    I love the sunburst mirrors, they will open up a room not to mention beautiful.

    I love the ideas you have given, I have a large older beveled edge mirror I got passed down to me when my grandma passed away. I would estimate it to be about 3’X4′, it has no framing to it, just a small beveled edge. I am looking for ideas to use it in our home? Would you or anyone happen to have any suggestions? I thought about hanging it in our bathroom, but it’s small, and I’m afraid it would be too big and obnoxious. I would love to have it in our living room, but would like to frame it, or dress it up in some way.

      I would glue beads to the edges..maybe 3 rows of beads….or maybe pearls?

    I’ve just come across your compact mirror mirror! Yes, you are brilliant! However, I’m not.… I’m confused about the board. I’m guessing you placed compacts on the board then traced them, then cut board?

    And the compact mirrors – one magnified and the other not? I cannot tell from the pics of finished hanging mirror. They do appear to be compact mirrors, correct? I so want to make this!! Even though I try to avoid looking at myself in mirrors, I do absolutely love the beautiful light and illusion of open space.

    Thank you so very much for your help and your brilliant creation!!
