DIY Mirrors With Intriguing Shapes And Designs

Mirrors are some of the most versatile accessories a home can have. Mirrors always have a double function. On one hand they reflect the environment surrounding them and we often use that in our favor, making a room seem larger and brighter than it actually is or just for checking our own image in the mirror.
