Dimensions: Height 23.5 inches, Width 19.5 inches, Thickness 1 inch, Mirror dimensions 17.75 x 14 inches, Weight 15 pounds. I promise, you’ll always look great in this mirror. The three cool colors and the texture on the back of the larger blue tiles evoke water, so this mirror might work really well in a bathroom. But it could also be a nice addition to an entryway, living room, den, bedroom or dressing room. Two D-rings are attached to the back, so all you need to hang it is a hammer and a couple of nails. $200.
A neighbor just a few houses up the street set a wicker-framed mirror out in the alley along with some other stuff. I immediately had the idea of converting it to a bulletin board and using the mirror in a different project—this one. By luck, I had a leftover piece of ¾-inch thick medium density fiberboard that needed only one inch trimmed off one side to create an equal-sized border around the mirror. I painted a thick coat of primer on the backing board (always important because adhesives are absorbed by “raw” MDF) and glued the mirror to it using Loctite Premium Construction Adhesive. I came up with a simple design using small mosaic tiles left over from another project, and glued them one-by-one around the mirror—using tweezers for all the green ones. Whew! When they were set, I added “Snow White” grout—which, perhaps surprisingly, is slightly darker than pure white. I applied a couple coats of a sealant to protect the grout against moisture, in case you use the mirror in a bathroom. I created a thin frame for an outside border using a piece of newly purchased 1-inch lattice wood, attaching it to the MDF with glue and nails. Finally, I put a couple of coats of Behr Ultra Pure White semi-gloss paint on the frame and the back.
