Instead of heading to the store and purchasing pricey mirrors, you could invent your own-framed mirrors. Use material around your home, or purchase affordable products to design your own mirror.
The start of creating a completely new bathroom is designing your own mirrors. Use material around the home, such as photo frames. Try to choose an embellishing prototype because it will make a great wall mirror. Otherwise you can design tabletop mirrors and use it as a vanity. When you surround vanity with your favorite items including perfumes and so on, it will make a nice display.
You will need a picture frame again and you want a frame to fit the mirror. Try to choose mirror and frames at with the amount of cm you need which is around one-eighth-inch to a quarter inches or choose the size you want to accomplish. An additional three to six centimeters is needed, which equals around the same measurements.
Adding a back
Use hardboard to add your backing. Make sure that you match the board to the weight of the mirror when choosing the board. Also make sure that the cardboard will hold up the frame and mirror weight. Depending on the dimension, Mirrors typically weigh approximately seven hundred fifty-g. You are making the quarter frame in this instance, so you will need to consider point zero/thirty two squares per m. You will need a board to hold 1.6-kg per square foot if your mirror weighs more than 3-pounds. The board thickness should be around 8 inches. The mirror will fit into your rabbet. You can have the glass cut at any glass shop, or mirror shop that specializes in glass products. Purchase hardboards of equal size if you want to use fancy material.
You will need to fit the mirror onto the backing once you have your materials together. The backing should slide into the wood joints or groove cut. You will also need to nail your brads into the picture frame mildly to avoid breaking your mirror once you have inserted your parts. If you intend to hang the mirror on your wall, get hangers which you want to pivot.
Choosing mounting materials
To mount your frame you will need your mirror, frame, short screws, corner brace, craft paper (Brown), dual-adhesive farmer tape, dust cover, hangers, a couple of mirror hangers, awl, jigsaw, knife, and additional screws.
You can start creating your mirror if you already have the basic idea. It takes ten steps completely to create your framed mirror in short. We recommend that you visit your local library and check out books to direct you to finish your mirror. Otherwise, you can follow these 10 steps:
- Face your frame on the wrong side and secure your brace corners and fasten it transversely to connect with the milter corners
- Create pilot holes in the back of your frame wiith your awl
- Insert the screws once you have created the holes
- If you have purchased hardboard, or using cardboard, cut the board to match the size or your mirror
- Place the mirror inside your wood joints facedown
- Place your hardboard/cardboard inside the wood joints and over your mirror. Brads should be inserted at this point. It should measure at two points five-cm at the intervals of your corners
- Use your tape to adhesive the frame, layering the tape at the outer edges of your frame and around three-mm. Do with the paper cover.
