Trace Backing to Plywood
Place assembled frame directly on top of plywood along a flat, solid surface. Using a pencil, trace along all four outside edges of frame. Next, cut along traced line with circular saw.
Paint and Attach Backing
To prevent warping, and also to ensure the backing disappears once the mirrors are attached, paint the plywood backing to match the frame. Attach the backing to the frame with wood screws.
Using a pencil and note pad, create a sketch notating the placement of each mirror and its corresponding elevation. To replicate this project, use three different heights: flat, 1/2-inch rise and 1-inch rise. Tip: Keeping the elevations varied within each row ensures a multi-dimensional look. No adjacent mirrors should be placed at the same height.
