Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

If you ever think that you’d like to put HUGE mirrors in your house, please reconsider. I guess these kinds of mirrors would be ok in an exercise room, but in the two rooms that they’re in in our house, they just look awful.

So, since Tony was home of Friday, we decided to take one down to see what the wall looked like behind it. At first Tony tried to just pry it off the wall, but once it cracked he thought better of it and duct taped the whole thing in case it shattered. (That way if it broke or shattered it would stay attached to the tape instead of falling all over the carpet.) It’s a good thing he taped it too, because I still found little shards of glass in the carpet!


After a good 45 minutes of work, he was finally able to get the mirror off of the wall. The brown circles are where the dollops of adhesive were, and for the most part, the wall is easily fixable.


Except for this one big hole on the bottom:


So, Tony came to the conclusion that it would be worth it to hire someone to come in and take the mirrors down and then fix the walls. I’ll be calling Mr.Handyman first thing tomorrow morning!
