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
gold spray paint
Step 1: Starting the layers, used watered down Elmer's Glue
Step 2: Layering the fabric onto the frame, then brushing more glue until covered
Step 3: Continued the same pattern all the way around the frame
Step 4: I made sure the whole frame was covered with the fabric, I will trim after its dry
Step 5: Cleaning up the inside of the frame with a razor, glued the edges down with a hot glue gun
Step 6: Covering the mirror, prepping for paint
Step 7: I put down 2 coats of spray paint and let it dry
Step 8: The finished product! Not bad for a 50 cent mirror
I made this over a year ago. My daughter still has this mirror and the lace has never come off the frame. It has held up pretty well.
