Then I spotted this when I was cleaning out the den closet:
It’s the garland from the Tord Boontje light (sans light) that we bought a few years ago. I was desperate to have it back then, but after getting it home and hanging the light, we realized it wasn’t really a fit for our old space, so I took the garland off the pendant and wrapped it around a ceiling light in our hallway, where it remained until we moved out. I hadn’t found the right home for it in the new place yet, but when I spotted it in the closet it gave me an idea.
1 Torj Boontje Garland + 1 frameless mirror = ??
Since I was off to Ikea for baby shower supplies anyway, I picked up this $15 frameless mirror:
We hung it above the dresser by the clips provided, and then I started wrapping the garland around it. The metal is very bendable but strong and super catchy, meaning it easily sticks to itself as you wrap it. Since I didn’t have enough length to wrap it around all the way I tucked some of it behind the mirror. Here’s what I ended up with:
I think it’s a great addition to the space and perfect for the holiday season, but not so much that it wouldn’t work year-round. Have you seen any other unique projects with with this garland?
