Hello
again from Boxwood Clippings!
Today we’d like to share how to
make these cute little mirrors that would look great anywhere in your
home.
Emily really
wanted little mirrors for next to her entryway, but couldn’t find any
small enough or within her budget. So, we headed to the craft store.
We
picked up these wood
plaques
and these beveled
mirrors
from Hobby Lobby with 40% off coupons.
Em wanted her
mirrors dark brown to match her front room, so we painted them with this
Behr
paint
left over from another project.
Then we
simply attached the mirror to the plaque with a command strip and used
another one to attach to the walls. No nails, wood glue or husbands
required!

The
finished project:
These
mirrors took only a few minutes to assemble and cost less than $5 each.
We’re envisioning different colors for rooms throughout our houses as
well as making them for gifts. We hope you like them too!

We are sisters whose goal is to have it all…balanced, organized and beautiful lives on a tight budget. Join us on our blog, Boxwood Clippingsfor daily tips on design, organization, bargains, DIY’s and much more

    I love the wood bevel plaques – I bought one from Hobby Lobby with a wooden "S" and plan on making a monogram for our last name to go somewhere in the house. Easy, low-cost and personalized! Great project!
