We consider an optical cavity made by two moving mirrors and driven by an intense classical laser field. We determine the steady state of he optomechanical system and show that two vibrational modes of the mirrors, with effective mass of the order of micrograms, can be entangled thanks to the effect of radiation pressure. The resulting entanglement is however quite fragile with respect to temperature.
