LITTLE BLACK DRESS
It started six weeks ago when I had the initial "epiphany". There are two main epiphanies I'm going to talk about. First was painting the cabinets in our master bath black. Emil did his research and found he could handle the project. The first requirement!
The cabinets are wood and were finished in a light color, and looked ordinary. Not bad,--but not great. I thought the look of the bath would be totally improved if they were black.
To improve the overall look of the vanity area I also wanted to dress up the "Builder Look". We had a mirror (in the warehouse) that we hung "over" the builder's mirror. The mirror is your typical mirror that is installed over the vanity and goes from the top of the vanity to the ceiling. The result upped the drama to another level. We have done this effect before.
We use fishing line to hang the "second" mirror.
I love the idea of a MIRROR OVER A MIRROR. I've done it over and over in different homes in different situations. All you need are two mirrors. How simple! A large and a smaller one. In order for it to work, the smaller mirror should be framed. Depending on the location and size of the larger mirror, it could also have a frame.
When the project was finished both of us were blown away with the dramatic results.
Now you don't think the story stops here do you? You should know me by now…...
My mind was running so fast I couldn't stand it! You guessed it-----------------
