D.I.Y: Fabric matching mirror

For my second tutorial I'll show you a project I made about two months ago.
The mirror is perfect for my bedroom, which still need a touch of color (Yes! More projects to come!).
This tutorial is really really easy.
My mirror was already painted in white, so make my decoration was even easier.
If you don't like your mirror color, simply paint it before starting (Oh, oh... captain obvious is here!)

So, let's get started!

What you need:

  • a mirror (you won't say, will you?);
  • a permanent marker of your choice;
  • some scrap fabric or wrapping paper with a simple but nice design.

Simple try to make the same shapes you find in the fabric onto the mirror frame with your marker.

You don't have to be worried about being precise or good at drawing.

Here are some useful tips:

  • select a simple design;
  • try to copy the fabric shapes disposition too (shapes will go easily well together);
  • if you make a mistake, simply change the shape (nobody will analyze your mirror frame with a magnify glass)
  • you may also doodle around and see what happens (maybe a random design will fit better with you room).
You may both cover all the mirror frame surface or leave some sides as they are. It's up to you.
My mirror has a little decoration on the right top corner and is much more covered with shapes in the left and bottom sides.
It's a matter of taste.

When you think you're done, hang your mirror to the wall and enjoy your reflection!

  1. Very cute mirror! I love the black and white pattern. I'm a sucker for damask and paisley prints, so this is right up my alley.

    P.S: I love your header and button, super cute with the theme of your blog.
