by Jennifer
I have a large wall mirror that fell and one of the edge is broken beyond repair. I don't want to get rid of it. I need advise on how to salvage it. Something not expensive and easy that I can do myself .

    Cut it smaller?

  • Cut it down to a usable size, frame if you wish, rehang. It is not that expensive to have mirror cut and certainly safer to have done by professionals - mirrors can really splinter.

    Is it a frame that broke? Or the glass? If the glass, is it a clean break? Or is it shattered?

    A glass cutter tool can cut off the broken edge. Or take it to a window shop and the can cut it.

    I had that happen with an antique mirror - I took it to a professional glazier as antique glass is fragile. He cut the broken part off (straight across). Then I had a frame made for it. You can get a tool to cut glass - score the mirror with that along a straight edge like a ruler or straight board then snap the broken part off.

    If it's manageable take it to a professional glass/window company. Contact them first as they may provide pick up, repair and delivery service. Be safe. Best of luck.

    You can buy Pre-formed Corners used in packaging. Stick ir pin these in place on all 4 corners, then decorate to taste.

    Much easier said, than done. Take it to a glass shop. Alot safer. Mirror cuts are NO FUN.
