This dowel mirror was inspired by one I saw online. When I saw the price, my jaw dropped! I recreated it for a fraction of the price and I’m so excited to share it with you! It is really simple and only requires a few things.
I needed a full length mirror in my room. After I created this mirror, I decided to leave it in my entry way because it is that pretty! I’ve received so many compliments on it. People don’t believe me when I tell them I made it myself
I received some free product from Rustoleum to create part of this project. All opinions are 100% my own!
What you need for your Dowel Mirror
You’ll start by spraying your dowels. You don’t have to do this, but it will make it easier to hide mistakes you make with your glue!
Then you will glue on the dowels. The key to this is using very strong glue. Obviously you are suspending a mirror, so it is important you know you have a really secure seal. I researched for the strongest multi surface glue and this was the best option I could find. Before I set it up I made sure it was completely dry. So far it has held up really well!
The glue I used dried white so I went over the parts that had seeped out the sides with some more spray paint. I got some spray paint on the mirror and it ended up being really easy to clean up with this simple trick. I sprayed the mirror with window cleaner and used a straight age razor and it came right off!
This was seriously so easy, saved me a ton of money, and I love the look of it! What do you think?
