When Life Gives You Scraps...

I have been collecting a pile of leftover painted wood scraps from my various projects this summer and finally decided to use them.  I had a free mirror that I first glued down to a random board that was in the garage (hope it didn't have a purpose honey!).  Then came the piecing. 
I played with the pieces, cutting them smaller as needed--this took about an hour or so.  When I had everything where I wanted it, I used the nail gun to secure each piece in place.
A little sanding of the rough edges and some wax was all it took to finish up my scrappy mirror.
