new farmhouse headboard, besides the faux weathered metal letters. I was ready for something besides the wrought iron fence piece, so I started to look into circular mirrors. Well, long story short, they are expensive, and we were apprehensive about putting real glass above our sleeping heads. We had the round wooden frame, from a broken Pottery Barn clock that I, unsuccessfully, tried to repair. The mirror is actually clear acrylic plastic, bought in a sheet from the Home Depot, and spray painted with Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint.
-Cut the plastic into a circle on a scroll saw. I don't recommend cutting this by hand with a hacksaw, because the plastic is quite brittle and will snap easily. Learn from my experience on that one. We had to borrow the saw from a friend.
-Spray paint one side of the plastic with the Looking Glass paint, making sure to get complete coverage. This is actually the back side of the mirror.
-Caulk the plastic into the frame so that the painted side will face the wall when hung. Let it dry, and hang it on the wall. That's it.
