I’ve been dealing with some yucky health problems lately (combo of my Graves’s Disease and Kidney Disease, YUCK) and so I have been bed ridden for a few days. It’s funny how things work in our favor sometimes by way of small miracles or blessings. As much as I hate being bedridden I’m so grateful that I felt the push to finish most of our Master Bedroom last week, as I am not stuck in it staring at the walls. Usually one of the things I hate most about being stuck in bed (aside from the pain) is that my mind wont stop running and I keep redecorating my room over and over again… the blessing this time is that I love my room and I can just look at how pretty it is instead of think about all the things I want to change. (am I the only “crazy” one who redecorate’s everything in her mind? I do it when we are in hotels, or at other people’s houses too…. it’s an illness I think.)
Right across from our bed is an open wall right over our dresser. It’s a big space and thankfully our huge, long dresser fit perfectly right between the “his and hers” closet doors. I knew right away that I wanted this particular wall to be a mirror wall. I saw a picture on Pinterest a few years ago of a mirror wall and I just fell in love with the idea. There has never been a spot for one in any house we have been in where I could really display a lot of mirrors. I had a little spot in our last house but it was a teeny tiny area.
This is the first one I saw and I loved it. I love the mixture of frames and mirrors but I really wanted it to be all mirrors.
I love the idea of them going up the stairs and I toyed around with doing that, but I know that with my 4 little kids and the things they do on the stairs, the mirrors would become a safety hazard.
This is super classy and I love the idea of all the mirrors layered. I have a good friend who did this is her bathroom and I hope to be able to so that one day but I really don’t have the space for it now, or the amazing wall design behind it.

I love how our wall came together. I used mirrors from several different places and it took a few months to collect them all.
I spray painted the big IKEA frame with Gold Spray paint and the smaller one with black paint and then sanded it down and did a lime wash of white with chalk paint. I got all of the mirrors on sale or used a coupon (aside from the IKEA ones). Man I love finding a great deal, especially when it’s exactly what I’m looking for. The big black one from Ross was on sale because the paint was chipped in a corner, I simply sanded the edges to give it a weathered look and I was good to go. I also spray painted the big white oval frame, it was a really ugly goldish brown when I bought it so I simply painted it white to match the space.
I wanted a balance of color in the space so I tried to do an even amount of each other to fill up the space.
I love looking at them on the wall and I love that I have plenty of mirrors to look in when I finish getting ready in the morning. I feel like they brighten up the space and make the room seem bigger. I really love the black, gold and white theme and have been wanting to use it for a long time, I am so excited to be transitioning our Master bedroom into that color scheme.

I love how easily paint can transform a piece simply by painting it. Find the piece that has the shape you want, take some paint and make it your own. That’s my favorite way to decorate.
I love how my kids like to “help me clean” the mirrors with wet wipes. Since the mirrors are right over my dresser, they like to climb up on it and clean for me. This picture is a lovely example of how they help me clean. Such sweet kids.
One last look!!! What a fun space and an easy change.
