How to make a geo accent mirror

Geo accent mirrors are so trendy, but they can cost a ton of money if you buy them from the store. They're surprisingly easy to make yourself if you know what you're doing.
This cute mirror will match almost any style of decor, especially if you coordinate the paint color, although you can also keep it neutral. Once it's finished, you can admire your reflection in the new mirror.

Materials
- 2 pieces of 1-by-1-inch wood 12 inches long
- 2 pieces of 1-by-1-inch wood 11 inches long
- Ruler
- Wood glue
- Square mirror
- Painter's tape
- Acrylic paint
- Small bowl
- Paint brush
- Super glue
Instructions
1. Measure the pieces of wood and make sure they're the right size.
2. Apply wood glue to both ends of the smaller pieces of wood and place them inside the larger pieces to create a square frame. Set the frame aside to dry.
3. Carefully attach painter's tape to the mirror to form three V-shapes spaced slightly apart.
4. Squeeze paint into a bowl and apply it to the mirror from the top of the painter's tape to the base of the mirror. Make sure to completely cover the thin lines created by the tape.
5. Once the paint has dried, peel off the painter's tape to reveal the geometric pattern.
6. Use super glue to attach the mirror to the wooden frame, offsetting the mirror to create an eight-sided star shape.
