Fetching Finds: Mirror Wall

Does anyone every really finish decorating their home? I know I don't.  
I take that back, When we lived in our first home, ( a town-home) after 2 years of living there, I finished decorating it. We put it up for sale immediately and moved.  he he he
I've got a LOT more decorating to do in my current house, so it's nice to say that one more wall is finished.
My sister picked up this Mirror at the public auction for me for only 20 bucks.  I wish you could feel how heavy it is. It could kill a man. was that inappropriate?
Really though, this thing is high quality and just my style, so I asked my husband to hang it in the bathroom, and set it on the floor just below where I had imagined it.  



When I came home he had hung it on the wrong wall!  Curse words!!
Now I had a really heavy mirror that was a pain to hang on a wall that was WAY too big for it.  
I have to choose my battles, so I gathered some plates I had laying around, picked up a few from the local thrift store and even stole a few out of the kitchen cupboard. The mirror hangs directly behind the bathroom mirror and gives the room a whole new openness.
I admit, The result was better than the original plan.  Good Job Steve!
