For me, old mirrors hold stories from the past and can bring a unique feel to any room. I like mirrors with personality - evidence that they've been a daily part of someone's life. I'm not concerned if some of the silver is worn off the back or if there are scratches and nicks. To me, it's all part of their charm.
I like to arrange a few on a shelf, a table top, or a wall to create a bright corner in the room. Any place is a good place for an old mirror or two - or three.

Thanks everyone for your kind words.
Fabulous idea. I hope you win.
I used to find really old mirrors in thrift stores. I bought the ones with interesting frames and shapes and hung them on a wall in a dark hallway and really liked the look. It really brightened things up.
Adds a nice touch of nostalgia too. I have a couple packed away. Might just as well get them out and use them like this. I really like the look too.
Thanks for a great idea. Pookarina
