I love the shape of this mirror! How often do you get to see a mirror that is not plain old rectangle?
I have to admit, that when I picked up this mirror at a reclaim store I almost missed it. I actually didn’t see it at all. The friend I was with pointed it out and when I saw its large size and gorgeous shape I just couldn’t pass it up. Do you see those crazy detailed corners? They are so lovely and pretty. Annnd… they come off! I was super excited when I realized that.
Unfortunately I didn’t remember to take a picture of the mirror until I had already removed 2 of them…To make the details of those corners really pop and make the piece more modern looking, it only took a little bit of paint and 3 quick steps. Start by painting them black, or any dark colour.

The light colour will highlight the high points and reflect the light.

With the combination of a dark undertone, a metallic silver to reflect the light and light touches to finish it off, it is so easy to make details pop. By making those details pop, it completely turned this mirror into a modern piece that would look amazing in any room.
