Antique Inspiration: Antique Mirror

I am a huge lover of antiques. I am always inspired by what I see. One of our products, the Antiquing Mirror Kit, allows you to create your own antique mirror. I hope you inspired by these real antiques to make your own antique mirror!

A Pair of George I Style Mirrors
These mirrors were made in England circa 1900s
Their sale price is $24,390
Now you could get 2 pieces of mirror cut,
then use the Amy Howard Antique Mirror Kit
and voila, you have your own antique mirrors!

Hollywood Regency Style Mirrored Vanity
This vanity is from US dating back to the 1950s Hollywood Regency style
This piece is on sale for $6,500
Now again you could find your own vanity or piece of furniture to cover in mirror
You would have to measure and cut your pieces of mirror
then proceed to antique the mirror to your desired ware
then you could glue the pieces to the piece of furniture for the finished piece!

Pair of Black Lacquered Night Stands/End Tables with Mirrored Tops
These Mid-Century Modern nightstands or end tables have gold hardware & mirrored tops
The pair is on sale for $2,800
For these pieces, you could use the Antique Mirror Kit as well as Black Lacquer
I would suggest cleaning the pieces, priming them with the Lacquer Primer
Spraying them with 3-4 light coats of the Black Lacquer
You could then measure the amount of mirror you needed
Antique the mirror and glue it in place
