Katie of Little House of Four made this farmhouse mirror from a... wait for it... $1 stove burner from Dollar Tree and an inexpensive beveled round mirror from a craft store. She has a series of dollar store DIYs that are worth checking out.

If you've never been to a 100 yen store (the Japanese equivalent of a dollar store), then you are in for a treat. Up to Date Interiors created this decorative mirror using cheap supplies—feathers, faux flowers, and hot glue—she found there.

The tabletop you see here is actually a dollar store clock, inverted and mounted on hairpin legs. It was created by Megan Simonson, after she watched a video tutorial from The Sorry Girls.
