Diy reclaimed wood floor mirror,how to build platform bed frame with drawers,shadow box plans with glass - Reviews
Stepping barefooted on a floor-tossed sweater, weve all had the same thought - too bad they dont make rugs this way.
I am going to be showing you how to make your own standing floor mirror and give it a reclaimed and weathered wood look without having to track down and purchase reclaimed wood. Once your Frame has been constructed you can fill the seams with wood filler to make this appear to be one solid piece. Then once that has dried follow up with the weathered wood colored stain or your gray paint wash. To attach your mirror you can use mirror hanging devices as seen in most standard tract home bathrooms. Our plan was to rip out all the layers of old flooring and install white ceramic octagon & dot tile.
Then I finished off the floor by sanding & staining it dark walnut, sealing it with spar varnish, and installing new trim.
After the vanity was in place, the mirror and light fixture were looking pretty sad, so I gave them an inexpensive makeover next. We had faux wooden blinds which we always had to keep basically shut because our neighbors’ home is so close by.
I used a DIY tub refinishing kit, and even though it got off to a pretty rocky start, I am very happy with the results.
I feel a 2 part staining process will give you the best weathered look, but you can go with a weathered wood colored stain or a gray wash by itself and still it will be amazing. Those little claw feet that will screw onto the frame on both the top, bottom, and sides to keep the mirror in place.
This allows you to secure your mirror without running the risk of breaking it and gives you a bit of room to maneuver. Carved from a solid block of wood, this sporty race car reminds me of the Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby.
If you don't prefer to purchase this extra material you can use heavy duty tape as instructed in the next step to secure your mirror.
Vintage wood carts can easily serve as coffee tables or vintage drafting tables can transform into a work desk or dining room table.
