Fireplace Mirror


Before
 
I recently shared with you my change above my fireplace here. So now that I have recovered from that tiny change up, I was left with a big empty space above the mantle. I had twenty five people coming over for Father's Day, and I had to do something about that empty space problem! I want to share with you how I fixed the big empty space, so here it is...
After!




I went with a black & gold distressed arch designed mirror! When I first saw this mirror I knew it was made just for me. I especially love the nail heads that go around the border of the frame.
 
 
 I wanted something very different to inhabit the space above my mantle, because I have a large picture hanging to the left of my fireplace. I did not want two pictures that were the same size and shape to be hanging next to each other.
 
See how they fight for each other's attention?
 
 I wanted to draw the eye up to the arch styled design mirror! The distressing gives it some personality and character! 
 
 


On each side of my mirror I  added two lanterns that previously were on my table.

After!


I also added some magnolia leaves to give it that extra pop of color.

I just love this..


 My hubby is loving his new space and I am extremely happy with my new look!

  3. love that you get to have a mirror over your mantle. I am still perfecting the 'tv-over-the-fireplace' look...SO far I would much prefer art, but not too shabby...
    THanks for visiting Circus Berry!

  8. Love the magnolia leaves. They are a great foliage to decorate with. Are they real preserved ones or artificial?If they're artificial, where did you get them? I would love some to use to decorate at Christmas. We don't have magnolias here in Maine.

    1. I would love to be able to say they are real, however they are not :( I got these at Hobby Lobby. I am not sure if you have one in Maine.. You can check them out online. I love magnolia's and we have them all in my neighborhood I guess you take for granted that they are everywhere.. Let me know if you end up getting some!
