Here's a mirror that my sister was getting rid of that is going to turn into a table.
I added lace with white glue, and then added a bead of hot glue along the bottom to keep it in place. After that, I did two coats of white acrylic paint, and once the siding is all the same color it kind of imitates the look of intricately carved wood. It even kind of hardens.
I glued it onto a cork, put my skull vase on top for decoration, and the end! Happy arting!
