DIY Ornate Gold Mirror

Share

Mirror, mirror, leaning against the wall … you do know that you’re the fairest of them all, right?

Aside from their obvious (and very helpful!) function, mirrors add a decorative depth to a room that I, as an interior designer, find irresistible. The effect of a large, ornate vintage mirror is Pinterest perfect for a boho glam room like this one, but those mirrors themselves can be tricky to track down at a reasonable price! With this DIY, any full length you find can be transformed into the most majestic mirror in just a few steps! Check it out!

Prep It:

Full length mirror
Millwork pieces
Gold paint
Paintbrush
E6000 glue

Do It!:

  1. Paint your millwork pieces and the frame of your mirror gold. You can use gold paint and a paintbrush, as referenced above in the Prep It section, or, for a more even finish, some spray paint.
  2. When all of the painted pieces are dry, glue your millwork around the frame with the E6000 glue. Feel inspired to glue some pieces onto the mirror itself, like I did here! As long as it looks decorative and beautiful, and doesn’t obstruct your mirror’s function, it’s all fair game.
  3. Let the glue dry, then prop or hang your mirror up and enjoy its gilded beauty!
