A DIY wall of mirrors can change the look of any room by adding light, movement, size, and reflection. We spent a little bit of money and created a wall of mirrors that changed the whole look of our entry foyer, stairway to the second floor, and dining room.
I have been thinking about filling up our blank stairway wall for a while but just wasn’t sure which direction to go. When I saw a DIY wall of mirrors on the Thistlewood Farms blog, I knew that was it. In fact, when I decided to do a DIY wall of mirrors, I spent just a few hours going to four thrift stores, and I found all but two. I’ll show you how I fixed the needy one in another post.
The other two I purchased new at Hobby Lobby – one with a coupon and the other on sale for half price. My friend Beth Harper (The Lone Rearranger) helped me put the wall together once I had bought all of the mirrors and cleaned them up. Beth started out by lining up the orange and gold mirror to the ceiling light that hangs in the foyer, and hung it. Then through trial and error, we randomly selected the largest mirrors and hung them. The first mirror going up the stairs and the little round one with the gold frame are the two I purchased. If I had been hanging them on my own, I would have laid them out in a grid on the floor to decide where to put each one.
