7 Decorative Mirrors for Above the Mantel

We are still working on our living room makeover over here. It’s painfully slow, but it’s getting there. The floors are in, and the board and batten is about 3/4 done. We still have to add it above the fireplace and on one other wall. In the meantime, I am working on the fun task of spackling a tiny million nail holes. Once that is done, I can get to painting it. I’m also making small decor changes in this room, one of which is replacing the mirror that is currently above my fireplace. I know what I want, but these types of decorative mirrors can be a bit expensive so I’ve been searching for something similar that costs less.

I like this style of mirror, one with a bit of an arched top. Even though this one is a bit ornate, it’s my favorite. Of course, this is one of the most expensive on today’s list.

I am feeling like a metal frame is what is going to look the best here.

I absolutely love this one, but with my rustic, chippy-paint mantel a chippy-paint mirror might be overkill.

This one is budget friendly compared to some of the others, and I am loving the black frame, though I don’t know that’ll work above my fireplace.

This one is the least expensive of them all but is currently sold out. This store usually restocks their sold-out pieces, so keep a watch on it if you love it.

I’m planning on spending some time visiting Home Goods and Marshalls. I think that will be my best bet to find an affordable option. If I can’t find one there, then I will likely buy one of these. Which one is your favorite?

  1. I like the black one. If the black finish does not work just use rub n buff on it and you will have a metallic look. Thinking of it for a spot in my bedroom and if I do I will definitely be applying Rub n Buff.

    1. Linda, that is such a great idea!

  2. That Beaudry Mirror is so beautiful, that’s why the price is not very friendly 🙂
