DIY Knockoff: Make your own decorative mirrors

Don’t you love a good DIY knock-off project? When I saw Roeshel’s trio of DIY Convex Mirrors, I couldn’t believe how ingenious they were. On the hunt for a trio of convex mirrors, Roeshel shopped around and found several options. But, rather than spend hundreds of dollars, she made her own trio of convex mirrors for about $60. Lucky for us, she shares her tutorial on The DIY Show Off.

Roeshel will show you how to make your own decorative convex wall mirrors on her blog The DIY Show Off.

First, Roeshel shares a few of her original inspiration mirrors. While she liked this trio of PB Found Parat Mirrors, they weren’t the convex shape she really wanted. And, they were $89 each.

These Pottery Barn mirrors weren’t quite what Roeshel had in mind.

Roeshel admired this one from Lamps Plus, but not the $105 price tag.

The mirror from Lamps Plus was big, but so was its price tag.

And so Roeshel got to work, creating her own concave mirrors, right down to details like this beaded trim (made using a necklace – so clever!).

Roeshel used a gold necklace to create the beaded trim.

Here are the finished beauties in Roeshel’s living room.
