GOOD THINGS Make a room feel more spacious with this magic mirror trick from the October 2015 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
From the magazine:
Reflect on This
Adorn standard-issue round mirrors with colorful cord and they'll not only embellish a room, they'll give the illusion of more space, too.

More from the magazine:
1. For an 8-inch-diameter mirror, cut an 80-inch piece of paracord (light- weight nylon rope, avail- able at crafts-supply stores) and fold in half. For larger mirrors, add 2 inches of cord for every additional inch in diameter.
2. Tie a basic knot 13 inches from the folded end, so you have a 13-inch loop. (For larger mirrors, add 1 inch for every additional inch in diameter.) Lay mirror, reflective-side up, on a flat surface, and place cord on top, with loop near upper edge and knot near lower.
3. Bring loose ends of cord around back of mirror. Thread them through loop at top (pulling tight to prevent slippage). Spread apart cord on front of mirror to form a V.
4. Finish by tying a basic knot a few inches from end of strings, then hang from a knob. (We used cabinet knobs.)
