THE PLAN:

Take this:



Its bigger and it doesnt have bezelled edges.

I have a bunch of oak pallets, with 8' planks.

How do i go about framing this mirror with the oak planks to make it into a leaning mirror for my living room?

ive never seen anything like this. she saw it on pinterest and now i have to figure out a way to do it.

FML

please help mates

Just dado the back side of the pieces and use Craig scews and glue to hold the it together on the back side.
It would just like the back side of any picture frame.
You can use window points to hold the mirror in place.

the mirror is about 5x7 by my estimate and a bit heavy.
will the window points be strong enough to hold it?

Take dobs of mirror mastic behind the mirror. Just little blobs all over to hold it, as Joe said, do not glue it, it will destroy the silver backing
