Ideas to Recycle Rustic Bathroom Mirrors

Sep 30th

Rustic bathroom mirrors – In many homes, obsolete bathroom mirrors are thrown into trashcan or donated to secondhand stores. Instead of throwing out your old mirrors, utilize them by reusing them for new projects for the home; because big mirrors are expensive, you can save a significant amount of money by recycling them.

Break traditional rules, and use your old rustic bathroom mirrors in an outdoor space. Mirrors work especially well in the garden where the reflected plants and flowers give a sense of a more lush space. Hang the mirror on a fence, and put a flower box in front of it to create an impression of a window through the fence, which is especially effective in a very small garden. For an illusion that will make passers see twice, remove the frame. Mount the mirror on a steady wooden stand and place it in the middle of a garden. The mirror will reflect the plants around it, and the frameless appearance will make it seem to disappear and pop up again, depending on the viewing angle.

If you’re not superstitious, make a mosaic of an old rustic bathroom mirrors. Break the mirror, using a hammer and a metal spike to control the lines. Try to break the glass into an interesting pattern with a variety of large and small pieces. Find a piece of light wood that is slightly larger than the original mirror, and paint it a solid color. Arrange the mirror plays on the board and leave a space in between so that the color is visible. Glue the pieces down, and hang the mosaic on the wall for an interesting, broken reflection.
