I was shopping at Ikea one day looking for their cheapest wall hanging mirror for my minimalist vanity in my bedroom. I wanted the smallest, sleekest, and cheapest mirror I could find. I didn’t want anything fancy or overdesigned. But what I did find were a few mirrors with awkward prices and sizes that wouldn’t work in the space I had in mind (and of course, there were a ton of 5 feet long decorative mirrors that were all sold out). Frustrated and hopeless, I ended up making my own DIY Mirror Stand.
