Mirrors on the wall

I posted  yesterday how I recently updated my sister’s bathroom.   Now I am on to the finishing touches.

For the space behind the toilet I envisioned hanging 3 round mirrors.   I stopped at HomeGoods to see what they had and I got lucky and found just what I was looking for.   I took them over to my sister’s house, and even though my brother-n-law wasn’t there, we decided to go for it and hang the mirrors ourselves.  It turned out just like I had envisioned, I was very pleased with my choices. The light reflecting off the mirrors gives the little dark alcove area some life and adds depth to the wall without being too over done.

But there is a problem….something that I didn’t even think of!  Maybe because I have raised three girls.

Can you guess what it is?  It is the placement of the bottom mirror.  Yeah, I totally forgot about the men in the house, they stand in front of the toilet, unlike us girls who sit.  My brother-n-law has had a hay day coming up with jokes about using the bathroom.   You know how guys can be with that sort of stuff that relates to certain body parts, they think they are so funny!  And to top it off, my sister and has 16 year old son who has a lot of guy friends come over, and they use this bathroom, so she has been taking the mirror down when they are over.  We have had some good laughs over this, but I need to come up with a plan “b” for the bottom mirror.  Back to the drawing board to come up with a solution.

  1. This made me chuckle as a woman who has been surrounded by brothers, male cousins, and my hubs and sons. 🙂

  2. Ok, this is funny & I too would not have even thought of that with having 3 girls. I do like the look but what to do…hmmm. Good luck!

  3. LOL I would have never considered that either! hahahah That is funny. I like the look though!

  4. I thought of that before I even finished reading your post! Maybe its becuz I came from a home growing up with 4 brothers??!
    I think it would be funny to draw a mustache on the bottom mirror….or goofy glasses…..that way they get a major chuckle when they check themselves out! LMAO!

  5. Ok, on a serious note – maybe frost or use that new “looking glass” spray paint on the bottom and top mirror??

    Sorry…still cracking up over my previous comment!

    “Mirror mirror on the wall, who has the fairest_____of them all?”

    • You are cracking me up too! I love the mustache idea, and I KNOW my brother-n-law would as well. But I also like the real solution of spraying the mirrors with the “looking glass”, smart girl.

  6. You are right of course, but it was still pretty funny. Can’t wait to see what you do next.
