Oversized Mirrors


Lately I have developed a love for over sized mirrors as a statement piece!

As you can see, they are at home in any room of the house & look fabulous in any style.
An over sized mirror can make a room appear larger, help bounce light around a dark area in the home, or reflect a beautiful view.

Do you have one in your home & what purpose does it serve, perhaps its just a striking statement piece, mirrors are a fabulous replacement for art!!!

We now share a love of clocks AND oversized mirrors Trish! I passed one up on ebay last night. It was 2 metres tall and sold for $70!! I need to sell a few projects and get a bit more cash in the coffers so I don't miss out again.
Gorgeous post, love it.

I love the oversized mirrors but I haven't been able to convince hubby yet they we should have one:(. You can buy some reasonably priced large mirrors from Ikea- got to love a bargain:).
