Simple replace to our hearth mirror

Modifying a built-in, outsized mirror could be as straightforward as including a wooden overlay. We minimize an arch out of wooden and secured it overtop of the present mirror to provide it extra architectural curiosity.

After 4 years of considering, rethinking, and overthinking…we lastly discovered a easy answer to change 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 will break into 1,000,000 items.

Right here is the mantel after we moved in. Our darkish and moody mantel makeover utilizing paint was a very good first step to make it stand out, but it surely wasn’t fairly as dramatic as I hoped it may very well be.

We’ve got nothing in opposition to mirrors – however this explicit 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 answer and it seems to be prefer it’s been a part of the home for years. We minimize a wooden arch utilizing a Jasper jig and positioned it overtop of the mirror to provide it a barely extra fashionable look.

Sluggish design is a good way to explain us. We aren’t speeding. Solely doing what feels proper and matches our dedication to traditional styling. And we HOPE this look has endurance for years to come back!
