For the mirrors, I simply measured the window panes. I went to a glass place and had them cut the windows. Then I went to OSH or anyplace like Lowe's or Home Depot and I bought adhesive that is suitable for automotive use. I suspect that is why the mirrors are still attached to the regular glass panes that I started out with. I purchased the appliques at The Bella Cottage click here. I attached the appliques with two-part epoxy glue.
After Steve repaired the frame where there was slight damage, he painted everything in a deep gray. Then we used a creamy white. I wanted these to look old and chippy not new and fresh. I made him resist the temptation to sand the windows before painting them. This guaranteed the paint would not stick everywhere.
After all the painting was done, I sanded all the wood back, then took a razor blade scraper and went to town. I love the end result. Using mirrored windows can really open a space and give it charm. I recently wrote a post on our patio windows click here. You can see how beautiful they made our patio.
