Things you can do with mirrors


You probably already know that mirrors not only create light in a room, they can make a space appear much larger and full of energy too. However, you may not know that there are a lot of creative things that you can do with mirrors, other than just hanging one on your wall!

Cover a Table

Yes, this may seem like a bit more work than what you’re looking to invest but the result is dramatic! You can buy self-adhesive mirrored tiles that are less expensive than you might think. Paint that old table you have stuffed in your garage a color that will match your decor and then apply the mirrors to the top. If they don’t fit perfectly, just be sure to measure so you leave the same amount of room all the way around as a border. It’s easiest to start with the middle row in this case and work outward.

Wall Art

You can hang mirrored panels in any pattern you choose across a wall. You could create just a small abstract piece on that short wall in your entry way or spread them out across an entire wall in your living room. If you’re feeling really creative you can paint a design on some of them or stencil on just a bit of detail.

Create Planters

There are very inexpensive, unattractive, rectangular planters available that you would normally paint but instead of painting them, you will add mirrored tiles to them. Once again, feel free to add a bit of paint to the mirrors for a splash of color.

Just because it is ideal to have mirrors throughout your home doesn’t mean you have to give up prime wall real estate just to hang them!

    I am in love with those planters. Most planters look, well, Mom-sy and country. Adding mirror is a great chic touch! Thanks for the inspiration. Chic Rooms
