Turn An Old Window Into A Mirror

Projects to try on Apr 8, 2016

It's a fairly large window and had come from a building recycling business in our area called BRING and had cost $20 - much easier to swallow, huh? It had peeling paint and crumbling glazing around the panes, but since I wanted to use it inside these were easily fixed.
It was an easy transformation, really - here's some of the steps -head to the blog to see the full tutorial (link at bottom).

    Well, I was going for a vintagey look here, so you can only sorta see yourself in this. But I'm pretty sure applied according to directions it would work as a clear mirror - I did some vases earlier and you could easily see yourself in them. So all
