Mosaic Mirror

I made this mirror this weekend to go above my sink.(-: It is made out of an old window frame. I cut up a few glass mirrors to use for this project. I had some of those 12X12 inch tiles you get for crafts, weddings, candles etc. I used GE Silicone Glue to glue the mirror pieces down. I always use GE Silicone Glue. I like it and its easy to use(-: Clean up can be a little tricky so its best to be careful when applying it so it doesn't get all over the place(-: A little dab goes a long way(-: I used black sanded grout to finish it off. The window frame was as is. Chippy, peeling and perfect!!!(-:

Hi Cindee - glad to see your new project. It looks great. What did you use to put the mosaic pieces on. Did you use a special glue. Your little statue is very sweet too.

Hi Creekside Rummager,
Thank You(-:
I used GE Silicone Glue. I always use that glue because it holds up well.

I think that mirror would look wonderful in the garden as it reflected the light at different times of the day. Great job.

Hi GardenJoy4Me,
Thanks(-: I will hop a plane and be right over(-: Give MistaG a hug for me(-:
You can buy little mirror tiles online to mosaic things. In bulk they are much cheaper or you can do like me and cut your own(-: Its more work but way cheaper!!!! Mirrors are super cool when they reflect the sunshine(-: This mirror is neat because the angles of the little mirror tiles are all mixed up so it bounces light everywhere!!!! Kinda like Fairies dancing!!!!

Hi Crafty Gardener,
Thanks! It is really a fun piece!!! It should hold up well since its under the eve of the house too!!!(-:

Hi Tina,

Hi Meadowview Thymes,

Hi pammiejo,
Thank You!! I love making things!! I do need energy for work though!!! Which I am off too in a few mins!!! LOL(-: Somehow I never have enough energy for work but I can come home and work all day in the yard...interesting how that

Hi Tootsie,
I think you should make one for your garden(-: It would be pretty reflecting all your pretty flowers!!!!(-:

Cindee, love your window mirror. There used to be a junk store here that carried old doors & windows and lots of cool things. When they closed I cried, it was a favorite picking place. Now I'm down to the son-in-law's boneyard behind the ol barns.

Grace Peterson said...

Cindee, What kind of glue did you use? Just kidding. I READ your text. In fact I think I need to look into this brand.

Your mosaic is VERY cool. I need some of your talent and motivation.

I hope you didn't cut any fingers during the crafting and installation process. I know. Morbid sense of humor. How is your finger anyway?

It's adorable! Saw the photo on facebook and had to come and see it close up. I'll have to note that adhesive and try it sometime.
