how many years bad luck??

Soooo.... some of you may remember several months ago when I showed off our thrifty bathroom update... you remember the one...

...where I replaced the little oval prison mirror...

...with a fabulous framed mirror that I scored for 30 bucks?
Yep... that one.

Well... the large beautiful framed mirror might have fallen right off the wall the other night... and it might have just smashed into a billion little pieces. Yes. That really happened. And the worst part is that I was JUST ABOUT to take the mirror down and put the little prison mirror back up the NEXT DAY. No lie. Horrible timing.
I mean, I had big plans for that gorgeous framed mirror in the new house...

...maybe over the little mantle?

...or maybe leading to the staircase?

Well, not any more. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas for craft projects involving thousands of shards of broken glass? Hmmm....

Major bummer!! :( I'm sorry for your frustration--and the mess you had to clean up. Don't envy you that one bit. Um...glue the bits of glass on a jar and put candles inside? I'm not much of a crafty person. I know you'll figure out something! :)

i'm thinking a reflective mosaic might be in order...

Oh no! I am so sorry!!!!! Only thing I can say is doing a mosaic table top out of the glass then applying a piece of glass and sealing it, once saw this and it was selling for big bucks, but I am sure its a big undertaking! Good luck, been there and done that unfortunately.

have a new mirror cut for your frame at the framing shop or glass shop and then it will be fabulous again!
