DIY Plywood Floor Mirror

DIY Plywood Floor Mirror With Shelves @themerrythoughtToday’s project is a great way to add some practical storage space to your room. A solid piece of plywood makes for a strong, sturdy back for this minimal floor mirror while giving you a little space for accessories, perfume, and a few of your favorite trinkets.
DIY Plywood Floor Mirror With Shelves @themerrythoughtMaterials Needed:
-26″x52″x1″ piece of maple plywood
-1″ maple plywood
-pencil
-tape measure
-jigsaw
-drill
-screws
-unframed mirror
-mirror clips

Directions: (Step photos on Home Free)
-Measure and mark three 4″x8″ pieces of plywood. Use jigsaw to cut out each piece.
-Lay the plywood down with the back facing up and measure 7.5″ down from the top of the board and 4″ in from the left side of the board. Make a mark. Now measure 7.5″ down from the top of the board and 8″ in from the left side of the board and make another mark. Repeat two more times going down the board, leaving 7.5″ height between the boards each time. Pre-drill at these six marks.
-Measure 2″ in from each side along the back side of each of the shelves. And make a mark – make sure it is centered. Drill a pilot hole at each of these marks.
-Line up the holes and drill in place.
-Lay down the plywood so the shelves are facing up. Lay the mirror along the left side leaving 2″ from the side, top, and bottom. Secure using mirror clips.

    Where did you get the unframed mirror?ReplyCancel

      You can get them at Lowe’s or Home Depot. I bought a regular mirror though and just removed the frame – it’s easy to break them though.ReplyCancel

        I live in New Zealand, I have searched probably every shop and they just don’t sell unframed dress mirrors. Can you explain how you removed your frame without chipping or breaking the mirror? -ThanksReplyCancel

          I bought a $5 mirror at Walmart and the frame was pretty easy to break off. You have to be very careful – I have definitely broken a mirror before doing this. But I basically would just make sure that the back of the mirror was supported well (not giving it room to bend) and then I would wiggle the plastic frame sides back and forth until I could pull them apart at the corners and peel them back from the mirror.ReplyCancel

    Hello! I absolutely ADORE your blog; from the style and the formatting/design, to the content! I actually referred to this mirror in a recent post, as a design that I will use in the house I will be building in the late spring. I would love for you to check it out and give me any feedback that you may have – I appreciate it, and fully support your operation! http://escapetovavau.com/2016/01/08/h-om-e-january-inspiration/ReplyCancel
