How to Make a Faux Window

If you want to make a room look bigger, there are a few things you can do. I chose to make a faux window using a wooden frame I got a local store. Then I went to a glass company to add mirror panes to fit the frame. While I had already seen this idea on the internet a couple of times I was afraid it wouldn’t work out as nicely as it did for other people but I decided to put all fears aside and went through with it!   
When my frame was ready and the mirrors had been added to it, I hung it on the wall. My living room did look a little bigger and it also helped with the lighting. Before I hung the faux window the room was very dark because it did not have enough windows and even though this was not an actual window it did brighten up the room. Don’t ask me how, but it did.

After a few days I decided I wanted to do something extra. I thought it would be great if I could paint on my faux window and make it even more decorative. I am not an expert at painting so I went for something simple: just a small tree and some flowers. I accept it doesn’t really look professional or anything but I like it. In addition, it’s something unique that nobody else has so I can say that I am truly happy with the results!
