I love the Gleaming Primrose Mirror from Anthropologie, but not the price. Rather than spending the money, I thought I would try my hand at a DIY makeover on a second-hand mirror I found on Kijiji. I could not find the right size, but liked the shape of this one, so I took the bold step of also resizing it. I have never cut glass, so I thought this project was doomed for a Pinterest Fail, but I was happily surprised at how it turned out. Best part - it cost a tenth of the one from Anthropologie!

Resizing the Mirror
Glue and staple
I used a combination of solid and flexible decals - solid for the top and flexible for the corners. Flexible decals are great for giving the impression of carved wood. They work best for corners, sides and curves. I used Eflex for the corner decals on this mirror.

*Tip – many thin coats are better than fewer thick coats.
Place your mirror in a place for all to see!
