My parents renovated their downstairs bathroom, and they decided to replace the plain oval mirror over the vanity so I scooped that mirror up and decided it needed a facelift. I thought surrounding it with a frame of shells would bring new life to it, and it would be perfect in our kitchen in Georgia.
I am happy with the final product. I would like to make one with small all white shells or all white starfish. Maybe for the porch?
First, adhesive. I used Beacon 527 glue. This glue worked wonderfully, dries clear and can be removed with acetone. The only drawback? It smells nail polish remover. The smell is very strong. I recommend using it in a large or well ventilated room.

This is not the ACTUAL mirror, but it identical. I forgot to take a picture of the plain mirror before I started, so we have to make do with a stand in! Its just a very basic oval bathroom mirror.

Now, here is the finished product. The photo is terrible, I know, but it is the best I can do with everything else I have going on right now! When I get it hung up in Georgia (end of next month) I will take a picture of it on the wall so you can get a better idea of just how great it looks!
Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go finish the laundry, do the dishes, and clean the house and hopefully find time to remove my half destroyed nail polish. I live a glamorous life, I know.
