Winter blahs are hitting us fast and hard. It’s all those cold, grey skies and early sunsets. Do you have to get out of bed in the dark like I do? The late sunrises are maybe the hardest part of winter! So, clearly we need more light in our lives.
Let’s bring that crisp winter light into our homes with some extra reflective surfaces. They always say a mirror will brighten up a room, and I totally believe it this time of year. Take your pick between these fun mirror projects – then bask in the extra bit of radiance it brings to your favorite spaces!

There isn’t a tutorial for this one – it’s that simple. Just grab an old car mirror and set it on your nightstand. Ok, so finding the mirror might take a little effort – but I’m betting it’s worth it.
