DIY Metal Ring Mirror

Share this post

Last week I shared my guest room update with you.  It was a bland blank space that needed some livening up.  I chose to use white bedding and curtains and perk up the space with metallic accents.  My favorite part of the room is a DIY Metal Ring Mirror.

I was inspireded by the cover of the latest HGTV magazine. Check out this beautiful Golden Ring mirror from Pier 1 .

This statement peice retails for $199. Not bad for a substantial piece but not in the budget for a quick, non-essential, room makeover.  I headed to Hobby Lobby and picked up supplies to make my own, for under $20!

Supplies to create a metallic metal ring mirror for under $20

Here is what I used:

7 metal rings (six 12″ one 16″)

16″ round mirror

Metallic spray paint

Gorilla Glue Epoxy

Copper wire

I found these rings in the needle point aisle, they come in different sizes.  I chose a 16″ mirror and laid it on the floor of the aisle then played around with the rings to see which size I liked.

I spray painted the rings with a metallic copper paint.  Once dry, I used thin copper wire to attach the rings to each other.

Once all the rings were secured to one another I used Gorilla Glue Epoxy to attach the center ring to the mirror.

This dries clear and holds strong.  I mixed the compound and spread it around the outer edge of the mirror.  Then I placed the ring on top and piled on a whole volume of encyclopedias.  Clamps are recommended, but that wasn’t really possible with this setup.  After an hour, I had a solid piece.

I am in love with this DIY Metal Ring Mirror!  It catches your eye as soon as you walk in the room and breaks up the big blank space on the wall that used to be there.

I'm going to have to have metal rings just on hand. I feel like you could do so much with them!

I love this! I like yours way better than the Pier 1 version! The bigger rings look better to me. I love the Krylon color too... I may have to get it for a project I'm working on for the hubby.
