Mirror Art

Here is another version of Mirror Art that I create using an existing mirror. I previously posted about artwork using mirror spray paint. Here I rubbed the mirror finish off the back and adhered an image that I found @ The Graphics Fairy using Mod Podge. This technique is a great reuse of vintage mirrors that have hazing or scratches in the reflective surface. Actually the worse the better as it creates an antique look!

Here, instead of a vintage mirror, I used a mirror tile left over from some long ago home improvement project. I had intended for this bird mirror to be used as a candle plate. I think it would look great in a bookcase propped up to reflect light in a dark space.

I am linking this to Funky Junk Interiors.


  1. I just love your mirrors turned artwork projects! I would love to learn how to do that! I am addicted to Mod Podge, so this sounds like it's right up my alley! I also really love that black frame, it's gorgeous!

  2. This would look great on a bookcase to reflect light!

  3. Wonderful works of art, you are talking my language with the reuse repurpose!!!
    Keep smiling and creating

  4. Maybe I missed it, but did you use steel wool to rub the back of the mirror?

  5. Dear Diva,
    Seems that every mirror finish is different. Sometimes I will use an ebrasive sided sponge akin to steel wool. I have also used paint stripper on the stubborn ones.
