I have to tell you, that I am one lucky girl! For V-day the hubby planned on making me a full length mirror for our bedroom:) Since I was a busy bee shopping away yesterday, I'm just now posting about my mirror.
We decided that it would be lots cheaper if it was DIY mirror versus buying one in the store. These mirrors can run anywhere from $100-$200.....EXPENSIVE!!!! I believe the mirror that the hubby made was $50, so this was a really good deal:)
|Here it is:)|
Things needed for this project:
-Mirror - 16" x 60"
-3 1 x4's boards (they are 4" wide by 8' tall)
-Stain - in this case black
Step 2: You will need to use a table saw and cut a notch along the sides of the boards. This way the mirror will fit right into the trim.

Step 4: Nail the boards together.
Step 5: Stain the frame to your liking:) Make sure you stain the notch also. The hubby forgot to and you can kinda see it on the bottom of the mirror, not too nocitible , but you can tell.
|All put together, stained, and ready for the addition of the mirror:)|
I love my new mirror!!!
|Doesn't it look lovely in our room?|
Until next time!
