I've been searching for something to hang in the corner of my living room for awhile. Everything seemed wrong...I tried a DIY painting, a small print, and even just stuck a tall plant there once, but it just didn't work. I came across this mirror awhile back:
I loved the simplicity and glitz of it, but I knew I needed two or three to take up the vertical space of the wall and these were $178, which equals well over $500, which equals no go. I looked at a couple of stores (just the usuals) for something simple, gold, and round, but came up empty handed. Then I saw these on clearance at Michaels for $1:
yes, that's uno smackeroo...
I grabbed three, along with three 7" craft mirrors ($2 a pop):
I hot glued those bad boys to the chargers.
Oh, and here's a little tip for ya..because I'm nice like that...pop can tabs+hot glue=free picture hangers:
And the final product:
Just so ya know, they are not dirty, it's just the texture/sheen on the chargers reflecting the light AND I apologize for the picture quality, but this corner is between two windows, which is not prime for picture taking...
They're perfect. Exactly what this weird corner needed..and only $3 a piece.
So there you go, a simple project...cheap and easy...ya know, like your mom...
Sorry, I need to spend more time with my lady friends...
Anyways, what do you guys think?
