Picture of Decoupage a mirror
My daughter wanted a mirror for her room.  I found a mirror for 50 cents at a garage sale, but the frame was cracked.  It was a thin plastic mold anyway, so I decided to beef it up a bit.  All in all I fixed this mirror for under $4.

What I used:
one lace curtain
Elmer's glue
scissors
tape
newspaper
gold spray paint
razor

Step 1: Starting the layers, used watered down Elmer's Glue

If the mirror wasn't so thin, I probably would have done that. The backing on this was very thin cardboard that was stapled on. It was a cheap mirror. Covering the mirror during the glue and paint process was pretty easy and quick and I didn't get any glue or paint on the mirror, so I think it was a success. I just didn't want to make the cracked mirror worse by removing it from the mirror itself if that makes sense.

Nice. Transforms a plastic frame into a piece of art. I like the blind spots (if that's the correct term for a not any more reflecting part) on the mirror.

Wouldn't it have been easier to just remove the mirror for the glue-and-paint steps?
