DECORATING WITH JEANIE -- MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL

Jeanie Sims, our decorating editor is here today with a decorating tip of the day. -- AP

Thanks, Anastasia! Here’s a tip that serves a dual purpose. Whether you’d like to make a room look larger or fill it with more natural light, add a large mirror. It’s like adding another window to a room.
And you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Find a mirror at a thrift shop, and paint the frame to coordinate with your room décor. Can’t find a mirror you like? Look for an interesting picture frame and buy a mirror to fit it. Stores that sell glass also sell mirrors that they’ll cut to size for you.

And there you have it -- another great decorating tip from Jeanie! Which one of our readers will give this one a try? Post a comment to be entered in the drawing for a free book from our Book Club Friday guest author. -- AP

Have just begun Scent to Her Grave, by India Ink. Mirror is a clue.
