It's time for another Dollar Store DIY! The first monday of every month I'll share a Dollar store item that I've altered and turned into stylish decor. Last month, I transformed flimsy Dollar Tree mini drawers into the perfect industrial farmhouse storage. This month, my item of choice was a 10 inch metal burner cover! I LOVE captain's mirrors and knew the minute I saw the burner covers that I could turn one into the perfect DIY mirror.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get to the makeover!
After buying the 2 pack of burner covers I went in search of the perfect size mirror. I checked a few local craft stores and finally found a 10 in beveled mirror at Hobby Lobby. After I had all my supplies I lightly sanded the burner cover then sprayed it with a few light coats of my favorite ORB spray paint.
While I had my spray paint out I also sprayed 2 D-ring hooks and machine screws.
While the the spray paint was drying I took a piece of scrap wood and cut it into 8 smaller pieces.
all purpose adhesive to the top of the wood then laid the mirror on top.
After knotting off the ends and trimming the stray threads the mirror was ready to hang!
The mirror isn't large, but would be perfect for a small space or for creating a mirror gallery wall.
What do you think? It doesn't look anything like a burner cover anymore does it?
