Pretty Pair

Gallery Wall

The more, the cuter! Mirrors in this hodgepodge of flea market finds — 18 total, collected over time — were spray-painted white and hung in a random pattern. For extra quirk, one mirror hangs a lot lower than the others and another was kept its original teal color.

Layered Mirrors

Overlapping older mirrors in an entry have look-twice appeal, while a wood bench accentuates their charm. Hung from wires on the back, each mirror can be easily maneuvered and adjusted to stay level.

Bubble Pop

This section of an airy loft needed presence. To the rescue: vintage convex mirrors, ranging from 6 to 18 inches in diameter, scored at a flea market (for a similar look, try Ballard Designs). With all-black frames, they’re fun and glam.
