A quick post to share with you the latest restoration project I'm working on: a mirror made from reclaimed wooden windows. This is the first project I've done which is effectively 'up-cycling' something and I'm quite excited to see how it turns out!
I picked up these awesome semi-circular windows at a reclamation yard that specialises in architectural salvage items. I am going to restore the wood by stripping it back and then I think it will be painted - no decision on colour or effect yet. The two semi-circles will be fixed together with mirror behind and then it will be secured with a strong wooden back support.
This is the shape they will be once they are fixed together:
In this photo you can see the top half has glass in and the bottom half does not. I'm not sure the best way to remove glass - maybe tape it first? Thankfully I have the fantastic guys at Inspired Furniture helping me with this one so maybe they can give me a few pointers!
Will keep you posted on progress and share the photographs of the finished mirror.
