I am trying to put the finishing touches on my
Coastal bedroom. I have 2 matching mirrors I would like to use over each nite table- but- the tables dont match.. They are the same height and similar style but one is a small chest and the other is a table.. Would the mirrors still work?
Hi my dear friend. I think they would totally work, but can you post a pic?
actually I havent hung them yet as they are very heavy and would require one of those Large Screws lol.. I am trying to avoid making holes since I cleaned patched sanded and painted the room..
therefore I have no photos.. I tried standing it up there but unless I am holding it with both hands it will fall- so again- thats why no pics..
thank you for responding . I do appreciate it
I think it will work. I would make sure to hang both of the mirrors at the same height and the same distance from the headboard, regardless of the differences in the nightstands. I would follow up with a matched pair of lamps, and mis-matched accessories.
thank you Charles. I will keep height and placement in mind..
I have mismatched accessories and matching lamps, as you suggested..
Hopefully I can finish it some time this weekend and post photos.
Definitely post pictures when you've got them hung
yes Wendy I sure will.
I've already run into a problem though..
Charles said- same height and distance from the headboard... I can get them the same height but the bed is off center of the wall , so left mirror would be much further away than the right..
hmmm.. now what?
Right on, I agree!
Can't wait to see your pictures!
I plan on doing the same thing, mirrors same, but my nightstand/dressers will be the same. I am not a symmetrical 'have to have' type person, but in this case I will use that similar sides look in my Master bedroom.

I had to go swipe the matching side table from another room and I just got the primer coat of paint on it.. Then It'll take at least 2 coats with drying time in between..
guess I'll have to use the chest in another area.
Do you have a pic of the work in progress wihtout the mirrors? I'm feeling picture starved lately... I'm searching houzz for inspiration for my own bedroom.
sorry Wendy, I havent taken a single pic yet..
have you looked at Pinterest? you just go to their site and type in Bedrooms.. 100's of pics will pop up for you.
I was able to just join but sometimes you have to be invited.. Just write me if you need an invite and I'll send ya one.
Thanks,I'llcheck it out.
Will the night tables be wider than the mirrors? I hope you get the spacing figured out so it works.
Not sure how much room is left if you used the chests. Would a floor lamp work on the off-centered side?
Use over-sized hangers for those heavy mirrors. Good luck!

unfortunately the mirrors are about the same width as the table... going back to the drawing board on this for now..
thanks everyone for your suggestions and help.
I'll be back when I get it figured out and photographed..
