I grabbed this large round serving basket with glass bottom off the local Facebook Marketplace for $5. I truly had no idea what I was going to to do with it when I claimed it, I just knew I loved the aesthetic and could find some use for it in my house. My husband does not always love when I buy without purpose, but obviously he’s getting used to it 🙂
The handles were worn but nothing a little hot glue couldn’t handle. So I fixed up the handles and then it dawned on me. A mirror! I’ve been scouring the earth trying to find the perfect round mirror for my entry way, but I can’t find the right size so this will be perfection!
I used mirror spray paint that I had on hand, it’s pricy but is super cool! You apply it to the opposite side that you want to be the mirror. It dries quickly so I was able to complete this project relatively quickly. It does scratch really easily, so be very careful when handling it. It required 2-3 coats before it was ready to go. Once completely dry, return to basket and hang. GORGEOUS!!
