I showed you all what I MADE for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day, but I have not shown you what my AMAZING husband made me. Brace yourself for this amazing-ness. 🙂
I saw a pin of a large mirror in a gorgeous wood frame on Pinterst forever ago, and I fell in love with it. Since we have been married, we have just had a big plain mirror leaning up against my dresser in our room. It was definitely NOT baby proof, but since is was the only body length mirror we had, we just kind have dealt with it. At times I have had to steer all my kids away from it as they were banging on it, with fear that it could have fallen on them. During these seasons of our lives, my bedroom door has remained closed all day…everyday.
Here are pictures of baby CALEB playing with our mirror…
For Mother’s Day, I asked Matt if he would make me some version of the pin I had seen. He FAR out did himself!! I not only got a safe mirror…it is stunning and oh so beautiful. The best part would have to be my husband’s heart behind it.
He wanted to make it perfect for me, and he did. There were many a steps, where I was ready for him to cut corners. For instance, when the mirror didn’t fit into the frame (one of the two was slightly warped or something from being a perfect rectangle), I was ready for him to just glue another piece of wood behind the mirror. I thought it could just sit on top. He wanted it to rest inside the frame, so he hand carved and chipped at the trim until the mirror fell into place. LOVE.
He designed it. He bought supplies. He measured and constructed it. He went back and bought more supplies. He painted it. He sanded it. He stained it. He chizzeled it. He touched up painted it. He touched up stained it. He waxed finished it.
I am one blessed girl! Thank you boo for this amazing gift, but more importantly…thank you for the gift of YOU!
He would say it’s not perfect, but to me…it couldn’t be any more perfect! I am in love with it and my husband!
