Give me your vote...

After painting the bed a few weeks ago, the bedroom has jumped to the top of the "to do" list. I am not ready to show you the entire room, there is still a lot to finish. What I need help with tonight is whether to re-hang the mirror above the dresser or to hang pictures above the dresser. It is a point of disagreement here. Not going to tell you who likes the mirror and who would like to see it go!

What are your thoughts.....

No mirror
(dresser still needs new hardware)

Here is the mirror painted.

And in case you missed the before picture....

Oh dear, what an awful before picture.

What would you do....
re-hang the mirror above the dresser?
or
hang pictures above the dresser?
or
maybe you have an idea we didn't think of?

Oh no, it is too much pressure being the first one to comment on this post! LOL! Ummm...I kinda like the pictures over the dresser only because of the contrast of the lighter paint of the dresser with the darker frames above it. Do you have somewhere else in the room you can hang the mirror because it really is beautiful painted white. I really think anything will be beautiful!

I usually like to be different, and I would normally be that way....however in this case I am going to say the mirror over the dresser. I think you would miss not having it.

I'd keep the mirror. And put some beautiful lamps on either side of it on the dresser. I'm sure you can find another spot for those prints in the room. I'd paint the frames white though.

I like the look of the mirror over the dresser better..

Hmmmm.....well I would hang that mirror over there propped up against the wall over the dresser if it will fit. LOL

What about the mirror in your 'before' photo the one on the floor? it is painted black, like the picture frames...AND! it looks pretty. How about a combination of that framed mirror with your pictures? Make everybody happy!

Wendy said...

Yes, the long mirror is hanging in the room on the a wall in front of the closet. The frame of that mirror is stained a dark walnut, which does almost look black. Good eye :)

I vote for the mirror over the dresser.

Adam and Wendy said...

Hmm...I'm not trying to copy everyone else, but I think I like the mirror! I like the pictures too...they would be pretty hanging on either side of the mirror if there is room (which might only work if your mirror were smaller I think). Can't wait to see what you decide! :)

Paula said...

I vote for the mirror.

corners of my life said...

Since you have another mirror close at hand I vote for the pictures. They are so pretty.

Hi Wendy!
I like the pictures above the dresser better, or lean the dark mirror that's on the floor on top of the dresser, or hang the mirror that's on the floor on same wall it's leaning now.
Put the dresser mirror in the foyer (someplace that may need light reflection), or in a bathroom above a sink or tub that needs a little character. Or paint the mirror chalkboard and hang in the dining room or laundry/mud room?
Love, me
P.S. If I lived nearby, I'd be right over to help! It looks like fun!

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

OR, scoot the dresser to the left a little, hang the dark antique (gorgeous) mirror to the right of the dresser, lowish, but still tall enough that Tony can see himself while standing, in it, and hang the pictures above the dresser.

Michelle @ between cottage and cabin said...

I spy another mirror in the before picture. Can you use that on another wall and use the pictures above the dresser? Can't wait to see what you pick.

MELANIE said...

Im always an out-of-the-box thinker. lol I say No Mirror..to matchy! lol Either go with the pictures and some lamps and a nice tray (which I know you have a great collection). If you really want a mirror in the bedroom then try a different style mirror. Like a rubbed bronze or nickel what ever would flow into the room without being an eyesore. What about using the one leaning against the wall over the dresser and the 2 pictures vertically to the side of the dresser with a chair. Cant wait to see what you decide. xoxox How much snow did you get up there? We got 2 feet...ugh!

Jess said...

I'm always a fan of the mirror! I feel like they make the spaces bigger.

All That Glitters said...

I'm team pictures!!! haha!

Beth @ Dirty Laundry said...

I think the pictures look very pretty, and I think I like it better, but I think you would miss the mirror. I tried moving the mantle clock off of the mantle, and Dave hated it and said he kept looking at the wrong place for the time, and I said, "Dude! It looks so much cuter now with this picture here. You'll get used to it!" But then I found a week later that it was driving me crazy and I couldn't get used to having the clock in the new location. I had ot move it back. I hate it when he's right.

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

I'd vote for the artwork. Less expected.

turtlemss said...

Go for Art work, but not those.
the frames are too heavy/dark. Or
a different mirror that the one that goes on the dresser. We took our mirror off our dresser, and hung a flat screen TV. Not sure it was an improvement! But the hubby is happy
with this arrangement. I have a full length mirror available elsewhere in the MBR, so it
s all good.

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

The frames aren't too heavy or dark, depending on the knobs you put on the dresser, do ORB or something iron for knobs. I love the art.

Mary said...

Wendy I vote for the pictures or antique mirror with pictures beside it.

the cape on the corner said...

i like the mirror, but not that one. i'm seeing a scrolly one, or something more ornate, and round or oval. can't wait to see what you choose!

Emily {Frilly Details} said...

I'm leaning more toward the mirror. You can always hang the pictures on another wall. I'm sure whatever you decide will look great. :)

Southern Queen Bee said...

I like the mirror..I agree with the other comments...you will miss it.
I had a mirror in a hall leading out to the back door. Well, I moved it and hung a picture and to this day still will catch myself looking to the wall to see if I am ready to walk out the door! LOL.

dee dee said...

Oh Wendy, I think you can go either way with this and still be good! I once was helping a friend decorate and was offer $100 from a husband to sway an opinion his way, I of course declined and since laugh when asked to help make a choice when the two living there have opposite thoughts on the matter! I love the color!

Rene said...

I have been considering making the same change Wendy, but I think keeping the mirror over the dresser is the way to go. It really looks great painted. Could you use the pictures over beside the closet?
