I found this old mirror at the swap meet.
Some old hardware and some pickets from an old fence

I found this old mirror at the swap meet.


This was the last project I had to finish before the sale and I got 'er done today. I bought this old mirror at the swap meet and decided to hang it on something as a background. Couldn't find just the right thing, so what does a junker do...that's right, you make it yourself. Found these old pickets hanging around in the back, cut some up and used various parts for the shelf. I used the picket tops as brackets and the rest for the supports, added some hooks to the bottom and glued the mirror on with constuction adhesive. Now if it all holds together it will be a miracle...ok maybe not a miracle, but good....it would be good.

saclark writes: Georgia- I love your mirror!!! I seem to have a thing for old fence pickets and you surely put them to good use. I have made something similar in the past only I just had the bottom of the pickets left after using the tops for a project. Couldn't throw them away, no sir. So I put them together and cut the top into a boat shape. I had a piece of mirror cut the same shape. Great for cottages. Can I ask you how you attached your mirror?

I have learned so much from everyone on this site and that makes things so much more fun to share! Of course I can not sleep without waking up and having things POP into my head but I think that's when I get a lot of my best ideas...I'm not over thinking it. Can't wait to share the photos of the sale, it is a really good one, and so much fun. And Rachel...you go right ahead and send me jewelry anytine the fancy strikes you!

I have a wall of mirrors in my bedroom...now I need to find some picket fence and attach the mirror and add it to the wall. Thanks for the idea. I might just have to send you another piece of jewelry...Rachel Knoblich Posted: 10:10 pm on September 17th
