Make an Oversized Antique Glass Mirror

Make an Oversized Antique Glass Mirror

A worn oversized mirror is something I've been on the market for since I bought my house. They're ridiculously expensive and completely out of my price range. Since it's been three years and one hasn't magically been bestowed upon me for a reasonably price, this is the route I plan on taking.  

I want to place this DIYed antique glass mirror in my entryway, and I think the massive amounts of light the space gets will play off of the "imperfections" nicely. A great thing about this project is that you can taylor it to your own needs. Have a mirror you'd just like to update with a new look? It works. Want to build one to suit a certain space? Perfect. Versatility is key in any good project, a little creative breathing room if you will.

A large size antique mirror or frame in the entry way would look charming. I think creating a frame or leaving it with fine polish would do well.Love your idea. Let us know how it turns out!:)
