Perfectly Imperfect Mirror

In my opinion, perfect can be boring. I see beauty in imperfection and most of the time I’m drawn to things with flaws and faults. I could not live in a ‘perfect’ home. After all, people are not perfect, so why try to live in a perfect home? Our homes should reflect our beautiful flaws and imperfections.

To me, this mirror is a good example of perfect imperfection. I found it on the side of the road on a wet Monday morning. I knew it would end up in the back of a garbage truck unless I decided to make use of it. Since my daughter wanted a floor mirror for her room, this mirror had found a good home.

When I found this mirror, it was just a mirror without a frame. I cut a few old pieces of wood, glued the mirror on a piece of plywood, sanded the wood, and painted it aqua.The wood frame has plenty of cracks and flaws. But don’t you think they add personality and charm to the mirror? It’s a one of a kind and no store sells the exact mirror.

Perfectly imperfect!
