I love making something from nothing and this is a great example.
The frame to this mirror came out of a packing box for furniture. I think it’s purpose is to support the cardboard box to keep the furniture inside from being damaged.
I picked it out of the trash pile at a local furniture store. It’s made of MDF and all I had to do is remove the center piece of wood that was attached to the frame.
I had leftover textured wallpaper and thought it would make a great faux tin looking mirror.
I lightly wet the wallpaper just as I would as if I was hanging it on the wall but also applied white glue to the frame, MDF can soak up materials like I sponge I thought it was important to add this step. I carefully applied the paper, trimmed it up and once dry, painted it. I used several different colors to add depth and applied an antique glaze to age it up.
