Easy Bedroom Update

Written by Kelly on November 4th, 2012



One of the easiest, least expensive and quickest way to update your bedroom is so simple, you will wonder why you did not think of it yourself!


If you are still living with a matching dresser and mirror set that you purchased over ten years ago, it is time to get rid of that matchy-match look and bring some personality into your bedroom!

I know they came as a set, but imagine how original you can be with a different mirror! The sizes and shapes of mirrors today are endless in variety and you can find a great mirror at a very reasonable price.


Here are a couple I love from Lamps Plus:

Mirrored Frame 35 1/2" Wide Moonlight Wall Mirror


Sunrays 32" Wide Antique Silver Wall Mirror


You can also find some great-looking inexpensive mirrors at big box stores such as Target:

- Brown/Natural Wall Mirror



Global Direct 42" x 32" Dorigrass Rectangle Framled Mirror


And Home Depot:


Another easy, inexpensive way to update your existing mirror is to paint it like I did in my room here:





Another original idea with mirrors:



If you like the idea of your mirror and dresser matching, that is fine! But if you are looking for ideas to bring some personality and originality to an old dresser set, I hope I have given you a few new ideas!

Does your dresser and mirror match together as a set? Or have you made changes to the mirror or dresser?

    But you have a great plan Sheila!

  2. No matchy-matchy going on here… But I am on the hunt for a long low dresser, and have a mirror waiting in the wings for a makeover once the dresser is discovered. So what we currently have going on doesn’t really count anyway. It’s pure function with boring form ;-)

    That is a great point Connie- changing the mirror vertically or horizonally can make a big change in the room.

    I recently gave my spare room a makeover.
    All my knotty pine dressers of 20+ years were all painted out a warm white with new bronze knobs.
    I am thrilled with the new look!

  6. Love love love these ideas! Removing a horizontally attached mirror and mounting it on the wall is one of the easiest/least expensive things to make a big change. Love that yopictured that here. It really does change that ‘matchy-matchy’ look.
