NC-Part 7: Wine Cork Mirror & Wine Bar

Here's another wine project. 
Save your wine corks and when you have
 enough, you can glue them to a piece of
 plywood and add a mirror.
Trim the edges with molding. 
Stain or paint the way you want. 
Now you have a customized 
mirror for above your wine bar. 
Don't forget to write the dates on the
 corks from special occasions, weddings,
 anniversaries, cruises, and you'll have a
great keepsake as well.
 Larry and I made this while here at the
 "cabbage" in North Carolina.

The wine cork framed mirror hangs above the
 salvaged tool bench that's now our wine bar.

I made my own bear coasters.
 I traced an outline of a black bear on a
leftover piece of tumbled stone tile.
Filled in with black paint pen.
Then I cut a piece of cork contact paper for
the back. Here's my set on the wine bar.
I made the sign and brought it here
because we always say...
"It's Wonderful To Be Back" every time
we arrive in North Carolina.
(See how I made the sign HERE.)

Stay Cozy.....
