Antique Mirror Hack - How to Make Any Mirror Look Antique

I love the look of antique mirrors, however, it is so hard to find one for a reasonable price sometimes. Here is a step-by-step tutorial for an antique mirror hack, to make a normal mirror look antique. 

Materials Needed

krazy glue
gold spray paint
chop saw
ornament/decorative moulding

Step 1 - Cut and Paint Trim

Cut your trim at 45 degree angles that measure to your mirror. 

Then, you spray paint your trim and your decorative moulding pieces.

Step 2 - Glue Your Trim

Next, glue your trim pieces around your mirror with the glue of your choice. I used krazy glue and I have had no issues with it falling off.

Step 3 - Glue Your Decorative Mounding

Lastly, you glue your decorative moulding pieces on where you want it. I got four corner pieces and a bigger piece for the top middle.
