Friends you are in for a treat. I have a super fun before and after DIY for you today.I’m going to show you how I upcycled my Pier 1 circle mirror into a nautical inspired sisal rope mirror.
Do you ever get sick of your wall art? Where you are just over it… You can’t imagine it being on your wall for one more moment…? Me too.
This post is a little story about a mirror I gave up on how I brought it back to life. With sisal rope. And a glue gun…
I bought this hanging mirror about seven years ago. I paid full price for this piece at Pier 1, long before I knew anything about my home decor style, or how much things should cost. I was a new wife, with a new [empty] home and I was desperate to fill it up.
So seven years later I was still hanging on to this thing. I had tried to get rid of it but for some reason it still sat in my garage for close to a year before I decided it was time to make it over.
I recently decided to decorate my powder room with a somewhat nautical/beachy theme. One day while I was out in the garage a light bulb went off in my head when I saw this mirror. How about a sweet sisal roped port hole looking mirror to hang in the bathroom?
Done. It was time to make it happen.
This mirror was super easy to update because the little circle mirrors just pop right out.
I cut out a cardboard circle as the backing for my port hole. After centering the mirror on the cardboard, I used gorilla glue to secure the mirror on the cardboard.
This is where the fun starts! I wrapped sisal rope around the mirror securing it with hot glue all the way around until it covered the entire cardboard circle.
I added a wall hanging hook to the back to prepare it for hanging.
I decided to make two and hung them in the powder room. The rest of the room is bare still but not for long.
I am in LOVE with the result of these sisal rope circle mirrors! And the best part is that I still have seven more little mirrors to repurpose. I can’t wait to figure out how to use the others!
