This is a project I’ve been meaning to share for a while. It was inspired by a mirror I saw in the Pottery Barn catalogue that I loved but was a tad overpriced. It proved to be an easy DIY and very affordable.
Here is how I did it with supplies from Home Depot. I purchased a 4′ x 8′ piece of plywood and had them cut it to 4′ x 5′ and used it as the foundation. My other purchases included 4 boxes of 12″ x 12″ Mirror tiles (6 to a box), adhesive, and a package of brass nailhead tacks.
It was a simple process of applying the adhesive to the back of each mirror tile and placing them on the plywood. I used 20 tiles, but you could easily adjust the size larger or smaller according to your needs.
Using wire cutters, I cut the nail part off the tacks and glued them where the corners of the tiles met.( I only needed 12). I framed it with decorative molding (already on hand) that I spray painted gold. From there it was just a matter of securing it to wall.
Usually I do all my posts on a huge Mac desktop using Adobe Photoshop. This week, while I’m out of town, I’m working from my Ipad, and frankly I’m not very good with mobile devices, especially for blogging. Please bear with me as I struggle to get my posts up. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook where I will be sharing some my adventures in Atlanta.
I like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint for my craft and furniture projects, but for walls nothing compares to Pure & Original Fresco Lime Paint. I love the natural variations of shades and tones the lime creates within one paint color. You have to see how gorgeous it is! Checkout my most recent interior design make overs with Fresco.
