Mirror Mirror On The Wall

I have been on the lookout for an oval mirror for the playroom. The little one has been playing dress up lately and we don't have a mirror low enough for her to see herself.


Of course I wanted to find one for a fantastic deal and the goodwill is where I finally found it. Ten dollars later and I was happily on my way home with this.



The problem was how to hang this very heavy mirror so it will be secure on the wall.
That's when these little drawer handles from Anthropologie come in.


And a bunch of 3m velcro picture hanging strips keep it from moving when touched by little hands.


The birds were used as anchors.


A couple coats of white paint and this is what we ended up with.


The birds can be used to hang necklaces or dresses on.
 This is the little painting project I talked about last week. It did snow this weekend and now the frame and paint cans are finally out of my dining room!

  8. Thank you for the sweet compliments! It's always so great to get feedback on a project. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out at first. My daughter loves it, I should have done it sooner.

    this mirror is just perfect. those sweet bird drawer pulls are like the icing on a cake! did you just screw them into the frame? or use the velcro holder tape for the birds? such a classic piece!

    i noticed down below you said you have a newly designed blog... i think it looks fabulous!
    awesome job.

    HAPPY SPRING!

  16. Kellie,
    The threaded screw on the drawer pulls went through the frame into wall anchors. The velcro was used around the frame just be extra safe.
    Thank you!
