The result will be perfect with no matter what wood you’re using. In our article, we’ll deal with mirror sized 4 foot tall and 1 foot wide. Your size may differ so you need to recalculate measurements given. Take two wooden boards at 10 ft long each. Cut the first one in two pieces 4 ft 4 inches long each. Cut the second board in the same way. Their long must be at 1ft 6 inches each. They will be borders of rustic wooden wall mirrors.
Cut ends of the pieces to 45 degrees angle. Control yourself to make the lineup cuts. It’s not easy but you are passionate and accurate so you’ll be perfect. After the wood is cut, stain pieces inside and outside. Do this on the table or ground. Just go over the wood with stain and wipe clean to cause an old fashioned effect.
