A Reflection

I have been working on my medicine cabinet restoration.  I took the mirror out of the frame to: 1) protect it from stripper, and 2) clean the paint off of it.

So, I spent some time getting the layers of paint off that had been slopped over the edges.  I also started to consider having it re-silvered. It's already out, right? I may as well look into it, right?

The mirror isn't in bad shape by any means. But it is somewhat cloudy and there are some streaks.  It wouldn't be the end of the world if I left it as is.

I did find a place nearby that does re-silvering.  It looks to be a small company run out of someones home.  I have an email into them asking costs, turnaround time, etc.

We'll see.
