Happy Thursday, friends! I want to share a quick diy project with you today.

I’ve been holding onto this mirror I snatched at Target ages ago. It was $1. It’s a nice square, but I’m not crazy about the frame. I thought about spray painting it, but that never really got me excited. So I never did it. It needed something more. So I plugged in my hot glue gun, got out some wood shims and got busy.

Once again, I forgot to take progress pictures. And I just quickly snapped pictures with my phone when I was done.

What You Need:

A Mirror (since my mirror already had a frame, it also had a way to hang it)

Hot Glue

Wood Shims (mine are from Home Depot, but I’m sure any hardware store would have them)

Sharp Scissors

What You Do:

Lay your mirror down flat and start glueing down wood shims! Pretty simple. I started gluing on the mirror. Then I worked my way to the outside of the frame. I made sure to cover all the part of the red/orange frame. Then I glued shims around the outside to make a border. I used sharp scissors to cut different sizes of wood. It’s the kind of thing you can’t really mess up. My kind of project!

The really bad before.

The much better after! (By the way, do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a mirror and not get anything in it? Hence the weird angle…)

And the details.

Maybe I’ll get around to taking better pictures of it, but in the meantime I just wanted to share it! Have a great day!
