Found a New Mirror, Now Which Lampshade?

I love mirrors they can be any kind and I love them! As long as they can be painted they are a sure hit! I’ve been looking for one for the entryway and the room off the kitchen, I took both of the ones I had there and had put them on the mantel a couple months ago then when we painted the fireplace I didn’t put them back so they have been moved around…a lot! The other day I went to Marshall’s and found this mirror!
I’m sure it’s made of wood and covered with fabric with the French writing on it, I thought it was pretty neat. I’m using two lampshades with this mirror to see which one I like best. Do you ever do that? Amazing how pictures show you what you want to know!
Leopard one?

Or the black? The black shade doesn’t fit on the iron lamp… to wobbly. This is how it looks as I type this. Both lamps were from GW the wooden one I painted!
I  also used this idea that I found around blogland to hang the mirror and it works great!
Let me know which lampshade you like the best? Okay?
As always thanks for stopping by, leave a comment so I know you have been by♥

Rondell, I love your new mirror! I love the script writing on it and its round shape.
I always take pictures too, when I can't decide how something looks. I don't know if I can pick a favorite...both lamps & shades look great!

That mirror is so cute...and I like the black lampshade the best. You're can see with a camera...what you miss with your eyeball...don't know why...but it's true!

I'd go with the black shade. Great tip for hanging mirrors (or anything) Thanks for posting! xo

Love the mirror!!
I like the wood lamp with the black shade the makes the lettering on the mirror frame really stand out.
It looks great!!

LOVE that mirror. It's a hard pick between the two lamps, though- I guess I would probably go with the solid black because of the patterned pieces on the hutch. I think they stand out more with the solid black.

The truth is you can't go wrong with either one- xo Diana

What a pretty new mirror that is Rondell. Great vignette and that shade is fabulous!

CAS said...

I absolutely agree with everyone, the black shade looks better. It anchors the table and makes the darker colors on the corner cabinet really pop. Love the mirror!

That mirror is awesome! I like the wood lamp with the black shade the best too :)

Kelly said...

Love your new mirror! That is such a cute frame. I think either lampshade will work fine, but I'm leaning towards the solid black one. Thanks for the tip on how to hang things with 2 hooks. I usually make a stencil to put on the wall, but that is time consuming. Your idea works better! I'm going to give that a try some time.

I like the contrast with the black shade. You are right about taking pictures of things to show how it really looks. I do that too!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

I really like the one with the black lampshade, but I don't think you could go wrong either way.
Great mirror!

Debbie said...

Both lamps look good, Rondell.
You could change them out every once in a while for fun.
Your room looks great!!

Cute mirror! I am with everyone else, I think the black shaded lamp looks best in this setting. That said, I do love your other lamp too! Both were great bargain finds you lucky lady!
