Rustic Wooden Mirror

I love this mirror because every time I look at it I am reminded of the day Greg proposed to me!

He used the mirror as a prop in the proposal and now we have it framed and hung up in our living room!

The mirror was in the box decorated with pictures and a poem.  I turned around and BAM!  Greg was on one knee proposing with a sparkling ring :)

The frame is made of 2 by 4s from a pallet and the mirror is held in place by the channels cut with a router. The pieces are screwed together with drywall screws on the side corners.  The mirror is hung with eye bolts and picture hanging wire through the bolts.  And the wood is stained with Minwax "Early American" - my fav.

For some added fun we strung up some twine and hung some postcards from our favorite spots in San Diego!

  1. I love the stain of the wood! Totally looks like something people would pay big bucks for in a store! Great work!
