Last week, I shared with you the details of how I made over my master bedroom furniture with spray paint. If you missed it, head back here to see the before and after pictures.
Speaking of before, here is one of the before pictures of the room.
See the wall on the far right of the screen? It was dying for something to fill it's space. Pretty sure the house was staged with a leaning mirror (it was a model) and then the people who owned the house had a leaning mirror there, so I thought for sure, it needed a leaning mirror. The power of suggestion? I think so.
I spent tons of time searching for a leaning mirror and man, those things are pricey! Every one I found cost anywhere from $500-$800...out of my price range! The few I found at the big box stores weren't quite big enough.
I sent it to my husband with the hopes that he could make me something like it for WAY less. He set to work, and here's what he came up with.
It's anchored into the wall and leans out just a bit
I think it's pretty massive (3 1/2 feet by 6 1/2 feet) , and pretty awesome all at the same time.
The grand total for the wood, paint (yep, same spray paint as we used on the furniture), and mirror cut at the glass cutters was around $150. Pricey, but way cheaper than buying it at the store.
Plus, I get the bragging rights that my hubby made it with his own two hands!
