This is one of the three mirrors I bought from Target, and the other two I have hanging vertically in my dining room. I liked it because I was initially going to try to get a venetian style mirror but that ended up being too expensive as well as a bit too gaudy. This was my simpler and cheaper alternative hehe.
I might swap it out for a larger one with an espresso wood frame... I also plan on getting a few more frames that are larger as well. Maybe a few more class candle holders that are even taller. Another trip to Hobby Lobby!!
All these sort of vintage feeling jeweled frames I bought at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. Even the little camouflaged clock I found there!
If I could somehow bring more light into the living room area without this lamp on the mantle I would also like to move this, but I would need to get a chandelier for this.
I have so many candles that I have all the rest of the matchboxes in a larger box on my bar, but this was perfect for the few I need to light my fireplace mantle candles.
I heart candles... and shiny things hehe.
I also printed out all my photos with low degrees of color saturation so that the color wasn't fighting with the actual frames. Since I do not have black and white in my living space, I didn't want to loose all color entirely though. They have more of the appearance of old faded photos but without as much sepia tone.Now I just need to continue my collection of photos throughout my home! :)
