Mrs. Fixit: Mirrors

Sure mirrors can help you with your hair and make-up, but did you know they can help brighten and decorate your home too? I'll show you.

If you're having a dinner party, use a long mirror as a runner on a table top, add candles, flowers, and whatever you'd like and then turn on the lights.

The mirror will reflect the overhead lights and the candle light adding sparkle to the whole room.

Mirrors are an inexpensive subsitite for art. A large mirror costs a fraction of what you'd pay for a large painting or picture and it fills the space and adds depth to a room.

Along those same lines you can group several smaller mirrors together to create a really interesting display.

You can also use mirrors to help make home repairs, a hand mirror and a flashlight will let you see problems in hard to see spaces so you know what you need to fix and how you're going to get there.

Don't have a hand mirror? Try a make-up compact. Its "compact" size will reach right where you need it!

That's it for now, I'll let you reflect on these ideas for mirrors. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple.
