When is a mirror not a mirror

By
Home Stager with Stage-Show-Sell

It can be very expensive to have items that are only used for one thing.

Yes we do charge rent for our items when we stage but it takes a lot time to recuperate the expense and breakage.

Recently I purchased two mirrors to hang on a wall.  One was to hide an ugly circuit breaker box on the left side of a window.  The other was to balance the look and went on the other side of the window.    I took marker pens and wrote cute things i.e.   Call me when you get home, on one of them.  The other had a grocery list.

They were purcahsed at Target and we horrible to hang.  I think someone was drunk when they attached the hangers to the back.  I could not get them to hand straight without poster putty on the corners.

I thought I'd never be able to use them again.

 

This week, the dinamic duo, used one for a bed table.

Clever we are

As the saying goes.... "there's more than one way to skin a cat."  Perfect solution for that pesky hanging mirror.

Hey Virginia, now that was a very imaginative solution for your not so cooperative mirror.

Ah, you gave me a laugh! I don't think there's a single stager out there who hasn't made a bad purchase at some point in time. Great save!

I love that idea!  My sister is looking for a tray for her new living room and can't find one she likes.  I think a mirror would be a fabulous idea, thanks!!!
