No, I haven't done anything to the mirror yet. But I decided not to go with the frames idea. It sounded good in my head, but I realized it will likely look like crap in real life. My mom suggested that it might look "cluttered." That word made me cringe. Like I need one more cluttered thing in my home right now. Bleh.
SO. The frames idea is no more. Instead I will go back to my original idea of using salvaged wood from Whole House Building Supply & Salvage in East Palo Alto. I didn't want to put so much time and effort into building a frame for a mirror with scratches, but I've decided to paint on the mirror as well, covering the scratches.
You likely won't see the fruits of my labor for quite some time, but the wheels in my head are turning.
Too bad I 1) know nothing about cutting wood and/or making a HUGE frame, and 2) will have to make it in my parking spot and endure the wrath of our nosy apartment manager.
