I am taking part in the Wayfair Blogger Challenge sponsored by my good friends at Hometalk. The challenge theme was “geometric” “black & white” or “rope”. I suppose my project hits two of those themes. Are stripes geometric?
I really like this Stratford Wall Mirror with Shelf. It is made to hang on the wall, but I was pleasantly surprised that it will also sit on a table. It’s very nice “as is” but remember I’m suppose to change it up.
I decided to go with the black & white theme, but went with something less permanent than paint. I reached for some black electrical tape. I used a scrap piece to help place my stripes the right width apart as I moved down the mirror.
I tucked in the end of the tape under the wooden frame, and wrapped the other end slightly around the back of the mirror frame.
I continued the pattern from the top of the frame to the bottom, placing three stripes on the shelf itself. I then put a piece of tape at the top and the bottom of the base.
I LOVE the look of the yellow daffodils with the black and white framed mirror. Remember to think outside the box when you decorate. You could easily change out this mirror with the seasons with all the colored and patterned tape available these days! I thought my idea was original (using electrical tape) but after I did this project, I saw a framed mirror covered with electrical tape entirely. I suppose there isn’t anything that hasn’t been done before. 🙂
Wayfair sent me this mirror as part of the DIY Blogger Challenge, all opinions are my own.
