Using regular mirror glass to make a Magic mirror

  • Hi guys,

    I have an Ikea Mirror that meassures 70cm x 260cm. For obvious reasons it is to expensive to turn the whole thing into a 2 way mirror. So my question is has anyone tried removing the back paint on a regular mirror in just one corner and then replacing it with 2 way film ?

    My concerns are that the transition from the regular mirror over to the film covered part will show from the front. Has anyone tried this?

    All idéas are appriciated 🙂

    Sorry for my english.

    Removing the paint off the back of a mirror gives you straight glass. So, it would be the same as putting film on regular glass.
