We Made A Trumeau Mirror

We did it........Debbie and I put our skills together and made a trumeau mirror. Being that we're from New Orleans shouldn't we spell it Trumeaux. Hmmmm, I think I just came up with a new word.

It was a little scary using a table and a chop saw. We pulled up our big girl pants, closed our eyes and went to work. OK, maybe one of us closed our eyes....DEBBIE. We are so pleased with our creation. After putting it together we painted it a silvery blue/grey with off white moulding. We then finished it with 2 coats of poly and 2 coats of wax to give it a time worn finish. What do you think? Yes we know we need to work on our photography skills.

If you're from the New Orleans area and interested in our mirror email us at We can make a mirror to fit your special space. You pick the color and size, we'll make it for you. 

Special thanks to our camera shy friend at Moulding & Millwork Supply for your help. If your looking for great prices and a large selection of mouldings, and doors this is your place.

We have more projects in the making.
