Kylie from Absolutely Arkansas created what she calls “the world’s easiest DIY” when she made this pretty mirrored vanity tray. All Kylie did was glue drawer pulls onto a five dollar frame from Wal-mart. Yep, it’s that simple (and cheap)! Kylie says, “I absolutely love how many uses you can get out of this simple [...Read More]
Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs shares how you can create a custom 3D mirror from scratch for only $15-$20. Wanna know Sarah’s secret to making a high end mirror on a low cost budget? Mat board!

Lauren from Bless’er House had an old wooden mirror stuck in storage that she decided to tackle using a DIY Restoration Hardware finish. Like many of us, Lauren has always drooled over the RH distressed finish but says she never has had the guts to try it for herself – until now! She is in [...Read More]
A few years ago, Maryann from Domestically Speaking took an inexpensive IKEA cabinet and turned it into a beautiful piece for her daughter’s room. I actually had the very same inexpensive IKEA cabinet she transformed and I am seriously blown away. Sadly, my cabinet did not survive four moves and is now long gone, but seeing Maryann’s awesome makeover makes me wish I could get it back!
I hope you enjoyed revisiting the most popular Pottery Barn projects featured over the past few years here at KOD. Today we are going to go a little starburst mirror crazy with two different DIY versions. The first comes from yours truly! I really love the classic look of these mirrors and decided to join the ranks of DIYers who have made their own. However, like I share at Infarrantly Creative, I think I’m the only crazy person who sanded and stained 150 shims to get the job done! Yikes! Trust me when I say that the end result totally makes it worth it though!
After her daughter’s wedding, Jeanie from Create and Babble found herself with several clear glass vases on hand. She decided it was time she jumped on the mercury glass train and grabbed her can of Looking Glass spray paint. Now we’ve all seen this done a time or two, but I love how Jeanie took it a step further by creating a pattern on the glass with glue. You’ll have to pop over to her site to see exactly how she did it!
As shared on Dollar Store Crafts, Debi of Debi’s Design Diary knows how to get that Anthro-look on a dollar store budget. Debi created a very cool geometric mirror from paint can lids and mirrors that cost… you guessed it… one dollar! Some gold spray paint, and Debi’s mirror looks like a million bucks instead of a budget-friendly $25!
Heather from Dollar Store Crafts shares how you can create a Pottery Barn inspired mirror for only $10. Sounds pretty good, huh? But wait… there’s more! It also requires no tools. Heather attached together small framed mirrors from the dollar store (of course!) with duct tape and glue to create a larger multi-panel mirror. It doesn’t get any cheaper than this for a generously-size mirror! Plus, you can easily customize the size of your mirror by adjusting how many mirrors you use.
