Vintage Window Mirror and the DIY Project Parade

It's been a week and I can't wait to see what you've been DIY-ing!  This week, I created an acid-look vintage window mirror using an old window, Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like paint, Gorilla Glue and left over fabric.  Super easy! 



1.  It seems there is rumor that Krylon was going to discontinue Looking Glass paint.  Myth!  Krylon states there is no plan to discontinue Looking Glass paint.

2.   They also said that the main retailer for the looking glass is Michaels.  I would also try other crafting stores. The product rep gave me this Web site as well. They said they usually refer people to it to find more products:
Ace Hotline

Let's see what you've been up to!

The link that you gave for the DIY club tutorial on this is a link for the photo and not the tutorial. I would really like to see how you did this and the other pics. Will look and see if I can find on the blog.

Wow! Great fix for an old window. It looks great!!! Someone said that they are not going to make the Krylon mirror paint anymore? How awful is THAT!?! Diana

I love this idea. I have 2 identical window frames, so I think I will do what you did and hang them over opposite sides of the couch. Thanks for hosting such a creative party.

I have something almost exactly like this in my living room - will post pics, my father had the windo frame and we found a piece of mirror large enough for $3 at a garage sale. So cheap and brightens up any room! New to blogspot. would love followers! Check out my blog - have a fabulous monday :)

Mike said...

Looks great! We were given a window just like this and we were trying to figure out how to cut mirrors to fit. We might steal this trick!

NYCLQ said...

I know I'm suppose to be looking at the mirror you made, which is gorgeous as usual. But I LOVE those little stands the pumpkins are on. Where'd you get those? Are those cupcake stands, candlesticks?

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

I really love how this turned out. I think I might need to head over to the Renovation Station to find a window and try this.

Patricia Torres said...

I love this idea. I love mirrors but would like to change it up so it doesn't look to redundant (I already have a mirror in each room.)
