This wall mirror is the same design complimenting the cheval mirror frame of the previous post. This time, thinking financially, I went to Lowes and bought one of their framed beveled wall mirrors for about $40, and using my vets discount saved a ton of money over having a glass co. make up a mirror from my specs. I took it out of the Lowes frame then made the frame to fit the mirror. One thing I didn’t realize was that chatoyance (a french word meaning how light or shimmer is reflected back from the grain pattern in the wood) might make it look like I used different boards on the different sections. It doesn’t look anywhere near as pronounced without the bright light from the flash. I think if when I was cutting the pieces for each section, with the sections in a pile, I must have cut out the sections with the bandsaw not thinking it mattered which side I drew the pattern on. Live & learn. Because of the angle of the flash in the 3rd pic, the true appearance of what it looks like on the wall is more obvious. Quite different from pics 1 & 2.
