This is the first time Ive found a mold with shipping labels still attached.
The mirror is secured to the mold with a bead of adhesive caulk.
So cool...!
The original mold section number...
...and metal parts tag.

An old foundry mold and a piece of mirror, both found at the flea market this past weekend, add a touch of industrial without going overboard.

Jim, your creations are not only functional..and can be used in any kind of decor...but EVERY thing you create is more then nails and glue...it comes from your heart..and that's what makes you different...when you put your heart and soul into making something for someone..there is nothing else like it..and when the person receives your creation....it will be a family heirloom for years to come....

outstanding job!

Bec, I did cut the mirror. It's a little jagged but ya can't see it anyway.

This looks like an easy, peazy, oh so cool project. When you can achieve coolness quickly it's even cooler. Does that make sense? Love!

Take care,
