Just because an antique platter or plate is scratched, cracked, or broken, its useful life doesn't have to end. Its patterned border can be used as the decorative frame for a mirror. Even noticeably damaged china can work, especially when paired with antique-seeming fogged-mirror glass. Cluster several mirror plates to brighten a dining-room wall, or mount an elegant platter above the bathroom sink for flattering reflections. Although our transferware-framed mirror seems to dangle from a beribboned picture nail, it's actually secured by a plate hanger.
