If you tuned into Home to Win and saw Mia Parres’s gorgeous master bedroom redesign, your eye probably drifted towards a certain driftwood mirror hanging over the wall table near the room’s entrance. The sunburst design is modern in shape but rustic in execution thanks to the added wood, making it a perfect addition to this lakeside retreat.
As it turns out, all you need are a few simple tools to get a driftwood mirror of your very own. Here’s how Mia made the stunning piece in a matter of minutes.
- A round mirror
- A large piece of cardboard
- Pieces of driftwood, either from a craft store or the great outdoors
- A hot glue gun
What you do:
- Lay the mirror on a flat surface
- Cut the cardboard into a large circle that fits inside the mirror, leaving roughly eight-to-10 centimetres (more if you have larger pieces of wood) between the edge of the cardboard and the edge of the mirror.
- Glue the pieces of driftwood one at a time in a circular fashion until you’ve completed the entire circumference of the mirror.
- Let it dry, remove the cardboard and voila! Your very own driftwood mirror.
- Use a stencil when cutting the cardboard to get a perfect circle.
- Choose varying lengths and thicknesses of driftwood in order to get that rustic look.
