Anthropologie Mirror Dupes (and an easy trick to hang your mirrors)
Hi, my name is Jenna and I have an addiction to mirrors. Back in the day, I was never able to commit to art (I’m also very indecisive) so I found myself just buying mirrors for my walls. Fast forward 15 years later and I’m still hoarding mirrors.
And if there is a mirror to drool over, it is the Anthropologie Primose Mirror. This is the mirror of all mirrors, the mirror all the other mirrors want to be.
It’s also the mirror you see all over Instagram And the mirror that can cost more than someone’s first car. So naturally I have been on the hunt for some dupes.
And did I find some really good ones. So much so, I bought yet ANOTHER mirror. Seriously, it is about to look like a fun house over here.
But I digress…
Anthropologie Mirror Dupes
This mirror comes in different sizes and with different finishes. And with over 300 five star reviews, it’s a good one. It’s dimensions are narrower than that of the Primose mirror but who’s measuring?
This mirror is nothing but gorgeous and is the closest to the real deal as they come (and for a fraction of the price). It’s a tad bit shorter than the Anthro mirror but for under $300 it’s worth it. The Anthro mirror this size is close to $1,000. Yes, that is what I said.
Obviously you know which one I would be picking.
This is the mirror I just bought with absolutely no place to put it. Go ahead, ask me if I care. It is so pretty and such a great price (especially for it’s size). This little lady would look so good on a mantel or hung on the wall.
Come to think of it, maybe I will put it on my mantel…which means I need to move the mirror already on my mantel.
Too many mirrors and no place to put them!
Another good dupe but with smaller dimensions. But again, for the price savings, I’d go smaller in a heart beat. And we have another fan favorite with reviewers.
This mirror is definitely more ornate than the other ones but how dang good would this mirror look over a sideboard or on a mantel?? The answer is really good. It reminds me of a gorgeous mirror I saw in Jenna Sue’s house
(And doesn’t Jenna have such a nice name? She must be pretty cool like me)
I like this mirror for it’s simplicity. it’s not too ornate, but not too boring either. The dimensions are great too.
Another horizontal mirror that would look good over a sideboard (or on a mantel). The dimensions on this mirror are really good too.
This is such a pretty mirror and reasonably priced for Pottery Barn. I do find that sometimes items are a little cheaper on Pottery Barn teen than actual Pottery Barn so always look there too.
Once again, smaller dimensions but still just as pretty and a tad bit less ornate than the Antrho mirror
This is a great mirror if you want something a little less ornate but still Anthro inspired. Great reviews and a great size so that makes it a no brainer!
I just picked up this mirror the other day and it is so good. They have a few different sizes of this mirror but this size was perfect over my chest. It was so inexpensive too so I had to grab it.
Easy Trick To Hang Mirrors (or anything really)
I wrote a similar post on how to hang a mirror the easy way years ago so this might look very similar if you ever read that post.
Any by similar, I mean I literally copied and pasted the whole blog post right here. (I once had a boss that used to tell me to work smarter and not harder. This is one of those times.)
I found the cutest mirror at Target. It had no choice other than to come home with me so he did. I had no idea where I was going to put him. I played a game of eeny meeny miny moe and I found the mirror’s permanent home in our kitchen.
(Remember when I said I had a mirror hoarding problem? I wasn’t lying)
I had a mirror hung there already so I was able to cheat a little and use one of the existing screws I had in the wall already. The process will be the same if you are starting with nothing already on your wall.
The first thing you need to know is that not all hooks that are attached to the back of your mirror/art are always level. You will want to make sure that the hooks are level. Don’t skip this step.
Luckily for me, my hooks were level. If yours are not, do not fret, you will just need to make a few extra steps.
Grab yourself some painters tape and put it across the hooks on the back of your mirror/art like so.
Make sure the tape is evenly placed on both hooks. Get a pencil and put a hole (or just a mark will work too) where you want the screws to go.
Remove your painters tape and put it up on your wall where your mirror is going to hang. Make sure your tape is level on the wall.
Now, if your hooks are NOT level on the back of your mirror, you will want to mark on your wall where you want the top of your mirror to be. Measure the distance from each hook to the top of the mirror and use those measurements to put your painters tape up on your wall. Make sense? So your painters tape will not be level on your wall since the hooks aren’t level. Once side might be 5 inches from the top of the mirror and they other side might be 4. Just depends on where the hooks were placed. You will skip the next step I’m about to mention.
As an extra step (but will save you some time if you goofed) I like to get a few nails and lightly nail them into my wall where I marked on my painters tape. For this example, I only had to add one nail since I was using one of the screws from the last mirror I had hung up.
Now get the your level and make sure the nails are level. If they are then you are good to go. If not, you will need to adjust. But at least you won’t have a huge hole to patch. Mine were level.
And now all that is left to do is add in your anchors and screws and hang your bad boy!
So easy! And no crazy measuring needs to be done.
