The Bland-But-Big Mirror
A massive mirror can make a room look larger (provided it's not reflecting a cluttered wall
), but the most affordable styles tend to have thin, boring frames. Try hot-gluing pieces of driftwood to the edges (a look inspired by one of Spencer's flea-market finds, above), spray-painting the frame in the room's accent color for a notice-me change of pace or covering it with molding.
But Go Ahead and Toss:
Flimsy, over-the-door mirrors that cost more to fix up than they would to replace.
