We have a short wall outside our bedroom that had been crying out for attention and a reproduction Cheval mirror that was looking for a place to hang for lack of standing room.
1st step was to place the holding brackets on the wall. We used fancy ceiling plant hook hangers. I didn't want to run the risk of someone knocking the mirror off the wall, and I didn't want to destroy the option of having it stand on the floor again, so I wanted to keep the swivel hangers attached to the frame in tact. They would have looked silly just poking out there.
After ten years, I decided it was time to give my room a face lift. We installed new windows, painted the walls and found a fantastic platform bed on Craigslist. I'm loving my new room.
We wanted to install a patio roof over a portion of our chicken run, but we didn't want to have to deal with working on a ladder for installation and repair, as the terrain is varied and at the ages of 68 and 66, the easier the task the better it is for us.
Hubby was tired of storing this old Victrola. It was in good working order, but no one wanted it. We couldn't even give it away. He was going to put it by the side of the road to see if there were any takers, or eventually donate it to our fire pit. Always ready to save a piece of old furniture I told him I wanted to keep it and make it over as a storage/serving station. Initially he wasn't that thrilled with the idea, but he let me bring it into the studio for it's remake.
