Some of you probably know I am a DIY addicted. I get inspired by taking window shopping(without kids obviously) around home decor stores like Pier 1 Imports, Home Sense and Pottery Barn, but their price tags sometimes give me a mini heart attack.
I just love these “Eagan Multipanel Mirrors “available at PB website but their price range is $400 -$ 1000+, depending on the size and style. I would never ever pay this much for a mirror(even won’t accept it as a gift) that only for decor purpose. I know people buy such things at this super expensive price-tag and I don’t have any issues (with other people) but when I can make a similar version(not exactly obviously)which make me happier then why would I be breaking my bank?
(SO sorry for bad pictures just because I made this last year and captured all pictures from my Tablet).
This is one of the projects that I loved more than original inspiration after it is done. I spent around $50 for this DIY.
BaseBoard: I got from Home Depot
Bevelled Mirror/Candle Plates: 25-30 (depending upon size) I bought from Dollar Store, You can find similar at Any craft store or Walmart.
Industrial Grade adhesive: I prefer E-6000 over Gorilla glue.
Cut the baseboard the desired size i.e 20*25, I measure the size by putting mirrors on the base and trim the excess wood off. I put four mirrors on each horizontal row and set mirrors in five vertical rows.
Use E-6000 on the back of each mirror and carefully glued it to the base. Leave it overnight put some weight ( but not very heavy that breaks the mirror), I used the mild weight like plant pots, some wooden light-weight items
If you like you can use the back of any large frame but make sure the baseboard/frame has to be thick enough to hold the weight of mirrors. (You just need to be sure what are you using since mirror has weight but on other hand, are delicate to handle, can be broken easily.)
Isn’t it so easy? I put this beauty on my server which stores all my dinnerware and dishes. I will make another one soon for my basement (needs a makeover) but a different version for sure.
You can either hang on the wall or even use it like me, it is beautiful, isn’t it? I got so many compliments from my guests. I even stained this second-hand MCM server/buffet (I love this piece of furniture) and painted these cool green lamps, both are garage sale/online auctions finds. Want to know the detail of this makeover??
If I tell you that everything on this server is either I painted or my thrift/garage sale find. don’t ask me the price, it will give you a real shock..lol…want to know more just let me know…;-)
