Bigger is better, especially with mirrors

I just finished a new mirror. My biggest to date. It's part of my School House Series.
It's 5'x 6'9" and weighs about 110 lbs. It's made with 408 brass screws, 156 brass hex nuts and 234 wood rulers.
It's big.


Marathon Man and I managed to hang it with minimal swearing. And I think we're still friends?:)
I love the impact of big stuff!!! Happy weekend.

Good that you're going big, expanding your range and choice.
It's bigger than me so I'll be able to see all of me:)

I love that you finished the edges with rulers, too. VERY well done, Karen!

Design Sponge sent out an update e-mail and there you were! With this fabulous oversized mirror! And what did I find when I came to your site? MOSAICS! I'm in heaven. My site showcases repurposed design, and I have a passion for all things mosaic. So glad I found you. Created a feature post today if you want to have a look.
