Convex Mirror DIY

I've been wanting a convex mirror forever.  An attempt at making one was was somewhat satisfying, and you can check out the tutorial HERE

But not quite the look I was after.  And then on a recent trip around my local thrift stores, I found this clock with a convex face ~ I don't need a clock, but I do have looking glass spray paint.  $3 and the clock was in my car. 

I used painters tape to cover the wood frame.  

Using an x-acto utility knife, I cut the tape away from the face of the clock. 

I then sprayed the glass surface with three light coats of Rustoleum Looking Glass spray paint.  And now I have my convex mirror.
