Ok, enough about all the crap-tastic stuff that's been happening in our lives....let's get back to the teeny tiny bathroom in the basement, shall we?
The space is fairly dark, and on top of BEING small, it also FELT small. In an attempt to add some lightness to the space, I decided to hang a mirror above the toilet.
Maybe this will jog your memory....
All I had to do was remove the supports that attached it to the back of the dresser and screw in a couple of picture hanging thingies (I have no idea what their technical name is).
Then we just hung it on the wall. Of course, hanging it level was the hardest part of this whole project! We didn't use anchors since there were two hooks and the mirror wasn't too heavy (rebels!).
I know it's not really traditional to hang a dresser mirror on the wall, but I really like the shape of it and the colour that the teal brings to the space. The teal colour is Sweet Rhapsody by Behr.
I am sort of obsessed with seeing mirrors in mirrors. Reminds me of a fun house. Strange for a bathroom? Maybe....
I am still undecided on that dark broze mirror, but am leaning towards making it white. I did think about switching the mirrors out and putting this teal one above the sink, but it didn't fit between the sink and the vanity light.
I found a rug, a soap holder and a towel hook over the past few weeks, so this space is sort of starting to feel a little more finished. I also plan to attack some accessories with a can of spray paint over the next couple of days to fill that awkward space beside the toilet. If all goes well there will be more bathroom posts next week.
So tell me....would you hang a dresser mirror on the wall?
p.s. If you are looking for another project to do with a dresser mirror check out the one that I turned into a giant chalkboard.
p.p.s. I recently took the plunge and joined an ad network (other than Google). I am still playing around with a few formatting things, but you will notice a few new ads around here. I plan on writing a whole post on monetizing my blog, but since it might take me a while to write it, I wanted to be totally up front with you about the ads now. Yes, I do make a bit of money (like a Starbucks a month...) off of the ads. I hope that my content still prevails and that you don't find the ads too obtrusive. If you do please let me know as I am open to suggestions of how to make them less obtrusive!
