Rope Mirror Frame
My powder room had a boring oval mirror that was glued onto the wall. Since I couldn't replace it (easily), I decided to frame it with some rope to add texture and detail.
Here's the finished mirror!
I bought the rope at a rope store in the Outer Banks. Tightly tape where you want to cut it and then just cut! I used garden clippers, but any sharp knife will do. The tape keeps the rope from unwinding or fraying.
Find the center and nail to the wall. Yep, I just nailed it straight to the wall since I couldn't take the mirror off the wall. I used 5 finish nails total. I then set the nails with a nail setter so you can't see the nails through the rope.
All done! I added a little burlap ribbon to the bottom where the two ends of the rope meet. Easiest project ever!
