I have always loved fancy looking mirrors shown in catalogs and home decor magazines. The problem for me has always been the cost of owning such pieces. A mirror is perfect for just about any space though, because it has an amazing ability to open up any room and make it appear larger. On top on that, it can brighten rooms by reflecting light. If you are looking to add something special to your favorite parts of the house but would rather make a custom piece yourself, here are 16 DIY Mirror Tutorials to inspire you to create the perfect one.
