Music To My Eyes: Reclaimed Record Mirror


There are very few things made of vinyl that would ever knowingly make it into my home. I would, however, make an exception for some classic records, if I could ever get my hands on a record player. I can still remember growing up listening to Whitney Houston and the Jackson 5 on vinyl, and there’s something about that sound that can’t be duplicated digitally. I’m sure my music-loving hubby would agree. But since I don’t think we’ll be hunting for a record player any time soon (although we’d probably find one right next to an 8-track player in some thrift store), this mirror is a great way to pay homage to the sound of vinyl — and keep it out of the landfill.

I love how the simple circles are combined to create a colorful flower-like frame. I’m not sure I’d hang this in the living room, though it would be pretty awesome paired with some vintage movie posters in black frames. But if my husband ever gets that in-home studio he’s been dreaming about for years, I definitely know what will be welcoming visitors in the entryway. If you’ve got a music lover on your holiday gift list, they’ll be able to appreciate this like noone else can.

    The Jackson 5 frozen into a mirror frame–aah! Aren’t there plenty of bad ’80s records that they could use instead?
