Mirrors, Mirrors on the wall. Which is the fairest of them all?

I saw the iron wheel at an auction and was drooling over it the whole time.  When the auction was ending with them overlooking it, I said "Hey, what about that."  They said "WAIT.  We have one more thing, who'll give me a dollar for it.  (me)  Anyone for two?"... So, I got it for $1.  I knew immediately I was going to make it into a mirrror.  Initially I  didn't like that it had a flat spot, but soon realized that was even better for setting on a shelf. (As for the 100's of spindles I got all for $1., I'm stilling working on those.)     

The white mirror is also a $1.00 buy, but from a different auction.  It was a large architectural salvage piece, I assume the exterior trim around a window.  I tightend it up a bit, but basically left it as is and added the mirror.  I think it has a cottagey look.

The last mirror was just for fun, I couldn't help myself.

Sue...you've given me a great challenge!!! A car door w/roll up and down mirror??? Might give it a whirl!!! Especially if it was sentimental, like my GF's or something!

I am drawn to industrial junk so the iron wheel is right up my alley. But...you know that I have a sense of humor so the TV screen is also calling to me. I've always wanted to make a mirror out of an old car or truck door so you can roll the mirror up and down. Most people think this idea is more than a half bubble of center so I haven't received much support. Way to go Junkermidge, these are very cool!

Be well,
