Update a tired, old mirror to match your décor and your personality. Check out these simple tips for making a decorative mirror for your home.

Step two:

Step three:

To prepare your faux etched glass letters, print out your desired name or phrase from your computer using the size you desire. Cut each letter out in a square. Then cut squares of contact paper and staple, right side up to back of letters and cut out (stapling helps prevent paper from slipping during cutting). Thoroughly clean the mirror and let it completely dry. Using a ruler, carefully remove the backing from each letter and stick to mirror.

Custom mirror

This mirror project can be customized to match virtually any décor. The mirror shown was customized for the resident feline aficionado, but using different colored paint, opting out of flower and sisal embellishments or placing the faux etching in a different pattern will create totally different effects. The possibilities for this project are endless!
