In reply to vinyl wall mirrors? by Christina on January 1st, 2003 08:52 PM [Go to top of thread]

should not be a problem. do you want that glass in one peice or will mirrow squares work? YOu have three options, one piece, one foot squares that you lay just like square vinyl tile, or there is that lightweight closet door mirrow that can be mated up and installed.

How to install. I would get some course sand paper and sand down the peaks on the wall where the texturing is. This will give you a better glueing surface that is smooth and level.

Then just use some liquid nails for special projects and squiggle it on the wall all over. Let it set for awhile.

Apply the glass.

Now, here is what I would do to finish it out. You might want to install the bottom board first as your glass foundation. Get your mitre saw and build a nice pitcher frame for this mirrow square. Will set it off and will look nice. Also there is molding that is routed out so that the mirrow sits in the groove and the wood will slightly protrude over the mirrow and hold it in place. The bottom frame will hold the glued glass in shape and act as a ledger board.

Do not put too much glue on the wall because if yo push the glass onto the wall ,you do not want glue to ease or ooze up between the intersections as it will not easily come off.
