I know the rustic look isn’t for everyone, but I sure do love it! When we moved into our current home, there was a plain old mirror hung on the wall with mirror clips. We promptly removed it, and it’s been sitting in my closet ever since. So I finally decided to do something with it. My dad had given me a gorgeous board of walnut, but I didn’t have enough to do the entire mirror without ripping it down. Instead of ruining the lovely grain and texture, I grabbed a piece of rustic cedar he’d also sent home with us for the top. You can hardly even tell the difference!
