New Product: MirrorMate Frames Give New Life To Old Mirrors

mirrormate1We’re always looking for innovative ways of using glass to give a fresh, custom look to your rooms. MirrorMate Frames do just that, simply by changing the appearance of your existing mirrors. Why buy an entirely new mirror, when the old one is in good shape and is already installed?

Available in a variety of colors and styles, these wood frames are custom cut and applied onto the mirror itself. They hide the exposed edge of the mirror, as well as any hardware holding it to the wall, including mirror clips. Best of all, you don’t even need to remove the mirror to apply the frame.

MirrorMate frames can be used to accent any mirror, no matter where it’s located. They even work on mirrors where there is little to no clearance between the glass and a cabinet, counter or wall. Great for remodeling multi-room commercial spaces, they’re equally suited to redecorating your home. In just minutes that old utilitarian mirror becomes a decorative highlight of the room.

Project Spotlight: Ohr Hamizrach Congregation

ohr_hamizrachIt’s been quite a year for renovations in Baltimore’s religious community. The Ohr Hamizrach Congregation joined that list, expanding into a new building on Park Heights Ave. A lot of unique work was put into the new building, and their entryway called for something special.

They came to us wanting to create a stained glass window incorporating their logo design, name and Hebrew lettering against a frosted background. Located on the second floor, over their grand entryway, it would be the focal point of both the exterior facade and interior hallway.

This was a perfect job for the stained glass overlay process. The logo and lettering were to “float” inside the background, something impossible to do with traditional cut glass. That, combined rendering the logo with sign-like precision, required the detail and control of overlay. At the same time, the finished window is translucent, colorful and captures the feel of wispy art glass.

Project Spotlight: Parklane Baptist Church

parklane1When Rev. Pierce Keyser came to Parklane Baptist Church (on Mohawk Ave. in Baltimore City), there was a lot of glass in the sanctuary, but it was all clear. At some point in the past, the stained glass behind the altar and along the pews were all removed.

As part of the renovations in the church, his congregation wanted the stained glass restored. Nobody knew what the original glass looked like, so a fresh start was made with new design ideas.

The finished pieces are breathtaking, adding warmth and color to the sanctuary while blending seamlessly into the old architecture of the church. We’re so pleased to have helped Rev. Keyser and his congregation realize their plans to make the church a brighter and more inspirational place for worship.
