Pottery Barn Inspired Mirror

2 Hours

Have you seen these mirrors? I love them and want one but holy cow! $209 and up for these and that is just not in my budget. I created a Pottery Barn inspired mirror using Dollar Tree mirrors.

Here is the picture of the original at Pottery Barn. Do you see the price?!!!

I started with 6, 8x10 mirrors from Dollar Tree.

I pulled the mirror out of each frame and set it aside.

I painted each of the frames with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Silver Shadow. I dry brushed it on, and used a chip brush. This would help give it the farmhouse look I was going for.

Once all of the frames dried, I set them in the shape I wanted. I replaced all the mirrors back into the frames.

I then used E6000 to glue all of the edges touching together.

I placed gaffers tape over all of the creases and the diagonally making an "x" for added reinforcement.

I hot glued on a piece of foam core board cut to size on the back. Now the piece was nice and solid.

I placed picture hanging Command Strips in each of the 4 corners so that I could hang the piece up on the wall.

I hung the piece in my entry way and think it makes a nice statement (and at a fraction of the cost).

    I am not into the farmhouse look. Any ideas how to make it look contemporary? I imagine I could keep them black, but I would like some dimension to them. I love black, gold, brass..... What do you think about a dry rub of gold on the frames? I think gold leaf would be too much. Thanks for any suggestions. I appreciate it Faye

    I have an idea. Is there a way to remove the mirror finish off of the mirrors? I've seen projects of faux windows at the end of a hallway. With strip lights on the inside looks like a real window. This would be a very cheap way to do that.
