Good Idea. . .? Bad Idea. . . ?

It occurred to me on a thrift store outing some time ago that this $1.00 plastic 'gold' charger plate might make a great mirror frame, combined with a round craft mirror. I've been thinking it over in the back of my mind for some time, while watching out for a deal on the mirror.

I have finally committed myself and settled on the above beveled craft mirror, here complete with image of my camera-wielding arm--plain, unadorned mirrors of this size (8" diameter) seem to be unavailable. Original mirror price, $5.00, with 40% off coupon, more reasonable!

Today I'll glue the two pieces together with my trusty E6000, and tomorrow I'll post the finished product. I still just don't know--I think it's a good idea, but maybe it's just lame. . .


  1. I think it's a fantastic idea... I think I know the perfect place for you to hang it! :o)

  2. I think you are suppose to use mirror glue. I heard that other glues can eat away the finish on the back and ruin the mirror. I can't wait to see how it turns out I have that same charger. I think a mirror would be cute.

  3. I think it would be great! You could even paint something on the gold (leaves maybe?).

  4. I think it's a perfect idea... can't wait to see the final product!


I love feedback. Leave me a comment!
