imagine the
Modern Day Mosaic Mirrored Wall Sconce
Try using mirrored tiles in place of a solid mirror.
Beveled Mirror Tiles
would make a great back splash or an interesting wall display.
Here's a polished metal subway tile
with a mirrored finish.
The sky's the limit with mosaics!
This mosaic appears
on the outside of the building at sidewalk level.

Ok, when I say mirrored ceilings,
I know you are going to groan....but just take a look:

If the ceiling doesn't work for you,
what about a beautiful ceiling medallion?
I thought this one was gorgeous!
Here's a great DIY project
to get the look for less!
If the ceiling just won't work for you,
think about mirrored light fixtures!
Yes, the disco ball still lives in this
modern day interpretation!
There are so many beautiful
mirrored fixtures available today!
Centerpieces and table scapes
are perfect opportunities to
use mirrors of all shapes and sizes!
Here is a great idea.
Use the mirrors on different levels.
This gorgeous antique would be a show stopper.

If you like the look
but the pocket book won't comply,
try a vintage mirrored perfume tray or two.
Line them with candles and flowers
down the center of the table!
a mirrored table top
would certainly do the job!
Isn't this gorgeous?
During the holidays you can always find
basic mirrored shapes at all the
home goods stores, but here's a great source
for all sizes of mirrored place mats!
If mirrored table scapes aren't your thing,
you may want to consider mirrored
candlesticks or tea light holders.
A Pair of Art Moderne Silverplate, Glass and Mirrored Table Lamps,
c. 1930, in the form of candlesticks, single candle cup above four glass columns
on molded mirrored plinth, height 17 in., width 4 3/4 in., depth 4 in. $800/1200
Formal, reproductions are readily available!
Not so formal?
These tea light holders are adorable!
Mirrored wall art is a great way to
add light and sparkle to any room.
This site offers everything
you can think of in mirrored form!
I found quite a few mirrored clocks in my research.
Below is a classic styled reproduction,
...and a modern clock with flair!
Just think about all those vintage mirrors
you pass up at the thrift stores,
wouldn't they make great clocks?
You can buy inexpensive clock kits just about anywhere!
Just make sure you use the proper type
of drill with the mirror center...
we don't want 7 years of bad luck!
This talented blogger
turned a clock INTO a mirror!
Mirrored furniture is a subject for another day!
Mirror, Mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all?
Bless those who read my blog today
and send them on their joyful way!
