Maybe it’s your first apartment and you are stoked about it. No matter how small it is, you love it because it is yours. And with planners drowning in ideas, there’s no way you’re going to let that tiny budget stop you from turning your shoe-box sized bedroom into a dreamy abode. Or maybe it’s your dorm that you’re trying to decorate. It is tiny, lifeless and monotonous, but that poster you bought on a sale is only going to make matters worse. So DIY some Paris inspired wall art and make a couple of signature throw pillows. But if your place still lacks that ~bling~, it’s time to DIY this nifty Framed Mirror Tray.



Drawer pulls


Spray Paint
Remove the glass and backing from the frame and clean it with a damp cloth.

Put two light coats of spray paint, giving each enough time to dry completely.
Place the drawer pulls on the smaller sides of the frame and fix them in place using thumbtacks. (Make sure you get the pulls and thumbtacks in the same color. The tacks I used were silver and after I spray painted them, I realized they didn’t get the same sheen as the pulls.)
Replace the glass with a mirror of the same dimensions.
Mirrors help to animate little spaces and make them look roomier. Placing them strategically can help you make your place look brighter.
So think of a few spots that need more light and add this 10 min DIY mirror tray to your decor.

    If you're using basic thumbtacks to hold the pulls in place, is that going to hold?
