Being a creative craft and DIY Blogger, there are times where I get stuck. I personally have the pressure (that I put on myself) of inspiring others… after all that’s why I started DIY Inspired. Today, I am stuck. I bought these two mirrors at HomeGoods for a steal! They were in the clearance section because they were damaged. One frame retailed for $120 and I got it for $8 and the other retailed for $80 and I got it for $12. I couldn’t pass that up!! Even the cashiers were amazed when I went to check out. Needless to say, I need some mirror makeover inspiration.
I don’t want to just repair and paint it like I did with this free curbside pick-up, or turn them into organization boards like this one and this one. I want to do something totally different. Here are a few pictures.
This one is the smaller one. It’s 30”X35”. This was the one that was originally $80.00 and I got it for $12.00. This one is not real wood. (See my craft room in the reflection??)
Here is a close-up of the damage.
This one is the larger one. It’s 41”X33”. This was originally $120.00 and I got it for $8.00!
Here is the close-up of the damage on this one.
Both of the mirrors are beveled and in perfect condition… not even a tiny scratch! So here’s where I’m stuck. Do I repurpose them completely? A coffee table? OR do I just upcycle them? Add driftwood? Add metal? I’m lost!
I DO know that I would like them to look more upscale and less “crafty”. Any thoughts out there in the WWW? Help!
