Mirrors are one of the most versatile assets in a room, especially if you know how to decorate it. They’ve been used for many other things other than looking at your reflection, from distributing light and making spaces seem bigger to brightening up areas of the house that don’t have enough windows.
It can get quite expensive to buy designer mirrors, so if you want to give your space some character without breaking the bank, you came to the right place. Here are some neat DIY ideas for transforming your mirrors into fabulous accent pieces.
