DIY Rope Mirror



Hey there!  We had our first snow in Denver today.  You know what that means?  Christmas time!  I will always associate snow with Christmas... It is a Texas thing.  It is definitely not a Colorado thing.  Snow here means spring break, Valentines, and sometimes Mother's Day.  I don't know if I am okay with that... haha

I have been working on our Little Man's room like a crazy person.  I know we have over two and a half months, but I just can't help it.  I wouldn't be surprised if the people at Ikea know me by name now...  This DIY mirror is SUPER easy to make and fairly inexpensive!   Alright, let's get to it!

Materials:

Ikea Grundtal Mirror {$40, here}
Jute
8 ft Medium Size Rope {$7, home depot}
Picture Hanger
Large Metal Drawer Pull {$6, home depot}
Nails

Directions:

1.  Tie the ends of the rope in single knots.  You may need to cut your rope down to a better length {i had to}.

2.  Using the left and right hanging holes, tie your rope to the mirror by using the jute.  Be careful not to tie the jute too tight!



3.  Attach the picture hanger to the wall where you want the mirror itself to hang.  Hang the mirror using the middle hook.

4.  Now position your rope and find where you want the pull to go.  Hammer your rope into the wall.  Next I used a flat nail so I could easily slide the pull onto it.  I applied a little hot glue on the nail and slid the nob on. 



I had to play with the rope knots some so it would lay nice and that is it!



I can't wait to share more of Little Man's room with you!  :)
