Convex Mirrors




Another brilliant Ms Debbie Travis concoction... a green and elegant design. She did it again! But, my favorite part is the series of convex mirrors above the mantel. They are actually rearview mirrors from delivery trucks!!! Good ole Deb, she makes it look so easy! Well it is kinda....

Basically, just use wood frames cut out to a certain diameter to match the size of the mirror. My friend used an old circular frame that happened to fit a mirror perfectly. She just hinged it into place...

Wow! Go ahead.. make your way down to your local auto parts store and go loco!


Make it unique.. paint it, stain it.. have fun! Some inspiring ideas from blackbirdmirrors (top), and Restoration Hardware (bottom)...

I'm sulking a little - I thought I was doing something original here in NYC. Darn!

They do look nice, though.
