3 Make a Colorful Leaning Mirror

Make a Colorful Leaning MirrorThis screams whimsical Boho style and it's calling out my name. If you want to make one for your home, you will be needing a frame-less door mirror, wooden boards, paint in several lovely colors, and wood stain. The first step is to construct the backing to which you will mount your mirror. You then add your colorful strips and wood stain to give the boards a more beautiful look. Let dry and attach the mirror using wall-mounting clips.


4 Add Storage to a Full-length Mirror

Of course, making a mirror with side storage is even more fantastic. We could all use extra storage for the overwhelming number of jewelry that litter our dressers.


5 Add Gold Leaf Paint

Painter's tape should do it. If you can't find gold leaf paint, some normal metallic variety should work for this project as well.
