How To Turn A Cheap Mirror Into Rustic Beauty – DIY On A Budget
How to add wood to a cheap mirror for only $15.
I went to Gales True Value Hardware to pick up the supplies I needed, including the wood. They cut the wood for me, right on the spot. This project is simple and easy...until you break the mirror before application.
I have to go back to the store and buy a new $5 mirror because I pushed too hard while wiping off excess liquid nail adhesive. So, heed my warning, don't push too hard on the mirror or it WILL break.
What You'll Need
- $5 Mainstays mirror
- 2 - 48inch long 1x4 wood boards - length measured at the tip (Gales True Value Hardware will cut the wood for you)
- 2 - 17 and 1/4th inch wood boards - length measured at the tip
- Elmers Glue wood glue
- Liquid nails adhesive
- Staple gun
- Stain (optional)
Gales True Value Hardware did an amazing and quick job at cutting the wood for me. I invested in a reciprocating saw but to cut a perfect line, I would need a circular saw. You choose the wood and they will cut it for you right on the spot.
