Project Log -- 10 18 2015 Antique Mirror
A good friend asked me to see what I could do with this timeworn old mirror. It's an attractive piece, but it's really in rough shape. The original plywood backer is delaminating. The veneer on the front is all but ruined. So, it's going to be a lot of work to restore this and maintain its original materials.
You can get a feel for how bad the plywood has decomposed in the picture below.
The fancy trim pieces also function as mirror holders.
Well, I finished it up, but I didn't get all of the interim pictures.
A couple of look of the finished product below. Please feel free to ask in the comments if you have any questions about how it was done.
