Reflective Dirftwood

13 Aug

It’s all about the driftwood.  Who would have thought that water-beaten logs could be turned into decorations?  My sister-in-law had an idea of making a driftwood mirror and I thought, “Hey, I live along the water. I can get all the free driftwood I want!”  Our downstairs bathroom mirror was the perfect candidate as it was completely plain and terribly ugly. So I gathered the driftwood I collected and introduced it my mirror.  “Hello mirror!”

I laid out the driftwood to get an idea of how the pieces were going to fit.  It was kind of like a seaside puzzle. That’s our dog Dash’s paw in the photo. She was oggling the drftwood, as she really wanted to chew on a piece of it.

Since the mirror was hard to hang, as the mirror hangers would interfere with the driftwood placement, I hung it before gluing the drfitwood on. That, of course, made it a little more difficult to glue the wood on.  So I would glue a piece and then use painters tape to hold it in place.  It worked like a charm!

And here is the final result.  What do you think??

    Great job! I will have to take myself down to the beach and start collecting more pieces as I have an idea this will not be the only mirror decorated in the family!
