    Mirror frame - DONE!

    I decided to spend some time on the mirror frame today above the dresser built-in. I found an app called Measure and Sketch for my phone that lets me take pics and make measurement notes on the pictures. It does lack a forward slash "/" for using fractions though.

    A quick test fit to make sure the recesses were fitting, and check with SWMBO'd to get her final approval.

    Just used some #20 biscuits to join the corners, this was the final finish, just a few coats of rattle can poly.

    Looking good, Darren! It's amazing how easy it is to dress up an area like that. Reminds me - I need to get back to a similar frame in our master bath - in between the other household projects!!!

    Plain yes, but I think appropriate for the application: it carries the lines of the dresser, the abutting walls & the reflected walls as well. Looks good - i like it Darren - nice job!

    You know, I agree. I was trying to get her to either do a panel design from the top of the mirror to the soffit to mimic the drawer front panels or simply arch the top of the top piece. The boss has got something in mind with replacing the can light with one of those pendant light conversions and says that the mirror details would be too much, so I'm trusting her design eye on this one.

    It looks great!

    If you like it and your wife likes it, then I'd say "Mission Accomplished"

    BTW, I downloaded that app you mentioned, looks VERY useful!
