Another trip to the antique stores. Found a few old knobs to mount around a new mirror.
Beveled mirror from Walmart.
Milled live edge cedar frame.
Logs from the forest for a shelf.
Four coats of polyurethane.
Rustic style mirror…..................

Very creative, I like it. When I saw the title, my first thought was “why does one need a mirror in the shop?”

That looks like it fits your shop like a glove! Although my first thought was the same as Bingham… very cool

I’ll get to the mirror in a minute but first, a red anodized diamond plate receptacle cover ??? Is this nascar meets victorian plumbing with rustic flare ? I LOVE IT ! The mirror is strangely appealing but balanced also. Some beverly hill’s designer would pay truck loads of cash for that.

Pretty darn unique, the old time hardware has its day in the sun again…......I wonder if this would fit in a porta potty?
