We took two old boxes found at a salvage store and turned them into a pair of mirrors. This easy project requires no power tools and takes just a couple hours to make.
drill or screwdriver
hot glue gun and glue sticks
vintage wooden box
mirror (cut to size from glass shop)
strong all-purpose glass adhesive
picture hanger kit (over 20 lbs strength)
Here's what the box looked like before.
Bring the box to a glass shop and have them cut the mirror to the box's exact size. Make sure they mark which side is up since some vintage boxes may be slightly off in size. Use lightweight mirror glass.
