Modify Framed Mirror for Picture Frame

Sometimes when shopping for a picture frame, you may come across a framed mirror that would work perfectly, and often at a better price than the frame alone.


To modify a framed mirror for your picture or artwork, simply remove the back, place a piece of glass in first, and sandwich the item to be displayed between the glass and mirror before replacing the back.

Another method is a piece of double-sided tape can be used to adhere the item to the mirror. You end up with an interesting floating piece of art with a mirrored border.

You can also have matting either along the inside edge of your frame, along the artwork itself, or floating between mirrored edges to achieve the look you want. For additional interest, there can be cutouts in the matting, as well as, even lettering, look especially attractive with the mirror set in behind. With this floating method of framing, you aren't limited by the size of the artwork or picture.
