Here at Alcove we have lots of ideas rocketing around. Plenty on our 'to do' list that we never seem to find the time to get working on!
Top of that list was to make a Sash Window Mirror. Eagle eyed customers may
note that this Victorian Sash Window has been stripped and on the wall of alcove for months now, looking lovely in it's own right, but this week Gary finally found the time to finish its transformation.
This Victorian box sash window was originally painted white in a Stoke on Trent home. It has been ripped out and reclaimed by Gary and stripped to remove the paint and return it to its beautiful wood.
Gary has used his glazing experience to fit six purpose cut mirrored panels into the frame to create this striking mirror.
Apologies for the poor photo, I can't wait to get into the shop tomorrow and take lots of photos in a better light!
The beauty of these mirrors is that they really open up a room and let so much light in. They also look great in both period and modern homes, and can look strikingly modern or Shabby Chic depending on the frame.
We will also be making Sash mirrors of varying sizes and some with frames painted in Farrow & Ball.
It's so exciting, and I have a sneaky suspicion that one of these mirrors may be finding its way onto our own mantelpiece at home very soon!
Have a Fab Sunday!
I'm Debbie and I'm the heart behind Alcove.
