Reflecting Window Mirror Decor

By Christine Dejulio from Krylon

Simple frosted glass accents add subtle, classic beauty to this window frame mirror.

Supplies:

  • Krylon Frosted Glass Finish - Pearl Gray (#9044)
  • Krylon Make It Stone!® Textured Paints - Mediterranean Reef (#18227)
  • Krylon Make It Last!® Clear Sealer - Clear (#18200)
  • Old window
  • Mirror panels (cut to fit your particular window panes)
  • Foam core or cardboard
  • Glazing points
  • Window hanging hardware (2 screw-eyes & picture hanging wire)
  • Flat bladed screwdriver
  • Safety glasses
  • Work gloves
  • Putty knife
  • Utility knife
  • Straight edge
  • Marker
  • Painter's masking tape
  • Duct tape (optional)
  • Drop cloth
  • Medium grit sandpaper
  • Tack cloth

Steps:

  1. To remove glass panes, pry away molding that is holding glass in position, then scrape away putty to loosen glass pieces.
     
  2. Sand surface of frame smooth with medium grit sandpaper. Wipe dust from surface with tackcloth.
     
  3. Paint both sides of frame with Make It Stone!® spraying with several light coats. Let dry completely.
     
  4. Apply Make It Last!®. Let dry.
     
  5. Lay frame right side down on flat surface. Carefully position pre-cut mirror panels into frame openings with mirrored side facing down (can have panels cut at hardware store).
     
  6. Cut foam core or cardboard to size of frame openings and place over mirrors to hold panels in place.
     
  7. Use a putty knife to slide glazing points into frame, securely holding cardboard and mirror in position (option: after inserting glazing points you can also add duct tape around seams for extra security).
     
  8. Turn frame over with mirror side facing up and mask off a border in each pane. Spray with Frosted Glass Finish and let dry several hours or overnight. Remove masking tape.
     
  9. Attach window hanging hardware to backside of frame (2 screw-eyes and picture hanging wire).
