Thrift Store Wood Slice Mirror Makeover
I was making over my bathroom and wanted a wood sliced mirror. I did want to pay the price so I made one myself. Had most of the supplies laying around. I mean who doesn't have branches and a hot glue gun.
Here is the mirror I got at thrift store for 3.00 on half price day, I lightly sanded it to make wood slices adhere to the wood. I didn't bother painted it as I didn't think you would be able to see it.
I wasn't sure how it would take to the different levels but after sanded it I knew if I put enough hot glue I should be fine. It would be hanging in the bathroom and should get to much wear.
I think this was the hardest part was using the chop saw and slicing the branches into wood chips. I am very comfortable with the chop saw but I must say be careful when you slice through a knot it really jumps out of your grip.
I tried different stain colors but decided I liked just a natural stain. After cutting my wood slices I ran them over a sanding block to smooth them out. Then once I decided to stain natural I stained them all. Pulled out the hot glue gun and went to work.
I just started placing them on the mirror and glued away. Probably took a half and hour to glue them all on. I love how it turned out.
I love natural wood and this worked great for my bathroom make over. It is fun and like I said the hardest part was cutting the wood slices.
The final project. Really it was very simple and fun and only cost me the 3.00 for the mirror at the thrift store.
