Have you seen these mirrors? I love them and want one but holy cow! $299 and up for these and that is just not in my budget. I created a Pottery Barn inspired mirror using Dollar Tree mirrors.
Here is the picture of the original at Pottery Barn. Do you see the price?!!!
I started with 6, 8×10 mirrors from Dollar Tree.
I pulled the mirror out of each frame and set it aside.
I painted each of the frames with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Silver Shadow. I dry brushed it on, and used a chip brush. This would help give it the farmhouse look I was going for.
Once all of the frames dried, I set them in the shape I wanted. I replaced all the mirrors back into the frames.
I then used E6000 to glue all of the edges touching together.
I placed gaffers tape over all of the creases and the diagonally making an “x” for added reinforcement.
I hot glued on a piece of foam core board cut to size on the back. Now the piece was nice and solid.
I placed picture hanging Command Strips in each of the 4 corners so that I could hang the piece up on the wall.
I hung the piece in my entry way and think it makes a nice statement (and at a fraction of the cost).
