How To Make Unique Wall Mirrors From Tennis Rackets
A tennis racket is a kind of sports accessory that has a long wooden or plastic handle that is affixed to a big paddle-shaped hoop. The hoop itself consists of a patchwork of tightly weaved cords that let the object whack a ball against it. Older kinds of the tools are not typically used for competitive matches and are instead occasionally displayed for decorative reasons. To transform your old primitive tennis rackets into something more appealing, think about turning them into special wall mirrors.
Vintage wooden rackets are the perfect items for these do it yourself projects because they come in wide varieties of colors and sizes. Unlike a modern version, an older model is typically painted and handmade with combinations of hues that seemingly never end.
And because they are oak, you can paint them pretty much any hue you want so that they go with the paint and decorations of the space they will be displayed in.
If you don’t already own a couple of older wooden tennis rackets, consider searching for some at your local thrift stores or antique shops. You could also get lucky and find a few at neighborhood garage sales.
Once you have located a racket worthy of your crafting skills, you can begin gathering up the rest of the supplies that you will need for the project. These will include a mirror and extra strength super glue. If you are lucky enough to own or find a mirror that fits exactly over the net of the racket then the rest of process will go much quicker for you, otherwise any mirror will work as long as it has been cut down to size.
After the item has been sawed so that it goes in perfectly in the racket’s base, use the strong glue to attach it in there. All that is left is to nail up your new pieces so you can look at them everyday.
