Hey guys! Today I’m sharing an easy project, a burlap framed mirror using a yard sale frame and a thrift store mirror.
I love this idea and I knew by using burlap, it would be the perfect project for our Get Your DIY on: Burlap Projects.
Here is what I started with:
And here is the finished product:
Here’s how I got here:
First I painted the frames in DIY chalk paint:
I found an old piece of quarter-inch plywood in the garage and cut it to fit my frame. Then I covered it in this pretty printed burlap I had left from an old project:
I reinserted it into my frame, using the old prong thingys (technical term) that were already there. I always try to open them with my fingernails until I have like two left and can’t possibly take the pain of opening another, then I cave and go dig for a flathead screwdriver… The last step is to attach the mirror to the burlap covered plywood using hot glue. Add hangers to the back if needed and that’s it!
I shared a tutorial on how to make a fabric framed mirror this Summer which is very similar, but this is even easier!
I love the creamy white against the burlap.
The horse in one of my favorite things. I had a gift card to a store that was going out of business and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to use it, but I stopped in there just in time to pick up this hanging wooden horse. The bracket was one of two I found at a thrift store:
I found the frame at a yard sale this Summer for $3 and the mirror was a thrift store find for about the same price. I already had the fabric, so this beautiful new mirror only cost me around $6!
I love when I can take something old and give it a whole new life!
