I decided this year the powder room needed a facelift. I had the same old stuff in there for the last 5 years and It was getting well, pretty drab. I shopped around everywhere for just the right accessories. I wanted a more natural, yet up to date stylish look to the room than the previous setting. In my decorative decor search I just could not find the right wall art for this room. So I gave up. I hung this plain white round mirror in there for a while, but it was just missing something and then it hit me, I’ll make one of the cool rope mirrors I saw on Ballard Designs website. This project was so easy and fast, it literally took 30 minutes to make. Now my powder room is complete. Here’s my version of how it’s done~
Jute Rope Mirror Ballard Inspired
Materials: Mirror, bucket handle, roll of natural sisal jute rope, hot glue and gun.
Take the end of your jute rope, trim the end in a slant and start gluing your rope on the inner part of the circle frame. Add the glue to the back of the rope. Once you get the inner circle done you can put the glue onto the frame itself and press the ropes together as you wrap to keep them from gaping open.
Continue on until the end. Cut the end of your rope in a slant and tuck under or close to the rope above it. Hot glue loops on the back top portion of the mirror and add your bucket handle. And that’s it! Super easy and so cute!
