Click on above picture to view little surprise reflected in mirror.
I missed out on a mirror on ebay last week because I forgot to take into account that parts of Australia are on daylight savings time now but here in Queensland we are not. I sent the seller a message and they were more than happy to have me take it off their hands so I got it for the list price of $50.
Now that I have it I am not sure what to do with it!
It has a distinctly neoclassical feel which I used to be "into" and still like some of those elements but that "look" is a little austere for our humble abode. The mirror has an unusual snakeskin-like surface on the side facings of the frame and large gold "knobs" along the top. It's definitely not shabby, or hamptons, or french provincial, so I'm just not sure what "treatment" to give it.
Any ideas people???? Take a look and tell me your thoughts.
The mirror that is on the wall in the picture is another ebay find and doesn't "go" with much in my house but I really like it. I'm thinking of giving it a coat of paint. Either that, or sell it to make room for the new mirror...I'm running out of walls you see. My solution would be to buy a bigger house but thankfully I have a sensible, frugal husband and we will be mortage free sooner than we would if I had my way.
