Mirror - Before and After







Mirror in the raw (above)






I drilled a pilot hole and then pushed in the upholstery studs.





A coat of primer/sealer/undercoat and a dry-brushing of top coat.





The finished product.









I picked up a couple of MDF mirrors last week at the Tender Centre. I paid $16 each and was pretty happy with that. This mirror is the larger of the two and a really good size with a 160am diameter.
I am really happy with the end result and will be listing this one on ebay soon. My user name is Grootsww if anyone local (Gold Coast) is interested.
