MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL...


Why is that bathroom as dark as a hall? Two brothers in Manhattan had a grim view of their tiny, dark powder room until a little fairy granted them a wish of transforming the space into the brightest room off all. If you, too, are staring into the same problem, here's a simple tip to turn a little problem into a big hit!
WHO'S THE CHEAPEST OF THEM ALL?
While there are many great deals out there I have found more hidden treasures at Ikea for far less than you'd think. In the dark space above, for example, purchasing RAM mirrors at Ikea for 7.99/each, painting them snow white and hanging them as panels in the powder room, opened the space up making it bright, light and the owners favorite room, to my delight!
TIME TO COMPLETE TASK: 3 Hours
COST: 6 RAM mirrors from Ikea: $48, Quart of Glidden snow white paint $9.99
STRESS LEVEL: Having the best design of them all...LOW
