DIY Standing Mirror


Stef recently moved into her new industrial looking condo space. Excited to express her own design style, she is eager to find new original items for her home. Stef is a gamer and wants to incorporate her dark mystical, witchy side through modern + vintage items. She loves warm wood, old vintage coca cola signs, retro/bizarre decor and mystical pieces such as healing stones + crystal balls.


Stef wants a large floor mirror for her living room that will not only be functional but aesthetically pleasing in her space. She wants to her incorporate all her dark design themes and add shelving so that she can display plants and decor items with it.

I’ve seen a few standing mirror options around the internet but the one that’s always drawn my eye is the plywood standing mirror that allows for shelving to be incorporated with it. It becomes one unit that packs a lot of personality and functionality into a space!

To give it the vintage personality Stef is looking for, I’m adding some beautiful ornate mouldings to the tops and corner of the mirror and spray painting it black. As a fun touch, I’ll dry brush some touches of gold onto the ornate pieces and make this the mirror of her dreams.

Mirror Mirror On the Wall, who's the best DIY of them all?! MINE IS!
