I got this giant mirror from the yard sale leftover pile of a nearby home.
It was gold, which I didn't care for, so I spray painted it.
I read a tip online to slide sheets of cardstock under the frame and between the mirror. It worked great to keep the paint off the mirror and was so fast!
To hang it, I used a 50 pound gorilla hook. They are the best way we have found to hang most anything.
They just push into the wall with no tools and are easy to remove, leaving just a tiny hole.
Our son Bobby told us about Gorilla Hooks. He does construction jobs like remodels and he says he uses them to hang heavy things for his clients.
If you shop for Gorilla Hooks, the big packs are a lot cheaper per hook than the small packs. Our multi pack contained 35 hooks, we've been using them for everything.
The breakfast nook that is now kitchen space- where I hung the mirror.
I did a few little sewing jobs yesterday ......
Patched a hand towel
And I sewed a cover for a facial tissue box.
Then sew it up-if you want better detailed instructions, you can look on YouTube or Pinterest - which is what I did 😄
I do like how it turned out and have already cut out a second one.
Have a good Friday and good weekend everyone ❤️
