DIY Mirror ~ Pallet Art

Happy Friday!!!  As promised, I’m back to share how I made this super cute mirror that I have on top of my DIY Floating Ledge!

DIY_Projects_edited-1It was SOOO easy and quick!  And, it only cost me about $25!

Here’s how you can make one for your home!

MirrorI started with this mirror that I found at Target for about $19!  They still have them but if you can’t find one, any mirror shape will do.  You may need to adjust your measurements when you make your cuts, for your pallet, though!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Measurements_for_PalletI love the shape of the mirror itself but thought that it would be so pretty mounted on a stained pallet!  I lucked out and found the scraps I needed in my garage!  I cut 3 – 1×4’s at 25.5″ and 2 – 1×6’s at 25.5″.

Don’t have a saw?  This hand saw is the perfect saw to get small jobs, like this pallet, done!


Kreg_JigI used my good ole’ friend Kreg Jig to drill pocket holes into 4 of the boards.

Kreg_Jig_Pocket_HolesAnd, I drilled 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws in the pocket holes with my Ryobi 18-volt Lithium drill.

Rust-Oleum-Early-American_thumb1Next, I gave my pallet one beautiful coat of my favorite Rust-Oleum Early American stain and let her dry for about an hour!

back_of_mirrorI decided to have the mirror hang on the pallet from the center metal piece, on the back of the mirror.

How_to_attach_the_mirrorAfter marking where I wanted the mirror to hang, I drilled a 3/4″ screw at that spot.

DIY_Mirror_edited-1That’s it!  For REAL!  How easy is that?  You should be able to finish this at nap time;)

    ⭐⭐⭐I LOVE MINE!!! I built my own using the plans at www. WoodworkPlans.info – highly recommended you check those out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha

    LOVE this, 1 question though is what are those things on the back of the mirror? Also if they need to be attached then how?

    Oh, I am so excited! I have some mirrors like this and I didn’t know what I was going to do with them. I also have a kreg jig. Now, I’m off to look for the boards in the gagrage. Thank you for this super cute idea!
