the perfect addition to my porch floral decorations.
One of my "BOSSES" supervising my work~
I used shims from Lowes and layed them fat to skinny ends and glued them to the plywood using wood glue around the mirror in the middle..Then I stained the mirror with about 4 different stains I had in the garage to give it a weathered look..cheap and relatively easy project. Would make a great gift or you could even transform it into a smaller picture frame. (this was about 3 feet by 3 feet in size if not larger)
My loving husband was out of town during this crafting frenzy...I am now banned from mirror making unless I sign an agreement that it will be given away or sold asap.
I use home made buttons on my purses and bags I sell on Etsy so I thought they would make a great mirror design/decor. After dulling on compound miter saw blade I had this beautiful mirror (or atleast I think this 50 lb mirror is beautiful like all moms think their baby is the cutest ever!)
yes I have saw horses, yes I am lazy and decided to use the recycling bin that was next to me...probably not the safest way to do this scroll cutting...but...I'm still alive with all fingers, toes and eyes fully functioning.
Good use of a drawer full of "good nights"/corks. (don't judge my massive collection that was in need of use to make room for more) I super glued the corks to a wreath and wrapped it with burlap.the burlap hides any imperfections with strategic placement.
With more left over corks I took a wooden cut out of our Inital and super glued corks with wine stained side facing out. Makes for great wedding or birthday gifts!
