Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Ta da!!

When we I thought our living room needed an update, I thought we needed a mirror over the side board. We went round and round on what size, what kind, what shape…and then it hit me. I wanted a barn wood mirror. Specifically old barn wood that we found ourselves in Montana. And because I’m married to a carpenter, I get what I want (well that and I’m pushy…).

We got the barn wood this summer and PW and compromised on a taller, horizontal rectangle. He spent an entire day plotting out how to cut the wood that we had which was all different depths, slightly different lengths and with a lot of character to be preserved. He is most proud of the little dowel that was stuck in one of the pieces.

One thing we didn’t account for is how freaking heavy it is. Thankfully with several different heavy weight hooks, a lot of swearing and some luck, we made it happen. Thank you for being so good at this stuff PW!

    Love it! I saw it leaning against the wall when we grabbed Baylor for soccer and I thought…is that what I think that is???? Well done Wands!

      Hi Jasmine! Thanks for reading 🙂 WE used a standard picture wire screwed into the back of the frame and then two heavy duty hooks. It’s about 60lbs – we used two 50lbs hooks, just to be safe. Good luck!
