15 DIY Vanity Mirrors For A Custom Look
Whether you’re looking for a lighted, makeup vanity mirror or a unique bathroom vanity mirror, it can cost more than $100, and you may not even get the aesthetic you’d prefer.
Instead of relying on retailers, consider making your own vanity mirror. You can upcycle a discarded mirror at a thrift shop, install lights around your existing mirror, or create something totally unique to your needs and style.
This is about as basic as it gets when it comes to lighted vanity mirrors, and it’s super easy to do!
All you need to recreate this look is your existing mirror and some stick on globe lights. Thats it! No electrician needed.
If you love the look of a lighted mirror but want something big, consider a full length version.
A string of rope led lights can turn a basic full length mirror into a Hollywood dream.

She was able to find everything she needed on Amazon and got a gorgeous end result.
