Simple replace to our hearth mirror

Modifying a built-in, outsized mirror might be as simple as including a wooden overlay. We reduce an arch out of wooden and secured it overtop of the prevailing mirror to present it extra architectural curiosity.

After 4 years of considering, rethinking, and overthinking…we lastly discovered a easy resolution to switch the outsized mirror over our mantel. The massive mirror had us caught for a very long time.

Even contractors didn’t actually wish to assist us take away it for worry it might break into one million items.

Right here is the mantel after we moved in. Our darkish and moody mantel makeover utilizing paint was first step to make it stand out, however it wasn’t fairly as dramatic as I hoped it could possibly be.

Now we have nothing towards mirrors – however this specific mirror is a large point of interest within the room and it felt barely dated. It additionally supplied an ideal view of the messy chaos upstairs on the touchdown (the touchdown is one other work in progress). I take pleasure in altering the mantel with the seasons, however its massive presence restricted my choices (apart from utilizing a suction cup to connect a wreath).

Lastly a easy resolution and it seems to be prefer it’s been a part of the home for years. We reduce a wooden arch utilizing a Jasper jig and positioned it overtop of the mirror to present it a barely extra trendy look.

Gradual design is an effective way to explain us. We aren’t speeding. Solely doing what feels proper and suits our dedication to basic styling. And we HOPE this look has endurance for years to come back!
