Creating a Faux Mirrored Window With IKEA Mirrors
Start by laying out your mirrors and frames to form a square or rectangle shape. You can use as many mirrors and frames as you need to fill your space. Once you’re happy with the layout, glue the mirrors onto the frames and let them dry.
Next, use wood strips to connect the frames together. Screw the wood strips onto the back of the frames, making sure they’re securely attached. Finally, use wall fasteners to hang your grid mirror on the wall. And that’s mostly it. You can make it as big as desired, since the mirrors are rectangular, and they can be arranged in any direction, depending on the wall you want to cover.
