Marggo's Mirror-WIP

cathyscacheOctober 24, 2011

Started this mirror a couple of days ago. Spent the last 2 days collecting rocks on the beach. Marg is a rock hound like me so she requests rocks like my bathroom. Green stained glass down all sides of the 22in X 22in mirror rock all around that...I glue mdf where the stained glass is to go so it is raised a bit since the rocks are thick. Will do the same under the mirror. This one will probably take me awhile and it's gonna be heavy!!

What is MDF?
You have made a lot of "rocky" items!

I've been spending my afternoons @ the beach collecting rocks before it snows, so progress is slow

Very very nice!
I love the rocks with the green glass, very natural sea feeling.

Nice if U click on the pic it shud get larger. I finished the china corners today after plowing 14in of snow we got here yesterday. Just need to add the edgeing and mirror and grout. It's going to weigh a ton but I forwarned her.
