Here is my latest find and inspiration!  What is it?  It  is an antique mirror harp.  What's an antique mirror harp, some of you may ask?  It is definitely not musical, but its name has to do with its shape. It
is how a mirror can be attached to a dresser.   Some mirror harps are plain and some are ornate, such as this one.  The harp is attached to a dresser and the mirror is attached to the harp and allows the mirror to be tilted forwards or backwards and positioned as one likes.

As soon as I spotted it, I pictured it hanging upside down with a
wreath of greens attached to it and mounted on a wall. I love wreaths of greens, as they blend and enhance any color theme.  This Mirror Harp would be stunning over a mantle; over a long buffet/sideboard; in a bedroom over a bed; over a table in an entry way/foyer or over a shelving unit or credenza in a study or office.  This is truly a one-of-a-kind in the world!  The “once upon a time” sheen finish is completely worn away with age, featuring its wonderful, naturally grayed wood grain.  This only adds to its one-of-a-kind beauty, and that does not even take into account that it is REPURPOSED into a one-of-a-kind wall décor.  Had I not spotted it, it would probably have made it to a fire pit.  Phew!  A piece of historic beauty is saved!  

Have you repurposed something?  Would love to hear about
