Living Room Progress - Let the Sun Shine! (Sunburst Mirror and Dresser)

As I mentioned in a post last week, the sunburst mirror I bought ended up behind the sofa. 

I also mentioned the dresser was planned for our bedroom.  And it may eventually end up there one day, but for now it's right where I set it up to paint: behind the sofa.

Here's a "before" pic I found on my phone:

And in our little casa now:

After - sunburst mirror in our living room

Another a "Happy Friday" pic of these tulips Seth bought (Seth's anniversary gift was getting flowers once a week.  Score!):

The bird was a $.99 thrift store purchase that I painted white.  There's a little chip on the wing (cue Martina McBride's "Broken Wing"!) but it doesn't bother me because you never see it.

Oh, and I finally got around to reading the latest issue of Lonny this weekend.  What a surprise that after posting about sunbursts behind the sofa and "our" mirror in House Beautiful a very similar one was also shown in interior designer Dan Patford's home.

Pretty close resemblance, right? 

Well, whattaya' think?  Should I keep it behind the sofa or try something larger?

I know a shot of the room may help to get a better idea.  First I need to let you in on my sofa find.  And I know, the chandelier reveal is well overdue.  Next week!


  1. The dresser looks awesome! I love the bright white!

  2. That sunburst looks gorgeous with the white dresser. I think you'll need a bigger sunburst if you want to place it behind the sofa. Otherwise, keep the sunburst in the living room.

  3. If you want to create balance and harmony in your office, you can use mirrors. Make sure though that you use a round mirror in a gold leaf frame to make it work very well in the feng shui money area of office.

  4. Glass and even mirror are now being used in kitchens and bathrooms. If you have a tiny kitchen, you can add a piece of mirror above your countertops to make the kitchen appear much larger. You just have to avoid mirrors in busy areas.

  6. A very interesting detail of the interior, such things will help make your room more attractive, the main thing is to add something like that. My wife is esthete in this regard, she changes the interior in the house, every year at the same time I use a minimum of financial investments. For a long time we use their services, they make attractive price offers, which are difficult to refuse.
