How to get a designer looking mirror for way less cost!

I love love love the look of these mirrors but I was positive I could find a way cheaper way to make one on my own.

so let’s do this!

I started off with this mirror that I found for $58

I absolutely love the size of this one, honestly you can use any round mirror for this project.

Next I found these wooden rounds (without holes)

I have seen so many people using the wooden round balls with holes in the for projects but then they have to fill in the holes and I didn’t want any extra steps so finding these rounds were perfect. And as a bonus they had all different sizes, I decided to go with the 1.5 inch and I was going to keep them close together but u liked the look of spacing them out much better.

I lined them all out on the floor first to see what I liked best.

It seems that my dog also had to give her opinion 😆

Now I originally started this project using some left over liquid nail from a previous project, but once it dried it was not strong enough and the balls would fall off.

So I reached out to a friend and she told me to try using hot glue and a bit of E6000

and it worked like a charm, so I went back through and fixed each one and then let dry completely.

Once everything was dried I decided to paint it all black 🤦🏻‍♀️ I should have bought the black mirror to begin with, oh well.

I am so half with how it turned out and it was way cheaper than buying one finished.

This makes me want to give my eyelash room a little bit of an update 😉

what do you think, will you try this one?

    Just saw one of these in a catalog for $$$ and am happy to see this because I want one for my granddaughter’s room.

    How did you calculate the spacing of the balls so it ended up even?

  • I have added these wood beads before and they fall off if touched using hot glue, so next time I'll add the E6000 too! So pretty, I love the black!
