I love a good makeover. The kind where the plain girl who’s been quietly going through life half hoping no one ever notices her, half hoping that someday will be her day to be transformed and swept off her feet by the handsome football player, or maybe Prince Charming himself!
That was kind of like the Stratford Mirror by Wayfair. It was sweet and simple but needed a little oomph! a little vavavoom!
One to never turn down a DIY Challenge, I accepted the offer from Wayfair and HomeTalk to makeover this plain mirror into a coastal beauty!
1 Framed Mirror
100 feet of Twisted Sisal Rope
Hot Glue Gun
Bag of Starfish
1 Container of Hard Coat Mod Podge
1 Bag of Sea Shell Decorative Filler
This mirror makeover couldn’t be easier! The most difficult part is sitting for a few hours gluing rope around and around in circles. The key is to keep your rope tight and even, trimming it off at the end and then looping back around with a new row.
After rope is applied, attach starfish using hot glue. Heavily coat shelf ledge with mod podge and layer with sea shell filler. Allow to dry.
I really love how this turned out and I have the perfect spot for it in my Coastal Powder Room. It puts me in the mood for hot summer days and the beach! A big thank you to Wayfair and Hometalk for including me in the DIY Challenge! Be sure to check out Wayfair for tons of fabulous home decor and HomeTalk for tons of fabulous home inspiration!

Hi Girls I love love this mirror so coastal and perfect for spring. Much love to you both Kate xoxo
Love this!!!! I am a firm believer that anything looks much cuter with starfish on it!
Have a blessed and amazing day!
This is awesome! I love how it turned out!
Suzy @ Worthing Court says
It turned out great, Heather! I’ve fallen in love lately with using rope to embellish anything I can get my hands on!

Marty Walden says
This looks amazing! I’m never going to have a beach house but I can sure dream and add a few accessories to my home.
Kimberly @ A Night Owl says
Such a lovely makeover Heather! I really love what you did here!
Cheryl / Point of View Creations says
I love this! I am redoing my bathroom with a beachy feel and this will be a perfect project. Thanks for sharing it
Great idea. I bought a huge ornate mirror from a family estate sale last fall. The ornate trim is in a lot worse shape than I thought and have been racking my brain on how to salvage this piece. This is it!! One thing… when attaching the rope to you start on the outside and work towards the middle or vice versa?
Yvonne @ StoneGable says
Congratulations on your winning! This certainly is a fabulous mirror. So easy and with a big beachy inpact! Very happy for you! You are one talented girl!

Art Framer NYC says
So beautiful & rustic. Love this. Thanks.
Love it!!! Where did you get the starfish?
Wish I had one of those mirrors but I’ll make due with what I have handy in house. Your mirror is so incredible, love all layers used to make it so beachy. Who doesn’t love beachy? Even if it’s not beachy season this mirror will look so great in any room. Awesome inspiration, pinning this.
I just wanted to thank you for sharing the beautiful coastal rope mirror! You helped me complete a project of my own.

I have just a unframed mirror in m bathroom, do I need to frame it first or can I just put the rope on it without the frame
Mary Ellen Mandeville says
