By now we have all seen Restoration Hardware's rope and iron hanging mirror and all of the many similar options sold in stores nationwide, but even the cost of the copycat versions is more than I am willing to pay. I have seen a few DIYs on this as well, but I have yet to find one as cheap and easy as this one.
Restoration Hardware Mirror: $650
DIY Version: $39
HOW TO DO IT:
1. Buy Threshold mirror from Target.
2. Buy manila rope from Home Depot (3/8 in. and you will probably only need about 2-3 ft.).
3. Hang mirror knob where you want it.
4. Cut off pleather (sorry Target but there is no fooling anyone that this is leather) strap from mirror.
5. Tie desired length of rope onto mirror through loops and double knot!
This seriously only takes about 10 minutes total and for under $40 you can't complain about the price. The mirror and knob are obviously much cheaper quality than the RH one, but unless you get up real close, you can't tell just by looking at it. One thing to note is that this mirror is much smaller than the RH one, but I actually think that makes it more usable around the house. Enjoy!
