DIY Restoration Hardware Knock Off Iron & Rope Mirror

$30
1 Hour
Easy

We fell in love with the Restoration Hardware Iron & Rope Mirror, but not its $659 price tag. Armed with an Ikea mirror & some hardware store supplies we made our own for $30.
Our completed mirror. Can you tell that the "iron" band really isn't iron at all? Here's how we did it.
We traced our mirror onto a piece of plywood, and cut it with a jig saw.
We wrapped a 2" wide strip of 1/4" MDF around the outside of the plywood, nailing it in place.
The frame was painted with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, and the mirror was glued inside the frame. A rope & hanging hardware were attached.
The finished mirror in action!
For complete instructions including how to hang the mirror (hint, it's not hanging on the rope!) click through to the blog for full details.

    Hi, where did you get the 2" wide strip of 1/4" MDF that's flexible? I want to make a boarder around a sign that's arch at the top and I can't seem to find anything that would bend around the arch. I've look in Home Depot and Lowe's, and online no luck what's so ever. I love the mirror thinking of doing one myself, if I find the boarder.


    Thanks,

    Mercedes
