Mirror Mirror On The Wall from Dans Le Lakehouse

Poem Stenciled Onto "Antiqued Mirror"

Dans Le Lakehouse

When a bathroom renovation left me with a good sized mirror I couldn’t give away, I decided to upcycle it into the perfect, light reflecting piece of wall “art” for above my mantle. I gave it a faux antique finish to disguise its bathroom-ness, built a simple frame, and then stenciled on my favorite Hungarian poem by a famous Hungarian poet. It was perfect in the living room of my former townhouse!
