small space d.i.y.
make your own honeycomb collective mirror


















:: My photos take you through this easy project ::


I have a great mirror small space D.I.Y. for you guys today that I did in my own home a few weeks ago. It took me under 2 hours and about $60. Mirrors are one of my best small space accents because they really open up a space. I have tons of mirrors in my home from traditional mirrors to mirrored tables to mirrored vases - all in an effort to make my small space appear larger then it really is. 

I hauled this wood palette home a few months ago and placed it on top of my mantle. I wasn't quite sure what to put on here but knew that it needed a mirror to help open up the room a bit more. I really love the honeycomb pattern but didn't really own anything with it so when I spotted these new mirrors at Ikea, I thought they'd make a very cool project. I taped some free cardboard together and then placed the mirror in the pattern that I liked (there's 10 of these guys in a box for about $15). I bought a picture hanger for $10 and nailed it into the palette and used Goop to attach it to the cardboard and hung it on up. Done and done.

I really love how it came out. The mirrors are two-toned with an amber glass and a silver glass. I like that I created my own thing, it kinda looks artsy (maybe?? :) and it was something that I wanted - honeycomb. This type of project is the most special kind since I really created a piece in my home that I love and that makes me smile when I see it.
