A little while back now, I made my Farmhouse Drawer Caddy out of a disappointing find at an online garage sale. But rather than throwing her to the kerb, I decided to try and salvage some of her sweet features. The last piece left was her sweet mirror! So here began my Dresser Mirror Hook project.
DIY Dresser Mirror Hook
This sweet mirror was is such good nick and I am so glad that I have been able to save her. She had been sitting in storage for a while so needed a good clean to get her prepared and all ready for me to paint.
Using one of my favourite coloured chalk paints, Duck Egg Blue, I gave her 2 coats, using my 1″ Brush. Then once dry I sanded her back using my sanding block to create a nice distressed look. Already she was looking much happier. To allow her to hang on the wall I attached two eye hooks and then threaded through some picture wire and anchored off using my plyers.
Then using some door handles that were left over from another project, I drilled 2 holes and attached. I thought the addition of some handles would then make the Dresser Mirror Hook a little more practical! She could then be used to hang some jewellery, a sweet country style hat or some favourite scarves from. You can find her (NOW SOLD) for a reluctant sale in my shop ! 🙂
One of the many wonderful things I love about what I do is stretching my imagination into so many different directions to save something! What have you saved lately? I’d love to hear about your projects…. just leave a comment below!!! 🙂
Be sure to PIN for later 🙂
