Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.

Attention All You DIYers!


I keep seeing pictures like this in decorating magazines.

I want to do this.

I've bought the mirror...BUT

how the heck do you adhere a mirror on mirror?

HELP!

  1. Silicon mastic is safe and flexible. A permanent bond (glass to glass) could be a UV glue, but Silicon is nice and reversable. You CAN drill through glass with diamond, but that will effectively destroy the mirror behind.

  3. I like Tom's idea...go for the glue. I was going to say drill but he has the perfect solution. Good Luck!!

  4. I agree Jeanne. Just have to figure out a way to shim the second mirror while the silicone sets. I'll be sure to post the results (if it all works out)!

  5. Wish I could help J.,but you know me I'd probably just lean the mirror up against the bigger mirror!

  6. J - the one mirror looks like it's a reflection in the other mirror. Why not put them on opposite walls so that they reflect each other? Perhaps that's not what you had in mind? Only saying this 'cos I can't even knock a nail in straight!

  7. Unfortunately V. the mirror isn't tall enough just to lean. I could see in it, but anyone over 5'10" would feel like their head had been cut off (and it is the guest bathroom)... and Molly, yes there is a wall I could put the mirror on to reflect in the primary mirror, but the idea of mounting the second mirror is to 'tart up' the ugly sheet mirror in the bathroom.
    Thanks both for your input though.
    Test run today...we've bought a small piece of glass and will try to adhere something heavy to it to see if it slides! Stay tuned!

  8. What about taking out the mirror from the frame, and just glue the frame to the existing sheet mirror.

  9. V...you are such a dear...thought about that too, but the bevelled glass in the mirror is just too wonderful.
