DIY Grid Mirror - How to Make Your Own
My sister-in-law just asked me today how I made this, so I decided I should write a blog post to let everyone know how I made this diy grid mirror.
I wanted a grid mirror, but they are SO expensive, so I decided to come up with my own way of making one.
I hope this step-by-step tutorial helps my sister-in-law, yet also helps all of you!
Materials - DIY Grid Mirror
Step 1 - cut board for grid mirror
I used particle board for the back of my mirror, however, you can use whatever board you feel like using for the back of your mirror.
I cut my board to 61″X24″. Make sure your board is big enough for how many mirrors you want on it.
I found 18 mirrors at the Dollar Tree.
Step 2 - glue the mirrors on
I used hot glue to attach my mirrors onto my board. One fell off like a month later, so I would probably use a more heavy duty glue that holds up in colder weather.
Step 3 - add the boarder/trim
I wanted thin wood and I couldn’t find any that I liked in my budget, so I got this lattice wood and then used the table saw to cut it in half.
Because I cut it in half, I only needed 18 feet at the store.
Again, I used hot glue to attach the wood, however, please use more heavy duty glue, this was a mistake on my part.
Make sure you sand your wood for a better look and feel.
Step 4 - Add boarder around the whole grid mirror
I got 1X2s and added a boarder to the whole mirror.
Over a year ago, I hardly took any pictures or videos during the projects so I did not get a photo of me doing this, however, you can see what I did in the end picture.
That is all I did. If you wanted to, you can stain your wood or put a finish on it, I did not.
Here is the finished product!
Guys, I am just so excited how this turned out! Instead of spending a ton on a mirror like this, make one! You can do it!
