I like how they look like they are open. They really do look like windows. Awesome job and thanks for sharing on the junk forum! I'd love to see it once you have the planters done.

I am TOTALLY in love with your rock/wood wall/fence!!!

Great mirror art! Love it! And with a wall like that, you can add to it for many yrs! (if you wish). TFS! Jeanne S.

You did a great job of making them look like windows, hope you will paint the plywood that is backing the mirrors & seal edges well, plywood is glued wood & will come apart out in weather unless you seal edges & back with paint so moisture can't get in. Will make your wall really lovely & full of personality. Jan

Thanks for the good advice, Jan. I will do that before I hang them.

Looking forward to seeing them mounted. Great idea with the open window look. I'm hoping to introduce some mirrors to my garden eventually. Thank you for the inspiration.

I hate to be a spoil sport here and I'm hesitant to write this because I'm not a regular here. I love the look of mirrors in the yard, but they are dangerous to birds. They can fly right into them. Just something to think about.

Mscsippy, that was the first thing I thought of when I first read that someone put a mirror in their garden. But I keep reading time and again that people who have mirrors in their gardens never have a problem with the birds flying into them. The worst problem they have had are birds who preen in front of them. Birds must be smarter than we think.
