Friday Flair Link Party // Feature Edition No. 10

Friday Flair Link Party // It's Friday, Friday, Friday… Not only is it Friday, but it's my favorite time of year! When we moved into our new house a few weeks ago, we were blessed with the previous tenants bountiful tomato harvest. She had planted a few tomato plants in the yard and they have been prolific! I've been canning homemade salsa like mad. Hopefully I will have a recipe to share next week sometime. I am also sharing a fun recipe over at Pillsbury for a TASTY Fried Chicken Sandwich with Pineapple Slaw

One day, with the help of my 3-year old nephew, the frame became completely detached from the mirror part. They were both still in-tact though so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try to build something. I found this post at Shanty2Chic so I followed her tutorial but like I said… it took me a little longer. Mostly because I was waiting for things to dry and hunting down the tool I didn’t realize I needed until I needed it. So I geared this tute for beginners like me, listing every tiny thing you might need. Stuff you need: cheap mirror 1×3 boards miter saw or miter box and hand saw measuring tape wood glue loaded staple gun wood filler (just in case!) sandpaper paint or stain gold spray paint for “dipping” painter’s tape liquid nails & caulk gun (here is a great video on how to use one if you never have) *if you are staining rather than painting the first layer you will also want one or two clean rags that you don’t mind ruining… Step 1: Separate cheap mirror from cheap frame. I was fortunate enough that my mirror and frame were already broken apart which is what inspired the project in the first place. This post explains how to best remove one. Step 2: Measure and cut your boards. Since you want it to fit your mirror perfectly, measure your mirror. Mine was 1′ x 4′ so I cut two pieces 14″ 3/4 long point to long point and two 48″ with the ends at 45 degree angles. I’m not going to lie, the sawing was more difficult than I expected and I had to ask my husband to help me with it. Using the basic miter box and hand saw will take two people, one to hold the box and board steady and one to cut. Step 3: When your four pieces are cut, lay them on a flat surface with the sides you want to be the back facing up. Use wood glue to glue the pieces together, and then staple them in place too. It’s best if your staples are at least an inch from the inside so that they don’t get in the way when it’s time to glue your mirror on. Let it dry. It may look perfect, but in my case, there were a couple gaps that I wanted to fill in so I used wood filler. Step 4: Prep for staining or painting. Just in case you are a staining newbie like me: wood glue will not stain, so you need to make sure you sand any remnants of wood glue down before you begin. Wood filler however, will stain. So there you go. Stain or paint your frame following directions on the package. I used this stain in espresso (got it at home depot in a super small container) and left it on for 15 minutes. Let sit for a few hours. Step 5: Use painter’s tape and newspaper tape off and cover the part of your frame that you don’t want to change from your original color. Leave only what you want “dipped” exposed. Step 5: Spray paint gold. Let dry for at least an hour. This Rust-oleum gold spray paint is my favorite. I’ve tried them all but I think this one is the classiest. Step 6: Lay frame facing down and apply liquid nails right around the inside edges of your frame. Carefully lay the mirror over it, face up. Let dry. Step 7: Admire your new mirror that you totally built yourself! Ooohhh. Ahhhh.
