Every time I visit a thrift or charity store I seem to find hoards of vintage tennis and squash racquets amongst the sporting goods... thankfully a number of clever DIY - ers have come up with a great way to up-cycle these vintage treasures.

Love these racquet mirrors! hometone

You can make similar by having your local glass or frame shop cut a piece of mirror to size then simply place the racquet on a disposable cloth or piece of card board and using a product like liquid nails glue the mirror to the strings. Screw a hook into the top of the racquet and affix to the wall. Further instructions can be accessed via apartment therapy.
