DIY- My Mexican Mirror

This post is dedicated to Sundeep aka Designwali for making it possible. 

A few months ago I won a giveaway on Designwali and I promised Sundeep I'd write a blog post on it. It has taken me a few months to get around to it as I had to wait for my parcel to arrive from Mexico. Got you curious as yet? My dresser needed a mirror and I found this on CSN.


Plain ole' black and me? Nah!

So a tube of epoxy, some ebay-ing for Mexican Talavera tiles and glass mosaic tiles and I transformed it into this!

What do you think ladies?

The rest of my weekend was spent shopping for and with some SHP readers at my favorite store

I am linking this up to some wonderful blog parties:

This is so beautiful. What a transformation. You should start wearing a halo around your head for being the goddess of DIYs. How did you stick those tiles, arent they heavy to be there with some glue.

Sound Horn Please said...

@Pree- You are the only to ask that question- delighted! Yes, the Talavera tiles are heavy terracotta tiles. I used some industrial glue and then loaded heavy coffee table books on the tiles and left it to solidify over 3 days.
