DIY Mirrored Art….PB knock off

In the kitchen aisle of Homegoods the other day I spotted these… I bought 3 for $7 each…
It is a large wired bowl…something you may put fruit in….but I reminded me of these…
From Potterybarn…. (theirs are $79….for one mirror…um hum……you know me…I don’t play that way)
 So, I decided to create them with some craft store mirrors ($2.50 each) and some glue…
 I cut out a piece of felt to protect the wall where it would be hanging…and also to had something to grab a hold of for the glue. I used liquid nails…and some crazy glue too.
 I placed some weight on them overnight to let the glue set up good.
These are going in my friend Patti’s new retreat….
The big reveal….coming next week :)
I love it when I get the look of $240 from pb….for only $29 :) It is a serious THRILL!!!

    I agree with the other comments. You totally rocked PB out of the game with your version. I bet they start copying your designs next :) (I plan to myself "BIG GRIN".
