Mirror (Vintage Photos) Mirror on the Wall

One $2 Goodwill found mirror . . .
mirror's back

Print out old family photos.  If they aren't already black and white or sepia toned, change the color of the photos before printing.  No inkjet - use a laser printer or print at a store like Kinkos.

Trim photos to fit the mirror border and attach with adhesive.  Add old buttons, watch parts and scraps of leather with E6000 . . .
Cover the mirror and apply matte decoupage over the bordered photos and you're done! . . .

It is beautiful, Sherry, and so meaningful too.
I'll be on the lookout for an old mirror now, for sure.
