Wood Shingle Accent Mirror

Categories: Decor, DIY Projects, Featured, MirrorsTags: , , , , , , Author:

Alberto and I really loved how the Wood Shingle Christmas Tree came out, and we wanted to do something else with the leftover shingles. We thought of the mirror set that we got last Spring (which we used to make the Sunburst Mirror in June) and decided to make another decorative mirror for the house.

As we started shingling the plywood, it started looking even better than we’d hoped! Consequently, it became more and more difficult to decide where in the house we would place the mirror…the dining room, family room, the bedrooms? It looked amazing in each room, but once we stained it, there was no question where it would go. We had the perfect place in the dining room, and it will be one of the first things people see when they walk into the room…perfect! Read more →

We found a great little table at a local yard sale a few months back. Someone had converted it into a futon by putting a cushion on it. Alberto saw it, and immediately came up with an idea. We could glam it up by adding a mirror to the top and transform it back into a side table for the living room! Read more →

Sunburst Mirror

A couple of weeks ago, we made a party wreath inspired by a mirror that we saw in Madrid. We really liked the mirror and wanted to recreate it at home, but weren’t sure what we’d use to make it. But last Saturday, it all came together in (where else) Home Depot!

We were walking through the plumbing section, and Alberto saw decorative metal panels that are generally used for home radiator covers. We immediately thought about using them for the outside border. All we needed now was the small mirror for the center and we found it at Target, as part of an inexpensive set of round mirrors. This project was much easier than we thought it was gonna be, and it makes a GREAT addition to our house! Read more →
