I’ve been in my apartment for two years now and left most of my room undecorated, focusing on the rest of the place instead. I needed something to hang over my bed and have been intrigued by antique mirrors, like these:
But the prices are just not within my budget. And while in Ikea, I spotted this lightweight frame ($29) and bought it for a quick DIY. This was so simple and was just the thing I needed above my bed. While I like it as a frame, I could always buy or spray a faux mirror later on.
Skill Level: Beginner
Time: 5 minutes +15 minutes drying time
Backdrop for spray painting
I removed the glass from the frame and simply sprayed one coat. It was dry within 15 minutes.
I reattached the glass & hung on the wall. Easy, peasy. I love how the muddled silver and swirls are echoed in my purple & silver bedspread. The frame also compliments my photos from Paris in their silver frames. Do you DIY?
