A Tree for Silver & Gold

My hubby got me the most beautiful jewelry tree for Christmas this year and it’s helped spruce up one more empty area in our bedroom plus gives me a place to display pretty necklaces and bracelets. What gal doesn’t love that?

I don’t really care for huge bureau mirrors myself but I do like to take a quick peak when I put my earrings on in the morning. One problem with this wall and my preference to keep away from a big bureau mirror is, well….my height. I’m a little on the “wee” size at just about 5′-0″. (You are correct in assuming that “just about” means I miss the mark).

For the past year I’ve had the black shaped mirror resting on the bureau (from a Joss and Main sale) and I could see myself just fine! However, hanging a solo mirror at that low height was definitely not going to look right. I picked up two small square mirrors at target on clearance for $6 and painted them both with gold paint to compliment the black mirror we had. After a little arranging I was able to hang the lower mirror at my height while putting the black mirror up at Jake’s height and then balancing them out with the second smaller square mirror.

I like the mix of materials between the silver and gold that we have going on in this corner and think it adds to the character of spaces.  I still have plans to build or buy a proper full length mirror for a small wall between this area and the closet so am happy this isn’t creating a giant expansive wall of mirror that would compete with that.

I still get a spot to put on my earrings and this little jewelry tree is just so pretty! What a precious hubby I have!

Jewelry Tree is from West Elm and is still available here
