Charger into a Mirror

Kim from Sand & Sisal is back here to show us a simple way to transform an inexpensive charger that is normally used for special dinners into a stunning mirror that can grace your walls year round.   This is one of those easy projects where you think…why didn’t I think of that?   So welcome Kim as she shows us this quick project that I know you will want to try yourself.

I own chargers, but let’s get real here. How many of us actually use our chargers except for maybe a holiday dinner place setting? As much as I find myself gravitating toward the rows of chargers on store shelves, I know they won’t get used in my home! Chargers CAN be used though, maybe not the way you might think. Today, let me show you how to Turn a Charger into a Mirror! Now, THAT is something I can use!

Turn a charger into a mirror

Pier One always has a great collection of chargers to chose from. I chose 2 styles I liked. One was this ruffled edge wood charger in white with a bit of distressing. Pretty isn’t it?

The other charger had a black iron scrolled look. I needed white though, so I spray painted it in Heirloom White.

I picked up 7 inch mirrors at a craft store. They were under $3 each.

Mirrors

Apply adhesive to the back of the mirror and gently press your mirror in the center of the charger. You can use any adhesive you like, hot glue, silicone, E-6000, etc.

Allow your adhesive to set up, then flip your charger mirror over and hot glue on either a saw-tooth hanger or like I used… a soda can tab! I love these things! Think UP-CYCLING people!

And there you have it, a beautiful mirror made out of a charger you were never using in the first place! How easy is that? Use one or group many together for a beautiful mirrored wall display!
