I ran to Dollar Tree and purchased 9 mirrors, and 2 pieces of black poster board. Total – $11
I laid out my mirrors on my table, mirror side down so I could work on gluing them together.
I started with a little E6000 gluing all the creases between the mirrors. After letting that dry I also glued over all of the creases with hot glue.
Once the hot glue was dry and cool, I added a piece of gaffers tape along each of the lines and in a giant “x” to add strength.
I cut my 2 pieces of black poster board so it would fit the back of the mirrors. I hot glued the poster board to the back of all the mirrors for extra strength and a solid back.
Here is what it looks like after I finished it. It can go vertical or horizontal.
I used 4 command strips to place it on the wall. I love how it turned out!

West Elm: Like Pottery Barn, West Elm offers a wide range of home decor and furniture items, but with a more modern and contemporary design aesthetic. They also offer eco-friendly and sustainable products.
Restoration Hardware: Known for its high-end, luxurious furnishings, Restoration Hardware is a direct competitor of Pottery Barn. They offer furniture and decor for every room in the house, with an emphasis on classic and traditional designs.
Crate & Barrel: Crate & Barrel is another retailer that competes with Pottery Barn in the home decor and furnishings market. They offer modern and stylish furniture and decor items that are often more affordable than Pottery Barn.

Pottery Barn Look Alike Tips
Are you looking to create stunning home decor that’s inspired by the Pottery Barn style, but don’t want to spend a fortune? Luckily, there are many ways to achieve a similar look without breaking the bank. Here are some tips for creating a high-end look with affordable decor pieces from various retailers:
- Start with a solid foundation of high-quality furnishings. Look for pieces made of solid wood, such as a farmhouse-style dining table and chairs or a sturdy coffee table. If you’re on a budget, check out Wayfair, Amazon, or even furniture outlets for similar pieces at more affordable prices.
- Add accent pieces and decor items to create a cozy and luxurious vibe. Consider adding a rug from Rugs USA or Crate and Barrel, or some pillows and pillow covers from Etsy or H&M Home. These small touches can make a big difference in the overall feel of your living room or entryway.
- Look for Pottery Barn dupes to save money on high-end items. For example, if you’re eyeing a Pottery Barn sofa or the Lucca Iron Chandelier, search for similar pieces at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, or Urban Outfitters.
- Don’t overlook outdoor furniture when creating your Pottery Barn-inspired decor. Check out Restoration Hardware or Rejuvenation for high-quality outdoor furnishings that will last for years.
- Keep an eye out for sales and clearance items at your favorite home decor stores. You may be able to score some luxe decor pieces for a fraction of their original price.
- If you’re looking for a modern twist on the Pottery Barn style, consider incorporating some items from West Elm or even Ikea. These stores offer a wide range of affordable decor items that can elevate your space.
- Finally, don’t forget the power of accent pieces like vases, shelves, and baskets. These small decor pieces can add a lot of character to a room without breaking the bank.
In conclusion, creating Pottery Barn-inspired decor doesn’t have to cost a fortune. With some savvy shopping and a little creativity, you can achieve a high-end look on a budget. Whether you’re shopping at high-end furniture stores or discount outlets, there are plenty of options available to help you create the home of your dreams. Happy decorating!

Hi Cheryl, thank you so much. I used the heavy duty “picture frame” command hooks – https://amzn.to/2HAtbVS They work kind of like Velcro.
Like it better than the one from pottery barn
You are so sweet Kathi, thank you so much 🙂
This is so pretty Chas. I wish I had a place to put one of these. Build a new house??? LOL
Thank you and love that Linda – thanks for the laugh 🙂
cool idea…what is gaffers tape?
Thank you Sheila. Gaffers tape is a super strong tape – https://amzn.to/2IYtM2X
I was looking for mirrors at our Dollar Tree 2 weeks ago and we didn’t have these or any others I could use. : (
Hi Beth, you can ask them when their next shipment might be and see if they’ll hold them for you. You can also order them in a set of 12 online from Dollar Tree. If you don’t love those options you can definitely look at other stores like Walmart, Target, etc for some. Hope this helps 🙂
your directions make it so easy to do ,it looks great, thx for showing how it looks both horizontal and vertical !!
Thank you Ida, and I’m so glad you like it 🙂
Thanks a lot!!! I have been wanting a large wall mirror for my living room for a long while but could not afford the price. You are so sweet for sharing your idea with us! Dollar Tree here I come! I love dollar tree!
Awe, thanks Annie. I’m so glad you want to make one too! Please send me pictures when you’re done. I’d love to see it 🙂
Wow! I am truly dazzled, Chas! I have long loved that Pottery Barn mirror and would never have thought of doing this–really, I’m dazzled! Pinning.
Thank you so very much Jean for the nice comment and Pin 🙂 I’m so glad you like it.
This is so stylish & what a great DIY for the home. I will be featuring this in my 16 Stylish DIY Home Decor Ideas at Merry Monday on Sunday at 6 pm pst. Hope to see you at the party!
Thank you very much Jenny for the feature, I look forward to joining Merry Mondays this weekend.
We are in the process of buying a 50 year old house and I could not decide what to put on one of the walls…until I read your post. After some remodeling, I’m making a mirror like this! Thanks so much for this inexpensive mirror idea and instructions. I love it!
Oh thank you so much Patti and I’m so excited you want to make one too! Congrats on the new home!!!
Very cool! I think I will make one of these for my bedroom.
Thank you Claudia, I’m so excited you want to make one too 🙂
Very resourceful. An expensive look for $6
Thank you Cindy 🙂
Your creation looks way better than the original. Talent*****
You are so kind, thank you Sunny
This turned out great! I really like it better than the one from Pottery Barn.
You are so sweet Patricia, thank you so very much. These mirrors matched the decor in the room better for me too.
Did you put a hole to hang with a Heavy duty hook
Hi Carol, there isn’t a hole. The picture frame Command Hooks work like velcro. You stick the velcro parts together and then peel off their backs. One side sticks on the back of the picture and the other side will stick to the wall.
Wonderful results. I like yours more than the Pottery Barn inspiration! Happy New Year, Kippi
Thank you so much Kippi and that is so very nice of you to say! Happy new Year!
It turned out beautiful! I have seen a lot of things like this on YouTube, but it always seems like they would not be very sturdy. But you definitely took the extra steps, and now I want to make one!
Thank you so much Cherryl and I’m thrilled you’re considering it. It’s been on my wall for quite a while now and going strong 🙂
Absolutely brilliant and it shows what an absolute rip off most of these shops are
Thank you so much Molly – it’s so satisfying to create something beautiful for a whole lot less money.
What a clever idea, you’ve saved a fortune!
Thank you so much Julie, I just love it.
OMGoodness! I. love. it! That would work so well in a dark or small room. Thanks a heap. This is so inspirational.
Thank you so very much, you are so sweet. I just love mirrors and how they can brighten a room and make it look bigger.
I LOVE your mirror . It is so much nicer and elegant than the other you copied. This is a priject I will do fir our hallway. Thank you for your creativity!
Thank you Karen, I’m thrilled you want to give it a try 🙂
I just realized that I never updated my comment here. I did find a place to put one where it looks perfect. Thank you so much for the instructions, I love the way mine turned out. 🙂
Thanks Linda, and this is the Original Pottery Barn Mirror Hack, I have done a smaller version and if I remember right you did that one. I love how it turned out and thanks for sending the pictures.
True, Mine isn’t exactly like this one. I made one to fit my space. 🙂 I still love it!
