Of course it's featured silly. It is stunning. I love all the featured projects and all the tute lists they have posted lately.

Do you think this would work with a mirror I have that is concave but has a wide basket weave.

You know, it just might work, lovesclutter! If the pieces you use are wide enough to glue onto the weave...and maybe things like button shanks or pinbacks wouldn't have to be removed. Hmm...I wonder if you could wrap strands of cheap costume jewelry pearls, ect. through the weave?
Do you want to spray paint the frame? My frame, the ceiling medallion, was already white. So I just painted the frame of my dollar store mirror with a couple of coats of white screenprinting paint, because it's what I had on hand. (that part was a pain!) And I knew the strings of bead would hide 90% of my paint job. But now I wonder how silver or gold would work. Or heck, blue, pink, green, ect.
It's worth playing around with and having fun. I did a lot of filling in with metal and glass buttons, loose big and small beads, and a few flat backed rhinestone gems with a sticky back that I had. Small pieces (an inch or two) of broken strings of pearls and rhinestones made great filler, too.
Why not try just laying some bits and pieces on it, just like it is, to get an idea how it'll look? I laid about half of mine out first before I glued that first thing, then said, 'the heck with it', and started gluing.
I bet you can make it look awesome!
Me, I'm going to hunt through the mirrors and frames at the thrift store when I get a chance, and just wait until I can find something I think will work before I make another one. I need to replenish my stash of doodads anyway.
