I picked up this mirror in the alley a while ago- it is decoupaged with pages from an old "how-to" tarot card book- I used ModPodge, of course. The stars were done with paint pens and the border was painted with acrylics. There are also some micah (sp?) flakes bordering the top and inside of the mirror. Unfortunately, the mirror weighs in at around 25 pounds, so I am having a hell of time figuring out how and where to hang it!

That's amazingly crafty! I think it totally deserves a place in/near and entryway. It totally looks like u bought it at sum outrageously expensive housewears store! I am envious.  Grin There are special hooks u can get for heavy things, just look for a certain poundage and go for the heaviest to be safe....and also the same for nails and such.

Thanks for the compliments! i would love to use it as a headboard, but i have nightmares of it crashing down on my head one day...it is unbelievably, INCREDIBLY heavy! i was so happy when i was crafting with it that i didn't even think of the consequences....a beautiful crafty mirror with nowhere to go...

plus, i rent, and my apartment is wallpapered (its VERY old!) and i'm afraid of ripping huge holes in the wall to stabilize it!

That is amazing.  Maybe you could sit it up against a mantle or desk?  That might look really cool- and you won't have to worry about it crashing down in the middle of the night.

I love your mirror!  Could you get a big easel to set it on? That way you could get it to eye level without destroying the wall.
