Hello, all. Hope you're having a nice holiday weekend.
I'm wondering if there's a way to make a mirror magnetic, so you could display things on it with magnets.
I'm building some shelves against the upper part of a wall, supported with brackets, and will be backing the empty space within each one with mirror (about 2' X 4 1/2') to bounce light and open up the space a pinch. (Shelves won't be totally crowded, and my theory is every bit of mirror you can use ANYWHERE helps.) (I even once saw mirror used as a 5" cornice all the way around an old room, and it looked fabulous!)
Since one shelf at about eye level will hold stray objects that aren't big, it would be neat to use its back kind of like a bulletin board, and affix temporary scraps of paper, lists, postcards, etc. to it.
Could one first mount some kind of sheet metal to the wall, then put thin mirror over it, and a magnet would still cling, drawn by the metal behind? I would secure mirror with some kind of trim attached to shelves, so there would be no Mirror Mastic or any adhesive making a barrier.
This would be a neat option, if there's a way to do it (?)
