It’s polka dot week over at R and R workshop! And since I ADORE polka dots…I had to play along!
whipped up a super easy mirror!
I measured the wood….and cut 5 inches extra than the mirror….I wanted it to overlap the mirror so the mirror sits behind it. (Home depot can cut your wood…so no excuses!)
Then I just globbed on wood glue on the inside and put the frame together and then hot glued the back seams with my adtech glue gun. It’ s my crap method –but it actually REALLy holds it well!
I wanted a real distressed look…so I watered down the paint and globbed it on. after it dried I used sandpaper to distress it!
Then painted on polka dots (I used a piece of cardboard to cut out a circle!) (if you are paying attention–I started with dark blue. hated it. and switched to white polka dots)
You can see how the blue pops through here..
I also distressed the edges with some brown watered-down paint
And then hot glued the mirror on the back!
I’ve moved it around a few times! it goes with everything in my house!I LOVE polka dots!!!
so cute! what is the thickness of the wood you used?
It was a bit bigger than 1/2 an inch! but any size would work!
