The magazine was very helpful, but there were some things that we guessed on. All-in-all we found the project to be quite simple.
Step 1: Sand your plywood!
Step 2: Kilz your plywood - You could also use a latex paint to match your walls!
Step 3: Cut each mosaic sheet of tile in half to form two 6 x 12-inch mosaic strips.
Step 4: Place the mirror tile in the middle of the plywood.
Step 5: Place the mosaic strips around the mirror (just to make sure they fit and to see how lovely the finished product will look!).
Step 6: Carefully remove the mirror tile.
Step 7: Put Mirror Mastic on the back of the mirror tile and place the mirror back in the middle of the mosaic tiles.
Step 8: Put something heavy on the mirror and then put tile adhesive on the plywood for each mosaic strip you have.
Step 9: Gawk at your new mirror (or mirrors)!!!
Tips and Hints: Don't be afraid to put added adhesive near the edges (you can wipe the excess off). Fold the 12 inch sheet of mosaic tile in half and measure it to ensure that it is exactly 6 inches. Learn to use a caulk gun before it's too late. Next time we'll probably add the mirror last to make sure we don't get any adhesive on the edges. Give your mirrors at least 24 hours before handling after you use your adhesives...
I'm going to strip this one down and change the color (What were we thinking with the flamingo pink?!?).
It looks like Fido got a hold of this one!! It needs loads of wood filler and a lot of love!
Check back soon to see our progress! Have a lovely day!
