Comfortable Monday, y’all! 😀
Did you might have a very good weekend? We positive did! We even completed up that DIY mission I informed you about final week. It was impressed by this mirror from Ballard Designs:
That one sells for $549, which was about $500 over our finances, so I made a decision to see what I may whip up for $50 as an alternative. Right here’s what I got here up with:
Step 1: Buy three ($5.88) door mirrors from Walmart:
Step 2: When you had to purchase pink ones as a result of they have been out of black ones (like I did!), tape off the mirrors and spray the frames black:
Step three: If the pink coloration on the underside of the body continues to be reflecting on elements of the glass…
…use a small paint brush to the touch it up:
Step four: Scrape off the surplus paint when it dries:
Step 5: Chop 9 items of trim molding:
Step 6: Spray the backs and entrance of every piece:
Step 7: To create the window pane impact, use E-6000 to attach the 9 items of trim molding to the mirrors, utilizing scrap wooden “spacers” to maintain the trim items straight and evenly spaced aside:
Step eight: Connect heavy responsibility, double-sided foam tape to the again of every mirror:
Ours was Scotch model “Outside” tape made to carry up merchandise that weigh as much as 15 lbs, and every of our mirrors weigh 5 lbs.
Step 9: Stick the three mirrors to the wall utilizing a board or degree to verify they keep straight.
Be aware: Every of our mirrors have been a *barely* totally different dimension, so we ended up lining ours up throughout the highest (vs. the underside) as a result of that’s the sting that’s most seen.
Right here’s the *virtually* completed product:
To imitate the form of the Ballard Designs mirror, I’ve obtained one thing arched up my sleeve this week, so I’ll be again on Friday to point out you what I’m including to the highest! 😉
