Geometric Mirror DIY

Today, I want to show you a mirror I beautified myself.  I have had a love for all of the geometrical mirrors that I have seen around lately like these:

But, I just don't have the kind of money to buy one like this from Horchow:
$450.00, are you crazy.  I need to buy at least two much needed chairs with that kind of money.

I'm always looking for a "Look 4 Less" type of thing like this from Home Decorators.

But, I still can't seem to afford it either, lol.

So, this is what I came up with...

I turned this boring mirror:

Into this:

My house is very dark so here's another after pic:
(wow, it's so hard to take a pic of a mirror)

I found my inspiration in this pic from Anthropologie:

Can you see how they are on the same idea?  I just changed the circles to squares.  But, the Anthropologie mirror costs $648.00 (oooch)  and mine cost about $12.99 for the mirror from Target and maybe $10.00 in supplies.  Not to bad for less than $25.00 I must say so myself!

Here's one last look, side by side, of a completed mirror and an incomplete mirror...

Tomorrow, I'll show you how I did it.
