This Vintage Mirror Upcycle takes an antique piece and turns it into a functional chalkboard door sign. Turning scratched or cracked mirrors into chalkboards is a great way to repurpose them and give them new life! Vintage mirror frames are far too intricate and beautiful to be tossed aside once they pass their heyday. This upcycle uses chalkboard paint to turn the mirror's reflective surface into one that speaks for itself. This craft is perfect to make signs for your doors, or quirky daily menus for your kitchen counter!
