Well check this out! I found this fun idea on a fellow blogger’s/DIY site. This chick has some great ideas and most are pretty doable. I’ve already downloaded some of her letterpress-looking letters for framing and then I found this great idea for a mirror! Before I go any further, her site is: Shanty2Chic – check it out! I’m sure you’ll love her ideas as much as I do.
Now, without further ado… let’s get started on the steps for this project.
1. You’ll want to find a small shipping pallet, or if you’re really handy like Shanty2Chic, you can make one. I luckily had access to one through my husband’s work. You’ll want to make sure it’s a small pallet, as those things can be huge for different types of freight. Mine measured 28″w x 18″ tall
I purchased a wood stain at Lowe’s called “Weathered Gray”, since I wanted a grayish-blue tint to it.
Then I went to town brushing it on the wood, letting the stain sit for a few minutes, before wiping off to the desired effect I wanted. I let it dry for a couple of days and then attached the mirror, which is part of the Target “Threshold” line. I love the lines of the mirror and it was only like $17.
