Rope Mirrors | Shop or DIY

Rope has come a long way, from being utilitarian and used on boats, to chic home accent with a nod to Nautical. But the price tag can be high, especially for rope mirrors. So I gathered some great inspirational DIY rope mirror ideas with links to tutorials. Take a look!

Let's start with the rope mirror from Restoration Hardware. It's an impressive piece made of rope and antique finished iron, coming in at $520. Shown hanging over a bathroom vanity. Now lets check out Leah's version of this rope mirror!

Her Mirror is smaller, without the dark bulky frame, but still has the same vibe, using eye hooks to attach it to the wall. For a detailed tutorial, follow the link. Leah's grandfather was a sailor, and she wanted to incorporate some nautical elements in the nursery of her son without making the room beachy or too cute. The rope mirror was a perfect way to achieve exactly that.

And a Pottery Barn inspired DIY Nautical Rope Mirror. I think Pottery Barn had various rope mirror designs in their summer catalog. Kelly used a mirror charger that she glued on a large sturdy foam board. Again, click over for more information, if this is the one for you.

Two's company rope mirrors
Rope Mirrors by Two's Company. How do you like the square design? I like it! Nate Berkus has a tutorial for this mirror, well, for the round version. Click on How to Make a Rope Mirror for the scoop. Key is, to use chunky rope and to create a loop on top. I've also read that a good and very strong glue to use is Barges Cement. It's a specialty glue normally used in leather crafting. It will securely bond the rough rope to any surface.

Now think of a space that could use some light, a rope mirror might be the perfect addition!

Just yesterday I found a ship wheel mirror that I need to give a bit of a makeover to. But gosh I had not seen the rope mirrors before...it's been way too long since I've visited over here and I am looking forward to catching up with all the inspiration that I've missed! It was fun to see all these rope mirror ideas all in one place, as only you can do for us! Thanks Maya! ~Lili
