Hey there! I just put together this mirror in about an hour and it only cost me $15!
I love the simplicity to it! Here’s how you can make your own:)
Now this is the part that is very important. The trim will come off very easily and without cracking the mirror if you pull it away from the mirror. Do NOT try to bend it away from the mirror from front to back. Just pull it away.
Now for the frame:
If you have never owned a saw, this is the perfect tool for you to purchase!
It is a Miter Box with a hand saw for only $7.98 (you can purchase at your local hardware store)! It will make this project so easy and it is the perfect starter saw if you are interested in building!
I purchased 2 1×4 white wood boards and cut down 4 pieces with 45 degree angles at each end to build the frame.
2 @ 48″ (long point to long point)
2 @ 1 7 1/4″ (long point to long point)
This was the fun part for me because it was soooo easy:) I flipped the boards over so that the bad sides were showing and glued the frame together with Gorilla Glue wood glue. To keep them together while the dried, I used my staple gun (purchased years ago at Hobby Lobby). It worked like a charm!
After the glue was dry, I flipped the frame over and stained it with Rust-Oleum dark walnut stain. I let one coat sit for about 10 minutes!
For the final step, I attached the mirror to the back of the frame with Liquid Nails (I applied the liquid nails to the back of the frame (edges closest to the middle) and laid the mirror on top of it). A little goes a long way.
I decided to prop it up next to my Pottery Barn Inspired Media Console
If you love this I would LOVE your pins;)
