Mirror for the dining room project:
We wanted a nice sized picture frame mirror, but between low quality and the high cost to get good quality I got tired of looking around. So I went to the local big-box store and got a 2’x3’ plain glass mirror and 12’ of solid pine wood flooring. The inside groove of the flooring piece fit the mirror perfectly. I cut the angles with my circular saw and stained the pieces with a cheap stain. I fastened all the back corners with some peg board I had left over. Only problem is if the mirror breaks then it will be a pain to replace it since there’s no real backing. Although the total cost of a custom, wood framed mirror = < $45.00, so I can’t complain.
