  • 9 squares 12x12 mirror
  • liquid bonding adhesive
  • caulk gun
  • 1/2 inch plywood
  • 13 linear feet of 1x3 pre-painted pine trim
  • nail gun or drill
  • nails or screws
  • painters' tape
  • tape measure
  • circular saw
  • miter saw
  • level
  • semi-gloss paint
  • paint pan
  • paint roller

  • drop cloth
  • note pad

Paint Trim

Add paint to paint pan, attach roller sleeve to paint roller, then roll two coats of your chosen finish color on pre-primed trim.

Miter Corners of Trim

Using a miter saw, cut 4 37-1/2 inch pieces of trim on a 45-degree angle.

Create Frame

Holding each of the four mitered pieces of trim up to one another, fasten them together with liquid bonding adhesive and finishing nails or screws.
