DIY Potterybarn Eagan Mirror.

DIY Potterybarn Eagan Mirror.


My goal was to get this chrome looking EaganMirror from potterybarn get a half inch plyboard from your local home depot/lowes and have them cut to your specification cut moldings using a miter saw to make a frame. use mirrors as template to cut small moldings
in between frames. once everything is cut, glue moldings to the
plywood using nail glue and clamps to set them. glue rosettes in between frames. I actually nailed them to with nail tacks
and glued gem stickers on them of each rosettes one everything is set, you are ready to paint. the wood is too porous and the paint is looking more like gray than chrome ๐Ÿ™ Mikayla told me her honest opinion that it looked fake. ๐Ÿ™ the chrome paint did not really look like
chrome and blended on my gray walls so I decided to repaint it again using oil rubbed bronzed spray paint and copy this other Eagan mirror gave it 2 coats. and after the paint was fully
dry, I glued all the mirrors inside the window after the paint was fully dry, I glued all the mirrors inside the window pane frames using E6000 glue. to give the frame a little bit more dimension,
I got some gold metallic paint and dry brushed it around the frame and the rosettes. and tada! Mirror looked just like Potterybarn’s Eagan
mirror.

    This is by FARRRRR the best DIY of that mirror that I have seen. I just wish there was a break down of cost and materials needed with an actual tutorial. But, that's just Me.
