Livestock Brands Mirror

 Did you see the photo covered magnet board I made for my sister?  That was like 4 years ago.  

Well I actually originally bought an unfinished mirror from Michael's to put photos around, but then I decided to do a magnet board instead.  I have been de-junking a little bit and the other day I came across the unfinished mirror that has been moved from place to place. I figured it was time to do something with it. This is what I came up with...

I looked up some brands online, picked the ones I liked, and then drew them onto the mirror with a pencil.  My husband saw me doing it, and thought it was kind of cool.  When I told him I was going to use the wood-burner to draw them on.  He offered to do that part.  And of course I was MORE THAN WILLING to let him!

After he was done I just stained it with Early American Minwax Stain.

PS. One of the brands is ours...can you guess which one?

Never miss a new post!


  1. This looks great. Perfect for a western themed decor. Visiting from Be Inspired link up - Have a wonderful week!

  2. I love the frame! I bought a wood burner a while back and have had fun playing around with it. I'll have to try this!

  3. That's really original! It would look great in my son's Cowboy bedroom (the one that doesn't exist yet!) Thanks for sharing :)

  4. So wood burning is fun for guys, lol! That was nice of him to help and it turned out great!

  5. I've been doing some wood burning too. I like how you used stain. I burn, paint and then go back in a re-burn. Too much work. Such a great vintage western look. Thanks for sharing on BeColorful.
