Hey guys! I’m back to share the super cute Mirror that you may have seen hanging out on top of my DIY Console Table last week!
I started with a piece of scrap Purebond Plywood that I cut down to 46″x17″.
Because it was a scrap from another project, I used my Kreg Jig Rip Cut to cut the scrap down. This is the perfect tool if you don’t have room for a table saw or if you aren’t ready for the purchase. It just slides on to your circular saw and it’s only $31 on Amazon right now (prime) with free shipping. I’ve shared the link below! If you don’t have a circular saw or scrap plywood, no worries! Just purchase a 2’x4′ 3/4″ thick panel at your local hardware store. They can even cut it down for you there 🙂
I used my Ryobi Airstrike Nailer to attach the 2 17″ boards to the top and bottom of the plywood panel. These are flush with the ends of the plywood.
Then, I added the 2 41″ pieces to the sides of the plywood, also flush with the edges. Next, I nailed on the final 12″ pieces. I put the bottom one 14.5″ from the edge of the plywood and the top one, also 14.5″ from the edge.
Time to add a finish!
I used my Ryobi Corner Cat Sander to prep the wood for stain. I just ran an 80-grit over the whole piece, really quick 🙂
I applied one-coat with a clean rag, let it dry for about 5-minutes and then wiped it with a clean rag. Don’t wipe the stain off, just use the rag to blend it. You can see in the picture above, rich the stain looks when you apply it. It’s our fave stain because it does go on so rich in one-coat and it dries in an hour!
We always appreciate your shares and pins!
