11 cool diy mirror ideas


Provided by Networx.com

Any room looks good with the addition of a mirror. Mirrors reflect light, and can stand in for art if properly framed. Mirrors work in any kind of decor, modern or rustic. There are applications for small mirrors, and for large mirrors. Of course, mirrors can be pricey. I recently shopped for a full length mirror, and ended up upcycling one that I found in my folks' basement, as brand new full length mirrors were expensive! 

One of the great things about DIY mirror projects is that you can often find super inexpensive mirrors at your local thrift shop or swap shed. It doesn't matter much what the frame looks like, as long as the mirror itself is intact and free of scratches. Crafting a new frame is where the creative fun is. These eleven DIY mirror ideas should spark your imagination. They were all posted on Hometalk.com by DIY bloggers who love to share their great ideas. Have fun!
