I used 12mm mdf and framed the top edge in 6mm DAR (not sure what DAR stands for but it is straight edge timber cut square all around). I bought 30cm bevel edge mirrors from the local hardware store. Measure carefully and have the mdf cut to size, remembering to add the extra for the DAR around the edge and a little bit more for a space between the mirrors.
I decided to make my finished size mirrors 2 across and 3 up.
I mitre cut the DAR and used wood glue to attach it to the top edge of the boards ( I made 2 mirrors) I then clamped the edges and allowed them to dry overnight. Once that was done I stained and varnished the frame and edges plus the area on the board that would show up between the mirrors.
The mirrors were then attached to the backing board with glazing silicon. Now these mirrors are very heavy I made sure that the hanging hooks on the back were heavy duty ones that could take the weight!
So what do you think....was it worth waiting for? Now, I know you are going to say it.....where is the padded headboard..... it's coming.....well its on the list, you cant rush a girl! The bedroom is almost complete!!!
Ahhh......I love my bedroom!
