One fateful day I was browsing at “Re-Store” and all their mirrors were 75% off! I picked up this bad boy for only $2.00! It is huge and old-school heavy duty! It had so much potential! I had no clue what I was going to do with it, but I wanted it!
A few days later I was staring at this really blank, boring wall on my patio. I had no idea what to put there… LIGHTBULB!
Here is how I turned my $2.00 find into a beautiful finishing touch on my patio.
I wanted to beef up the sides to give the frame more visual weight. So, I added 1×2’s to the edge as trim. I then primed and painted that sucker.
FYI : You can get paint samples from Home Depot for $2.97, and they are perfect for small projects like this!
I still wanted to added some character to the mirror, and I still needed to hardware to hang it. So I went for 2 birds with 1 stone.
See, look how pretty the mirror turned out! Another plus, the hanging hardware will ensure that the mirror stays put, even in the Florida Hurricane season. 😉
