Decorative Mirrors can add character to your home but they usually come with a hefty price tag! This DIY Pub Mirror is a quick, inexpensive project that you can customize to fit your style! Change up the hardware, don’t add hardware, give it a special finish. The possibilities are endless!

*NOTE: Before cutting the hardwood plywood to size, lay the mirrors and wood down on the plywood to make sure it is a perfect fit!

      Fill your nail holes and add a finish! Once the finish is dry, attach the hinges to the frame. We used large hex bolts to attach the hinges and painted them black. You can get creative with the hardware on this and make it your own! Finally, use your 18-Volt Hot Glue Gun to attach the mirrors.. (We used 12"x12" and 12"x24" Mirrors) Make sure to share your builds with us on social and use #shanty2chic so we can share them too!
