Shim Mirror

This mirror was pretty easy and cheap to make. Most of the stuff I had on hand. I only had to buy shims.



Supply list:
mirror
shims (2 packs at HD)
mdf back (I had this circle from another project)
wood glue
stain

Start glueing shims to the mdf board.

Glue some more

start layering the shims and glue some more.

Layer some more and fill in the gaps. I had to use paint cans to keep it all together.

After the glue dried, I stained the beast with walnut stain.

Attach some hanging hardware on the back. Also glue a mirror onto the front... in the middle.

Hang on the wall...

Step back and enjoy!

I made a similar mirror from shims and a Dollar Tree mirrored candle plate! Turned out awesome for only $4!
