In my farmhouse, the farmhouse horizontal mirror is an essential item. My husband installed them years ago along one of the walls. I never thought much about them until I recently found a unique and interesting antique at an estate sale. I now have a gorgeous antique hung on the wall above our table centerpiece.
Antique lovers are experts when it comes to finding the right farmhouse accessories. When I searched online for “farmhouse mirror” I was delighted by the variety of styles and colors available. The styles range from whimsical to rustic to elegant, and everything in between. With my rustic home design, I knew I wanted something that reflected nature, so I chose an antique wooden frame with a wooden shade in the middle.
I love antiques and this particular mirror was no exception. At first I was confused because this particular style of mirror had no lettering. After reading several website posts about antiques and their mirrors, I realized that this mirror probably came from a farmhouse in the 1800s. The style and rustic charm of this piece make it perfect for any rustic home decor theme.
When I found this unique antique at an estate sale, I immediately knew that I had found the perfect item to add to my rustic home decor. It truly is one of a kind, with the original ornamental iron chain attached to the top and side of the frame. The chain adds an old-time charm to the mirror. Each side of the mirror has four antiques roses on it and on each side of the frame is engraved with the word “HOORAY”.
These particular rose-covered mirrors make beautiful gifts for any female in your life. If you have a masculine home, you can use these mirrors with a masculine design to add to your rustic home decor theme. Just imagine the surprise on the face of your wife when you present her with this unique antique! If you have a more modernistic home with clean lines, then this mirror would also look wonderful with your contemporary decorating style.
In addition to using this mirror to enhance the interior of your room, you could use this as a focal point in your entry hall. If your entry is to the front of your home, you could display this antique in front of your door. You could also use this as the focal point in your living room. Now this is another way that you can use the unique frame of your antiques market mirror.
To display this mirror on your wall is a simple process. You will want to first locate the frame on your wall. Once you have located the frame you will then need to decide whether or not you would like to mount the frame in your wall. If you are interested in adding this mirror to an entry hall, then mounting the frame may be a good idea for you as the mirror will be the focal point of the entry hall and would add charm and style to the room.
In summary, displaying an antique mirror in your home is an easy way to add charm and style. By utilizing your knowledge about antique mirrors you can purchase an antique farmhouse horizontal mirror at a great price. Remember that if you are not knowledgeable about these mirrors, then it may be best to go to your local antiques market to purchase this piece. This will allow you to purchase this item in your budget and ensure that you do not end up spending more money than you expected.
