I was thinking back to when we first bought this chest in Seattle about two years ago, and this was the mirror I'd pictured getting to hang over it. I'd kept it in the back of my mind since then, but what with moving and having more urgent decorating needs, it kept getting pushed to the back burner. Finally the stars aligned and I got to order my mirror. I think it's the perfect crown jewel to our little bar area. It's from Wisteria.
For more context, this is the whole of our dining room - just a fat hallway on the way to the tiny kitchen. To the left is our entry. Despite having those interrogation track lights above (how I long to swap in a pendant!), this is the darkest part of our apartment. I love that now the mirror bounces some natural light from our living room window at the other side of the room.
And while I'm not currently partaking in our bar's obvious purpose, my nesting instincts are loving using the chest as a place to store my ever-growing napkin collection, and our small collection of barware. The shelves to the sides have been the perfect place to show off some of my favorite wedding china and thrifted serving pieces.
Loving feeling like this little nook is nearing completion.
