Today I'm revisiting a topic I talked about back in January of 2011. Unfortunately, all my image links are broken from that old post! So I thought why not touch on the subject again...
In particular, Federal Convex Mirrors. Love them or hate them they are here to stay! I love how they can work perfectly in traditional rooms or paired in super modern spaces without much tweaking. They add an instant touch of eclectic, timeless Americana to any space!
I first fell in love with them when I saw this Lauren Liess' bedroom image a long,long time ago.... It's so unexpected and perfect.
I really have been wanting one ever since I posted back in 2012, and I recently found one at an antique store for $7! It is exactly like this one below:
Isn't is awesome? I just couldn't leave it behind for only $7! Granted, it's not the highest quality but I figured I could find the perfect spot for it and I love that it's a total conversation starter! I've even thought about maybe painting mine white like some of these below...but I do like how it adds a touch of metallic gold to the wall as is! Here are some of my inspiration photos:
So what do y'all think? Should I paint it and give it more of a modern look or should I leave it gold and work with it as is?
