I made a couple of quick fall decor pieces to add to my entryway using Dollar Tree products! This diy scroll sign and mini mason jar are super quick and easy to create and add a subtle touch of fall while I get my other projects done for the season.Read More
In the recent months, I’ve been trying to define my home décor style. And, after some thought, I’m calling it modern with a touch of rustic. I tend to lean toward clean lines, a somewhat minimalistic feel, with some natural textures and roughed up elements. Having said that, I created another YouTube inspired project (that is a copycat) of a PB (pottery barn) wall mirror. If you follow Diy crafters on YouTube, you may know what I’m talking about.
When I first saw this diy I wasn’t familiar with the PB piece that was being copied, but I knew I had the perfect spot for a wall mirror in my living room (which is screaming for some wall décor). So, I went on the PB website to check out their version, only to discover that they have multiple variations of tiled wall mirrors. I decided to make my own version of the Aiden accent wall mirror, because I had already gone to dollar tree and found mirrors. The store usually carries a mirror with a narrower frame, but I found these which worked out perfectly for my project.
Ok, now on to the steps I took…
Here are the supplies I used:
- 4 framed mirrors
- Hot glue
- Super glue
- Chalk paint (and a brush)
Removed all staples and hanging supports from back of frames
Removed cardboard backing and mirror, and painted along the inner edge and outside of frames
-painting the inner edge will prevent the mirror from reflecting the black
-I used a dry brush technique(wiping most of the paint off before applying) to create a weathered/distressed look
After all the frames were dry, I used hot glue (a small dot) in the corners of the frame to secure the mirror inside, then replaced all the cardboard backing
Placed all 4 frames on the foam board, traced around the frames, and cut the board to fit
Secured the frames onto the foam board using crazy glue and hot glue
Now, I should be honest, I haven’t figured out how I’m going to hang this securely on the wall. If you have any thoughts on that, please leave me a comment. But, I am extremely happy with how it turned out! This was literally a $5 project since I only had to buy the foam board and mirrors. What do you think?
Thanks again, and God bless!
