DIY: Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Give your reflection a happy hit of color and pattern
Combine two trends—hot colors and funky florals—in this romantic, painted mirror (we chose a gold frame for a bit of luxe). Treat it as artwork and hang it in a prominent spot, like above a console table in the foyer, or nestle it in a private corner, like on top of your dresser table. Just don’t look at it too long!
How long this will take: One afternoon
- Medium-sized mirror
- Quick-drying acrylic paint
- Fine paintbrush
- Wax pencil
- Old newspapers
