Remember when I posted this mysterious clamp-ridden photo? Well, the clamps have come off and now it's time to reveal what it is I've made. Ta-da! A floor mirror for our bedroom, using one of the large unframed beveled mirrors that the previous owners left in the house:
It will serve to cover the wall that currently has a giant access panel cut-out as its main decorative element. This seems better.
I built the frame out of plywood and maple, with thin slivers of aluminum in the places where the maple beams connect for a little bling. It's rather heavy, but I would ideally like to hang it on the wall. I haven't yet checked whether any of the studs are suitably located. We'll see!
