Mirror Update

I am always looking for ways to repurpose things. Using things I have and making them better. Re-working something to serve our home better.

About a year ago I purchased a mirror at Ross. I liked the mirror. It was the right size and shape. It was the right price. However, after having it up on the mantel for a while I decided that maybe I made a hasty choice, and that maybe the style wasn’t quite mine.

So, I took it down for a while, and then I decided to give it a little update. Maybe you saw it during my Christmas tour??


Can you believe that’s a DIY?!? Yes it is! It was simple and cheap but it definitely took some time.

All I used was a roll of jute, some hot glue, (and a roll of jute ribbon for the side).


I decided on a design and just started twisting and bending and turning and gluing.


In the end, I had this.

Unique and a little more my style. 😉
