I recently surfed across this picture; and although the blogger was discussing something totally different about the image, I stopped in my tracks on how the mirror was hung.
So, I starting thinking . . . this would work in so many different places where you want the artwork to have more impact.
Look at this divine example.
Hard to tell, but I think it's actually hanging from the frame of the mirror.
I love the layered look in this image on a wall of mirrors.
Hard to tell from this one, but I think the small starburst mirror is actually suspended from chain on all four sides.
I think the chain adds tons of interest to an otherwise basic artwork installation.
Another fabulous example of this idea - a mirror on a mirror.
Well, needless to say, I was smitten with the idea; and since it is such an inexpensive detail, I had to have my own!
Here's the Before . . . (sorry for the glare, you know I am not a photographer). This is a wall in my living room that has never really seemed "finished" to me. Sort of feels like you need a piece of furniture underneath the artwork.
And the After . . .
It was such an easy DIY project - took all of about 25 minutes. And now it feels like gallery artwork and the wall feels "finished."
This is all I have time for today. But promise, later this week, to post a tutorial on how to do this and where to find the materials to make it happen in your house! Have a great day. M.
