Keeping it Simple: Chevron Mirrors

Chevron Mirrors

One of my favorite things that I made for my craft room are these chevron mirrors.  I love how they turned out and how they look on the wall.  They added to a wall that was very boring and full of doors and gave it more color and life!

This is how I made them:
I took some mirrors that I got from Ikea.

Using my Silhouette Studio, I used a chevron background.  I measured the frame and made it the same size as the frame .  Then I measured the mirror and made  a square for the inside. .

I cut the chevron out of grey vinyl.

Using transfer paper, I transferred the vinyl to the mirror.

This part took some time, making sure it was all lined up.  Then I taped off the mirror.

I spray painted the whole thing green.

Once it was dry, I carefully peeled off the vinyl and then removed the tape.

And that’s it!  I did the same thing for the blue one but for the grey one, it just has vinyl.  I wanted it to look a little different than the other two.

Cute! I've been waiting for this post! But I am going to have to find a different way to do mine because I don't have a Silhouette. Any suggestions??

Very pretty! I think I will look for some Chevron scrapbook paper or fabric with my handy dandy Mod Podge to get a similar look... thanks for sharing!
