DIY- IKEA UNG Drill into a piece of art for any room

The UNG Drill Mirror/frame are really popular items from IKEA. You’ve probably seen it on many TV shows like Pretty Little Liars, The Secret Circle (so sad it got canceled.) and etc.

When I first came across the UNG Drill I fell completely in love with it. It went perfectly with my room and everything! The only thing that was holding me back was the price tag at the time ($30, which doesn’t seem like a lot but if I wanted to personalize it, the costs would add up.) Over the summer (or before then I’m not entirely sure) IKEA dropped the price to $20. About 2-4 weeks ago I went to IKEA with my cousin because she was going to buy the UNG Drill Mirror for her makeup vanity. I decided to pick it up as well. But the thing was I didn’t need another mirror but the frame went with my room so nicely, I couldn’t resist! So instead it lay on the floor for a couple of weeks until I came up with this idea which is quick and easy.

Supplies used:

  •  UNG Drill Damask mirror from IKEA $20
  • Damask wrapping paper from Michaels $4.19 ( with coupon, regularly $6.99)
  • Cardboard (using the packaging that came with the Mirror)
  • Glue ( bought a 10 pack of Elmer’s glue stick during the back to school sale for $3.50)
  • Scissors

Grand total: $24.19

Overall, I’m so happy about how it turned out, and can’t wait to get started on the other one. I’ll be doing   a room tour soon, when my room gets to where I want it to be.
