Let’s reflect on that
At the top of our stairs, we have this big expanse of wall that crying out for something to be put there.
Any large piece of art work would be uber-expensive to fit this space.Â So we came up with a cheaper, alternative. A DIY mirror.
We got a large 3ft xÂ 7ft mirror for free off Craigslist – it was one of those builders-basic frameless mirrors that go above the vanity. All it took was a little mirror adhesive and some painted trim around the edges, and voila! A custom, large scale mirror that costs about 20 bucks.
It does wonders for reflecting the light around the foyer during the daytime, not to mention the pretty chandelier crystals at night.Â Gotta love inexpensive solutions to design problems.Â What inexpensive ways for art work have you utilized in your home?
Pssst. Did you notice those DVD storage cabinets to the side of the stairs? I’ll be posting about those on Friday.Â Stay tuned….
