DIY Idea: How to Make Your Own Color-Trimmed Mirror

created at: 04/24/2013

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the coolest of them all? Well, you of course.

Er, yikes… sorry about that one. But! This simple idea really will transform your – otherwise boring – full-length mirror into a legit accent piece, and it’s super easy to pull off.

Taking into consideration that you already own a full-length mirror (if you don’t, there are many affordable options out there), you’ll only need a few supplies for this project:

  • A can of your favorite neon color
  • A paintbrush
  • Old newspapers

Get it done: cover your work area with newspaper. Paint your mirror’s trimming with neon goodness. Let it dry. Boom! That’s it. Place it in your hallway or bedroom and earn mad cred.

If you really want to make the whole thing from scratch; you could get a frameless mirror, add a trim of your liking (or even use some reclaimed wood boards), and follow the same steps mentioned above.

TIP: Wanna go even more minimal? Paint it all white!
