For my upcycle project, I created a piece that doubles as a mirror and an art piece for my room. My room started out very empty and with no decorations at all. My inspiration came from that emptiness of my walls so I decided to fill it with a paintstick mirror.
These are the only materials that I used to create my project. I found 4 wooden stakes instead of paint sticks to use since I liked the shape better. I also had an old mirror laying around. With that, I bought a tube of super glue and then started working. I messed around with the placement of the stakes for a while and finally found a pattern I liked. I wanted to deviate from the circular pattern and come up with something of my own.
This is my final product. Some further improvements I plan on having are to have the stakes painted a dark grey color for a calm aesthetic. Another improvement is to attach a little slot in the back so I can hang it on my wall to finish the aesthetic piece I set out to create.
