Do It Yourself // Captain's Mirror

7:00 AM

Slowly making progress on our bedroom makeover! When I stumbled on this pin, I knew I needed a captain's mirror. The prices for pre-made were nowhere in my budget, but knew it was a doable project on my own. I found this video with a step by step, cost effective way to get the job done. This is simply done with an Ikea mirror ($35), three belts (found all three on sale at Gap), spray paint and hot glue. Follow the link above for more info! 

PS! I finally made a VSCO grid. You can check it out here and pin whatever you like!

  3. That looks amazing! I've been looking for mirror ideas for our bathroom and this is perfect. It looks so simple too.

    1. Simple and SO easy! If you do it I'd love to see your result! :)

  4. Thank you so much for sharing the link to this tutorial! I've been wanting to do a cock version of a captains' mirror. My husband bought me a huge round clock and I was just waiting to find some cheap belts to create the hanging look. However I wasn't fully sure how I was going to actually put everything together. I love the use of the actual buckles. Perfect.
    Once again thank you!! YAY!

  5. This looks so elegant, I'm thinking I might try it for the wall above my dresser. Just a question, what did you use to spray paint the frame? It looks like you did black on the outside and then gold/bronze on the inside?
