Another use for Mirror Harps

I picked up this large shutter door on one of my treasure hunts.  Since I am in the mode of building with what I have, it finally received some attention.  

Here is a pair of mirror harps I picked up from a garage sale this summer.  Another treasure found.

I glued on an applique at the top of the door.

Next I attached the harps from behind the door.  I had a half of an end table (I used the other half on another hall tree). I attached this to the top of the harps through the handy and already there screw holes you can see in the photo above.

After it was all put together, I dry brushed layers of white, grey and linen paint onto the hall tree.

This is how she turned out.  The mirror hangs from a simple S hook.

Some hooks were added to hang those coats and hats.  

Next time you have a random pair of mirror harps, I hope you don't pass them up!

  3. great idea! I have one of these large shutter doors - it's a bright yellow at the moment and hiding behind a big armour in the hallway, scared to come out! :) Thanks for linking up to Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday.
