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.
