Acid Mirror

When I saw this acid mirror from The Idea Room, I fell head over heels! Check hers out, it's beeeeautiful! I couldn't find a mirror that size and I was unsure of what MY results would be so when I saw this mirror for less than $3 at Rescued Treasures I thought it would be a good trial mirror. Little did I know it would turn out FABULOUS!I'm not typing a tutorial because you can check out her directions as well as a link in her post with details on the muriatic acid step.

I couldn't get my mirror out, so I taped paper on it to cover it up while painting the frame.

After that I used a piece of fabric from what I already had. I love this teal damask print!

Last, I cut the vinyl lettering out with my Silhouette. I LOVE it!!

Amy from the Idea Room said it was one of her favorite projects, and I have to say I agree!

It's hard to take pictures of a mirror without reflections messing with it, but it looks even better in person.

I've got my eyes out for a larger, cheap mirror! :) Thanks for the great idea, Amy!
