Herringbone Mirror

Herringbone Mirror This pattern is a classic. And if you want a mirror from West Elm with this design, be prepared to shell out around $300. Crazy, right? If you go the DIY route, you will spend less than $10, especially if you no longer have to buy the mirror. And if you already have a nice herringbone fabric in gray and white, you will spend even less than that.
