  • How to make a wall mirror. Diy Herringbone Floor Mirror - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start with your oversized floor mirror which we found at Lowes for $25. Then take two or three 2x4's (depending on the dimensions of your mirror) and cut them to size to surround the mirror, cutting at 45 degree angles with a miter saw.

    Using a table saw, cut grooves into the 2x4's at 1/8" x 1/2" to slide the edges of the mirror into.

    Then after securing each of the four corners with wood glue and screws, sand down all the sides.

    At this point you can choose to stain & poly your mirror frame, or paint it in whatever style you'd like. I chose a herringbone pattern similar to the West Elm design, which I painted using blue painters tape.

    After painting on the navy blue herringbone design over white, I wanted to slightly mute the boldness of that navy color. I chose to whitewash the entire face of the frame using a whitewashing tutorial I found on Pinterest.

    After letting that dry, I then stained the outside and inside edges of the frame with natural wood stain so it was a nice, light color. The one coat of varnish - and we're done!
