So I have been struggling with an idea for my dining
room for over a year now I think... I just could not decide what it was that I wanted to do. I have this weird window that makes the wall kind of hard to decorate. I have debated over vintage doors, vintage mirrors, starburst mirrors all kinds of art and I just could not commit to any one thing. So it finally has come to an end- I needed to fix it and then things just seem to fall into line. It's always so nice when that happens. I found this picture on Pinterest the other day and fell deeply in love!
I painted the walls in there Restoration Hardware Slate which I LOVE but the mirror I picked was just not doing it for me. So I think I am going to give the vintage mirror/frame collage idea a go. I originally had a reclaimed wood mirror collage. So the clincher was when I received an email from a reader who owns a company that makes beautiful antiqued mirrors
(which I have been searching for someone for a long time). Leftbank Collection
makes all types of antiqued mirrors which is perfection for this little project of mine as I can vary the style of the mirrors so they look collected over time and I can fit them to some vintage frames too.
I have always wanted to do this somewhere.. now I just have to find the right spot!
I love love the plain jane mirror here... so me! I will definitely need to use one of these.
I am so excited!!! I am going to see what I can find at the flea market over the next few months and fill in from there.
