Round Basket Mirror

Hello, my name is Becky and I have a SLIGHT obsession with round mirrors.  I may or may not own close to a dozen of them.  

And, I have decided it is my duty to share this love of the round reflective surface with others.

So now I am on the hunt for round junk I can use for mirror backgrounds like this large, awesome, earthy, organic looking bamboo steamer basket I found at the thrift store.

It was a little more than I like to spend, but I figured the lid could also be used for another mirror or a wreath of some type.

I placed a mirror from Michaels (buy these with your weekly coupon!) in the middle to center it and know where I should and should not put glue.

I used a two part epoxy from the hardware store.

I made sure to glue on the high points or the places where the mirror would actually touch the basket.

Simple and oh so chic!

I like the "shelf area" it has--a perfect place for some antlers.

Alas, it will be sold so someone else can enjoy the round mirror love. 


  1. That steamer basket is awesome - what a great find, and a cute idea to put the mirror inside it!

    1. Thanks Angie. I put it in my cart, took it out, but then put it back in. I was happy with how it turned out.

  2. So cute! Love how you styled it with the antlers too - perfect for fall!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
