  1. Cut (2) vertical 28”-long and (2) horizontal 24”-long pieces of wood at 45 degree angles with a miter saw or radial arm.
  2. Glue and nail the pieces together to create a rectangular frame, and using a level, ensure all parts are flat and square.
  3. Fill nail holes and gaps with stainable wood putty and a putty knife.
  4. Sand all pieces with progressive sandpaper grits, 120/180/220.
  5. Apply two coats of wood stain to the entire frame with a rag or paintbrush, and allow it to dry.
  6. Section off areas (in a preferred geometric pattern) with painter’s tape.
  7. Apply two coats of white spray paint, and allow it to dry for 24-48 hours.
  8. Carefully remove painter's tape.
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 with more painter’s tape and now silver paint.
  10. Apply two light coats of urethane finish to the entire frame, and allow it to dry.
  11. Center and position the mirror on the back of the frame, and secure each of the four sides with two wood screws and washers. Position the screws 1/16" away from the edge of the wood while holding the mirror in place.
  12. Attach picture-hanging hardware according to package instructions, then hang the framed mirror on the wall.
