Antique Mirror

I adore "Vintage" mirrors that have the mercury glass look. The only problem is these mirrors are so pricey.  I saw a great tutorial HERE and got inspired to make my own.  I used the same technique as I used in the Mercury Glass Vases.  
I purchased 9 frames from the dollar store.  Took the glass out and sprayed a light coat of Krylon's Looking Glass Spray Paint.  The next step is to mix up a water and vinegar solution. I used 3 Tablespoons of water and 3 Tablespoons of vinegar, and poured it into a spray bottle.  I sprayed this solution all over the glass until I was satisfied with the "dirty" look.
I bought a pack of wood shims and liquid nails to secure the frames together.  I let them dry for 2 days and The mirror was all ready!
