17 Cute Mirror DIYs That Will Make Your Dorm Look Awesome

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? That would be you, girl, but it’s also your mirror, too. Well, it can be after you DIY it.

Finding the right mirror can be a challenge. I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced that some of the “regular” mirrors you can buy are more like fun house ones thanks to the way they stretch and shrink you. And just when I get a mirror that I’m happy with, I realize that it’s too short to reveal my full outfit or that I have to look really close up if I want to be able to see to put on my eyeshadow. Ugh.

It’s an exhausting search so when I finally find a mirror that I like, I’m usually not too concerned with what the frame looks like. As long as it does its job, I’m happy. However, I’ve recently changed my tune after scrolling through Pinterest and seeing the easy ways you can upgrade a mirror.

If you have a good, functional mirror, you can turn it into a good, functional, and pretty mirror with some easy and affordable DIY projects. Take a look (huck, huck) at 17 easy DIYs to make your mirror look pretty from all angles.
