Recycling A Mirror

The Big Wood Ruler Mirror that I just finished has an interesting story. This is how it came to be...
These mirrors (photo below) are sitting in our unfinished basement, waiting to be recycled.


They came from the bathrooms in our house that we've slowly been changing up. They're a big box builder thing. When we moved in, 5 years ago, every bathroom looked like this one (left photo below). Big boring mirror topped with cheap Hollywood lights. It's a good thing I make mirrors:)


The Process: I took one of those big plain mirrors, added a big fat frame then worked some design magic. In this case the magic came from 234 wood rulers, 408 brass screws and 156 brass hex nuts.
The Big Wood Ruler Mirror was the first of these mirrors to get a new life. Three more to go. Stayed tuned...
