Inspired by, but nowhere close to cstrang’s work.

Took down a large ugly full width mirror in our masterbath (8’-3” long) built two individual mirrors, simple mdf painted white for the bathroom, and this one out of poplar for the guest bedroom.

planed the poplar down to about 5/8” as lowes 3/4 stock is never 3/4. chamfered all edges and used pocket holes to join, shelf is just set in a dado with glue. Mirror is set in a rabbet and then used a hardboard back to hold in place, probably would have used something similiar to what I saw on the wood whisperer this week, but that just aired. He used hard wood cleats.

Finish is krylon citrus green.

Not fine woodwork, but as nice as the store bought target mirror in our hall, plan to make a matching coat rack.

thanks for looking

I’ve got the long ugly mirror in the bath as well and will need to replace it once I get to that project. Thanks for the idea, and nice work Paul.
