I've learned that a well-placed wall mirror can have a dramatic effect on the overall aesthetic and atmosphere of a living space. The kinds of metallic, sleek, and ornate mirrors that adorn the walls of interior designers and celebrities' homes have been popping up on the shelves of Home Depot and Pottery Barn in recent years. However, I find that the price tag for these can be a little steep, ranging from around $80 to $500.
I'm a firm believer in the idea of high fashion home decor being available to anyone, regardless of their budget. That's why I thought this kind of large wall mirror would be a perfect project to recreate at home on the cheap. For less than $10 I was able to get together all of the tools and materials needed to create a bold metallic wall mirror that wouldn't look out of place on the set of Empire or Dynasty. If you would like to see how I did it, so that you can try it for yourself at home, read on to find out!
