I just finished four panels of windows I found at the salvage yard. They were already painted white so we just freshened up the paint job and added some pretty appliques to the very top.
The most economical place I have found to cut my mirror is Lowe's. Did you know they cut glass and mirror? I never knew that until very recently. It was super economical to have them do my mirror cutting since I paid a little more for these panels than I usually do. I use an automotive glue. It's very strong and can stand up to heat in case you want to use your mirrored panels outside.
I used Amazing Goop Automotive glue on these mirrors. Be careful because some glues will eat the silver off the back of the mirror.
Now don't take the glass out of the windows. You will use the glass as a base for the mirror. Just goop up the glass and place your cut piece of mirror right on top of the glass. Make sure your window is laying flat when you do this and you will want to keep it flat for a few hours until your glue sets up. We use saw horses for ours but a table would work just as well. Notice on the following picture, I painted the back of the window panel. Just paint right over the glass. This way you won't see the ugly glue marks and the back of the mirror. Should you decide to hinge two panels together, you could even use these as a room screen. I have done this mirror technique on French doors as well. Makes quite an architectural statement and reflects your room beautifully.
