Someone commented that I had the mirror hung too high. I had to agree with them.
But I was trying to center it between the white bands of the quilt hanging above the couch along with the macrame wall hangings on either side of the quilt. I was afraid if I lowered it that might look a little off balance.
So I got my bead strand I made a few months ago to put at the top, distracting the eye from those two things.
Of course Ivy and Charlie had to be in the mix.
There was another reason I wanted to get back up there. The top of the mirror was hanging about an inch away so from the wall, while the bottom part was flush with the wall.
Of course this drove me as crazy as looking at the mirror being too high.
So I took jute and tied it around the top spoke of the rattan and looped it a few times, then secured it to the nail at the top. It’s still a bit away from the wall, but not much. So that satisfied me.
Someone I think asked how the mirror is actually attached to the wall.
There is a saw tooth hanger on the back behind the actual mirror. I looped it quite a few times up and down the hanger and then hung it on the nail at the top. The nail is secure.
I want you to know I take your comments to heart. I know I am fallible and sometimes someone else can see the problem from a different viewpoint. And many times I agree with you.
Here is the mirror on the wall before I lowered it and then after.
(Yes, I ended up in the photo with my camera. Oops.)
So do you think it looks better now? I think it is better balanced. And balance is one of the things you’re trying to achieve when situating art on the wall.
