    You could add a pattern to it using washi tape or some peel and stick wallpaper.

  • You could hang several decorative frames on the mirrored wall to give it a 'gallery feel'. Command strips would work well.

    Hi Joyce,

    What kind of an update are you looking for ? Something to apply to the mirrors, something for the edges, or for framing the area around the mirrors? There are also films that you can get from diy stores to accent or cover the mirrors. Amazon is also a good source.

    Hello Joyce, you might be able to create the look shown in this video, only in have the mirrored wall, maybe add trim boards to divide it up in some way, maybe not as many sections as shown in the video. Good luck and hope this might inspire you.
