Can I adhere tile to mirror?

The bottom edge of my huge mirror is peeling. Could applying a tile frame around it be a solution?

    I glued on a frame made of wood picture frame molding. It looks just like a framed mirror purchased from a store.

    don't see why not. Might want to make sure it's a lighter tile - small or maybe glass. Once you have it glued on you will probably need to tape over it to keep the tile from sliding while it dries.

    I would try silicone to glue the tiles.

    Might try that E-6000 glue. I think anything with a type of clear silicone would work and tape it on to keep it in place.

    my sister used those one inch self stick tiles, all around the mirror, it looks great!

    Yes you can. Use clear or tinted silicone to adhere to the mirror.

    Absolutely! I would use either a heavy duty construction adhesive like hard as nails to attach them with or some E6000 if that's what you have on hand. But I would use painters tape to hold the tiles in position until the adhesive it glue dries (at least 24 hours. Good Luck and post some pics when you are done so we all can see the finished product! :)

    I sctually did small ones with a glue gun. Most all held. 2 fell down and I used E 6000 glue for the two that well

    I've completed two very large bathroom mirrors recently using small tile borders. I used Loctite clear power grab all purpose adhesive - purchased at Lowe's. These mirrors look amazing! Little time consuming getting the tiles properly placed, but worth the trouble. I did not have to tape them til dried. etc. Hope this helps.

    If you really wanted to get creative, you could even get some sea shells and attach them to the edges of your mirror. Actually you could attach just about anything you want from sea shells to a mosaic of broken mirror pieces or China pieces to the edges of your mirror. Heck, if you wanted, and if the bathroom was for a child, you could even attach some crayons or dinasours! The possibilities are endless! Just have fun and get creative with it!!
