Have you seen the grand hallway at the Palace of Versailles in France? It is ornate with gold everywhere, large mirrors line the hallway reflecting light that streams through the window. It glows with brilliance. Making use of mirrors in your home to add light is one of the easiest things to do. Megan from Its A Grandville Life saw an elegant mirror at Pottery Barn and decided to make one herself after seeing the $700 price tag.
She found the supplies to make this mirror within her budget of about $70. She used coupons at Hobby Lobby and bought the rest of the materials at Lowes.
Megan explains in her detailed instructions that they had a small issue with the mirrors which impacted the overall construction. Although the mirrors were sold as 8″ x 8″ mirrors, some of them measured a bit smaller. Due to the way they inserted the mirrors behind molding, this had to be addressed. You will want to pre-measure your mirrors prior to construction. Depending on the space you plan on using your mirror, you may choose to make a smaller version, or a larger one.
This project will be fine for a beginner as there are a minimal amount of materials, and cuts can be made with basic tools. The mirror will add light to a room and work well in any decor from modern to traditional.
