1. It makes the space look bigger / gives the room depth. I think this is such a great way to open up a space in your home or apartment. And I love that when I sit on my sofa, I can basically see my decor, instead of just seeing a wall. At first, I was going to put the mirror on the left side of my sofa, but then when you look in the mirror, you would see my bathroom in it, soooo that was a no, lol.
2. It’s obviously not a mirror that can be hung, and is meant to lean on a wall, so it saves you the hassle. One thing I HATE having to do is hang things. I get so excited for canvases and wall frames, but when it’s time to hang, it’s a pain in the ass. Trying to measure it correctly to go exactly in the middle, getting it to hang straight, climbing on top of things so you can reach where you want to put the nail in, and the list goes on. Oh, and don’t get me started on when you feel like moving a wall piece you have hammered in. lol. I’ve actually never had a leaner mirror before, so being able to just slide this exactly where I wanted it was amazing! I was deciding on 3 different spots, and all I had to do was slide it over to try each spot out… rather than having cody hold it in place so I can step back to look at it.
3. Mirror Selfies, of course! Okay, I guess to look at your outfits. When I first moved out and got all of my stuff situated into my apartment, I thought everything was perfect… until I tried to look if my shoes looked good with my outfit. (Sounds vain, but you kind of need to be able to see this if you’re a fashion blogger.) I DIDN’T HAVE A FULL LENGTH MIRROR! You guys. I literally had to always go into my bathroom and hold my leg up so I could see it in the mirror and with my outfit. After a few months of doing that. I got a super cheap one to hang on the inside of my closet door, and that thing was probably more annoying than just holding my leg up. (But let’s be real… mirror selfies all the way.)
4. Getting married and need a unique way to display what table your guests will be sitting at? I actually just found this idea on pinterest, and I cannot WAIT to be able to use my leaner mirror for it! I mean… how cool is this?! I’ll be getting married next year on September 9th, so we have a while until I’ll be able to do this, but ugh, I’m excited.
