    Hi Dinah, Mirrors are my favourite thing to work with. I like to Mosaic on the mirror surface and carry the design on to the frame. I use pottery from the local beach, broken tiles, glass beads, broken jewellery, and anything else that sparkles.
    I use tile grout to stick my design in place and leave it to set overnight.
    Using thick card I spread a good amount of tile grout over the mosaic to fill in any spaces.
    Once it’s dry, remove any excess grout then polish.
    Now to decide if you want a mirror or a table.

    For those mirrors: once I had a similar object and I turned the frame so they looked like crackledmarble. Very lovely even years later.

      Hi Diane! I like that. It would be a nice shabby chic look.

    Photocopying lots of your favourite images in black and white onto cream paper to do a decoupage frame. That away fixing the frame with filler won’t show. Pictures of ornate framed mirrors would be centrist chic.
    Would be shameful to change the frame when it’s not really needed.
    Regards Deborah.
