DIY Mirror

Christy and I saw this on Shanty 2 Chic via pinterest and LOVED it!!
We are both needing cute pieces for our new houses so we got the supplies and started making it.
All we got was a mirror from walmart- I think it was only like $5!
And then thanks to my hubs, he was able to bring home extra wood from work for the framing.

Super cheap walmart mirror-
we ripped off the thin white framing off of it

We laid the wood out and stapled it together.

Once it was stapled we started to stain it.
Then we put it outside and let it dry overnight.
We glued the mirror onto the back of the wood and that's it.

Easy easy!!
It really turned out so dang cute.
We decided we are going to make really big ones for our master bedrooms next :)
