Paint Mirror Back

Coat the entire back of the mirror with a layer of antique gold spray paint. This paint color will show through on the front side of the mirror, and will also protect the reflective coating on the back side from loosening further.

Reassemble Mirror

Slide the mirror and cardboard backing back into frame. Secure the cardboard with glazier's points, brads or if the frame had staples holding the cardboard in place, bend these down again.
