I know you've seen these shim mirrors all over blogland, but they're all so different and unique.
I wanted mine to be a little more "unique" and random.
I started by staining my shims in my favorite minwax stain, dark walnut.
(yes I was
lazy frugal and only stained the front side of the shims!)
I got to work laying out a pattern of short and long shims. There's really no rhyme or reason to this, just place the way you like.
I used Gorilla glue to glue it one my cardboard circle. I then glued my beveled edge mirror on top and put some paint cans on it to dry.
I had a few options of where I wanted ot hang it. But after seeing a few people on pinterest hang theirs on shutters, I thought I should try that!
What do you think? I have another place for it, but I thought I would try it here! Here is what it looked like before, and now after!
Which one is your favorite?
