My wife found a wonderful project that she wanted to complete on her own. The only help that she needed (wanted) from me was the purchase of a few packs of shims.
I purchased 2 different types of shims and it turned out that the grain pattern between the 2 was wildly different. This allowed for some nice contrast in the mirror.
- Shim 1:
- Shim 2:
The first was a cedar contractor shim and the second was a more common 8″ shim. The 8″ shims were pine and had a nice striped grain. The cedar shims were clear and much longer. The length of the cedar shim provided a natural way to mix up the pattern.
