Mirrored Dresser

As a result of this post I want to look for a taller dresser for my son’s room.

In the past week or so I’ve started thinking about a mirrored one.

This piece
from Pier 1 might be an option.  I really want one that has five drawers, though, and is a little taller.

I know that I would love to have a mirrored dresser in this room (remember it doubles as a guest room sometimes, so I want classic style as well as teenage boy in there).  The question is, what would a teenage boy think of it?  And would he break it?  (think lacrosse balls…)

Realistically, if I can find something used I’ll do that first.  We’ve got a half dozen or more items above this purchase on our priority list.  We’ll see what happens.  His birthday is early in June and I would really like to have his room looking great before that.  He’s had a tough year.

On a similar note, I had a few minutes to spare while waiting in the car recently, and I sketched out plans for all the bedrooms I’m trying to pull together for my kiddos.  It was a lot of fun.  I sketched them in the notebook I keep in my purse and it’s been helpful to have it done.  When I’ve had new ideas I’ve been able to add them, and when I ‘ve seen things that I like it’s been easy to glance at the sketches, decide if it’s what I really want, close the notebook, and move on.  I feel like having that plan in drawing form is helping me make good financial decisions and keep my eye on the money I’m saving for what I really want.  I guess I’m learning some of the benefits of having the design sketched out.  No wonder all the professionals do it!

I hope your weekend is wonderful.


  • I love mirrored furniture. I bought a huge mirrored trunk-looking dresser at Restoration Hardware last year. I asked my boys, ages 12 & 15, what they thought about a mirrored dresser for their rooms and they asked me why I would want to put grandma furniture in their rooms, and they said if I did, they would break the mirrors and poke out their eyes with it. Obviously they were kidding about the poking out their eyes part, but they weren’t kidding about telling me that mirrored furniture is for girls 😉

    Without even discussing it with my son, I know that he wouldn’t go for the idea. I’m just tempted by it because it’s also a guest room. I’m sure we’ll end up with something different, but like you, I think it’s gorgeous! Thanks for your input. I’m sure your boys are right.
