DIY Scrollwork Mirror
I could spend hours inside of Home Depot, but who knew they had some cool DIY projects online? I didn’t until I found this tutorial on making your own scrollwork mirror in seven steps. The best part about it is that you can purchase pieces of scroll work that are in-stock at Home Depot and paint it any color you wish. It’s fabulous!
Step 1: Sand, prime and paint the 4 pieces of scrollwork that will make up the frame.
Step 2: Assemble the frame and measure to determine the size of mirror required. They used a 20″ x 24″ bevel-edged mirror.
Tip: You can purchase inexpensive mirrors at Habitat for Humanity Restore in many different sizes. It’s an awesome resource for DIY’ers!
Step 3: Position the framing sections on the mirror and mark where the frame will sit.
Step 4: Apply clear silicone to the parts of the scrollwork that will be in contact with the mirror.
Step 5: Line up the guide marks and fit the frame to the mirror.
Step 6: Once silicone has dried remove any excess with a razor knife or scraper.
Step 7: Touch up with paint, if necessary, and hang in your preferred location.
