I have been on the hunt for a cute, handheld bathroom mirror that matches my master bathroom style. Well, the ones that fit the description were too expensive. So I decided to make one by embellishing a very inexpensive mirror that I found at the dollar store. While at the dollar store I also found some tiny, artificial flowers that I knew would make the perfect base for my mirror. I used some spray paint and craft glue that I already had, and voila my cute mirror appeared!
I believe the end result for my two dollar mirror is so adorable. It reminds me of the vintage, enamel pins that are having a huge comeback with the granny chic decorating movement.
This project is also a great reminder of the power of spray paint. As you may know from my Instagram stories, I love thrifting. Spray paint is a wonderful tool to keep in mind when you are browsing thrift stores, estate sales, or secondhand shops because a little spray paint can transform a dated, uninspired piece (as witnessed here).
I hope you enjoy this very customizable, simple, and inexpensive tutorial to turn a mirror from drab to fab for less than ten dollars.
