DIY French Trumeau Mirror

Once I was watching french interiors on internet when saw those beautiful framed Trumeau mirrors.  I had to get one, and started to look on ebay and some other pages. For sure I found not only one, but prices wasn't very friendly... Then I thought I can try to make one. I ordered everything I will need for less than 60£. It could be more than half cheaper, if I would have wood board and old mirror,  but unfortunately I hadn't. Here is how plywood board looked like

It's 70x90 cm. I had to use some wood filler, as there were many dents.

Here you can see how it looked when I primed and fixed dents. I made a frame around mirror from wood moulding.

Sorry, I won't show you pictures of later steps, as it was evening and they are very bad quality. 
But here is the result!

I can't hang it on the wall, because still waiting for heavy duty picture hanging hooks, so brought it outside, to take a photos.
Here are some close up.

This is resin aplique. 

Thank you for visiting me today.
