new uses for a vintage frame


how to decorate with an empty frame

A few months ago my husband and I bought this gorgeous vintage mirror for our entryway. This thing was huge and weighed about 75 pounds. {Side note, we bought it from one of the vintage shops down the street and carried it home - I can only imagine how ridiculous we looked walking down the street carrying a gigantic mirror! :)} We finally went to mount it on the wall and after a 3 hour ordeal {trust me, it's harder to hang a crazy huge and heavy then you would ever think} we ended up breaking our precious mirror.

In reality we broke the frame but since the frame was broken we didn't trust that the heavy glass would stay put. I had been trying to get my husband to but empty vintage frames for months now but he never really understood the look. So imagine my surprise when my husband suggested we just use the frame and store the mirror part for a future project. {YES!}

We walked throughout the house, found about 5 different spots it could go {cue future stops to the vintage shop to get empty frames...}, decided on our bedroom and up it went! I had created a gallery wall with photos from our wedding, proposal and other fun photos of us so with a little bit of rearranging we used the large mirror frame to circle our gallery wall. We both agreed that we love the wall with the frame surrounding the mirrors than when we just had the photos up there.

So there you have it! If you have a husband who is leary about getting an empty frame or you yourself broke a really fantastic mirror, here are some options for you! Happy decorating!
