    Hello! I have one question! The only type of mirror that you used in that project was the two-way mirror, right? I’m asking this because I’m looking to put 2 types of mirror: a two way one only for the monitor (because it’s a 17 inch 4:3 one and it’s small) and the rest will be just a simple mirror. Thanks in advance and also great project. Good luck.

    You don’t need to do that. Use one big mirror glass, place the monitor wherever you want to and make sure the entire rest of the mirror is covered with black foil, black cardboard or something similar. As long as no light from the back reached the area of the mirror glass it works like a mirror and you cannot “look behind”. Only the area which is lit up by the monitor will be see through.
