DIY Vintage inspired mirror 1.0

Plan B a n n a · e v e r s DIY Vintage inspired mirror.

 

Spring is here and we all want to renew, change and update our home … It just seems that ur pockets don’t want to follow our good intentions. That’s why I love to do DIY low cost decorating projects.

With only about 5€ I made a mirror to decorate the living room, the entrance of your home or a special room. Definitely a super easy tutorial but with a spectacular result. This piece is inspired by vintage wall mirrors that are so IN at the moment.
