Easy Bedroom Updates: Art and Mirror

I finally got around to hanging something in my bedroom. Sure, it’s been two years since I moved into my apartment, but better late than never right?!?

This room has always been a challenge. It’s long and very narrow, and there isn’t enough storage. The area behind the door has served as a dumping ground for all sorts of things (winter accessories, yoga mats, craft supplies, socks, etc.) that don’t have a permanent home.

I’m planning a major purge, but in the meantime, I decided to make some easy bedroom updates!

I started by clearing out that messy corner. The door actually opens all the way now, which makes me (and my husband!) very happy.

Then I hung up my favorite mirror. This mirror was a total thrift score back when I lived in San Francisco, so I was happy to finally find a home for it.

I’m not sure where the mirror originated from. It reminds me of Mexican punched tin though, something I’ve always loved.

It’s moved around in the apartment quite a bit. Originally, I hung the painting over the fireplace, and next I moved it over the couch.

My husband’s office moved recently, and he brought home a large painting they were getting rid of. The only place it fit was over our sofa, so this painting ended up homeless. I’m so happy to have found a space for it again!
