Step Two

Using gorilla wood glue, attach your slats of wood to the plywood. and place the mirrors into the slats to measure out the distance. Repeat this process as you move down the plywood. Then repeat the process with the vertical slats. Go back and reinforce all the slats with nails.

Step Three

Spackle over all your nail holes and then sand the top so the slats are even. Spray paint the slats with your desired color.
