How to restore the appearance of an old mirror
I was wondering if there is any way to restore an old mirror. I have a mirror that is very old and it has a black spot near the center that is the size of a dime. Is there any way to fix it? Even if it is not the correct way. I would be satisfied with a faux method that would make it look good again.
Thanks for your help.

I recently used a decal design to update an old mirror that looks like the glass was etched. There are several websites that offer such decals, with a multitude of designs (e.g. animals, religious, nature). This could be a very low-cost alternative for you to give new life to an old mirror.Mike Gioa
