While strolling through the Annapolis mall recently, I came across this amazing mirror at Pottery Barn. The Eagan Mirror collection is absolutely stunning and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your style. They start at about $250 and go upwards to $700.
At soon as I got home, I hit Pinterest to see if I could DIY it! Sure enough I found several bloggers who had all the instructions I needed to get started.
I'm going to link you up here to the YouTube video I used. The instructions are super easy. Once we got started, it only took about 45 minutes from start to finish. This video shows a small mirror, but as you can see, the one I made is large -48"x36".
Here is what you need-Total I spent was $47.
Plywood - cut in your desired finished size. Mine is 48"x36"
Beveled Mirror Tiles (I got mine at home depot-Glacier Bay 12x12 tiles)
Glue - E6000
Silver Craft Paint Pen/Foam Brush (I got my paint at DickBlick.com)
1. Use paint pen/brush to paint the side and edges of the plywood. This way if your mirrors don't go all the way to the edge, you will not see the unfinished wood. This is not on the You Tube video, just something I came up with to be sure you could not see the plywood.
2. Glue the mirror tiles to the plywood using the E6000. I had my husband help me because I wanted to be sure they were perfectly straight.
3. Use heavy books to sit on top of the mirrors. Wait 24 hours until the glue is totally try.
4. After drying is complete, add hooks to the back and hang in desired location.
