Hanging on the wall or leaning on the floor, mirrors are a great addition to your room decor. But they of course do more than just look good — they help you see if you look good, as well as function to reflect light, making our rooms feel brighter and even expanding the feel of our spaces. But, sometimes dramatic or modern versions cost a lot to buy. Save some money and personalize your space by making one of these DIY ideas.
