Current Crush: The Mirrored Box

For the Current Crush event hosted by Danielle at Framed Frosting, co-hosted this week by Carly at Lipgloss and Crayons, I am sharing my Current Crush: The Mirrored Box.

Everyone has issues with storage. The worst is even if you have everything neatly tucked away, there are still boxes which scream out storage. A fabulous design trend is the Mirrored Box. This a stylish way to modernize a space as well as reflect its surroundings (which are likely other fabulous design pieces). I have some similar to these as jewelry boxes for stud earrings and things that aren't so easy to hang or display. A perfect holder for anything from business cards to buttons. Whatever it is, it will be disguised as fabulous!



This design trend has been around for a while but if you haven't picked one up yet, better yet, you can make your own mirrored pieces! Karen of The Art of Doing Stuff shows an easy step-by-step for how to make your own mirrored plant box...with supplies from the Dollar Store. Simple and stylish.



The list of possibilities is endless.




If you're looking to add more green space to your home, this grass mirror design by Nokki is ultra modern in material (mirror/aluminum) and form, however it contrasts so beautifully with the different grasses sprouting within.




Could you see something like this holding herbs in your kitchen?

Do you have any old mirrors that can be transformed into something new?

I know what you mean. Plus, there'd be a lot of cleaning involved but I think it would be worth it. Thanks so much for following along! I can't believe how much fun I'm having but there is a lot of learning involved.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find one for yourself. I have a few with floral prints and I've seen ones with zebra print! :)
