For the longest time I’ve been looking for a full length mirror to put in the bedroom. I either see a gorgeous mirror with a price tag I don’t like, or I see the right price but the mirror is just so-so. I didn’t want to settle. I didn’t have to.
I found the oval mirror at a yard sale for just $1. It didn’t have a frame, but I grabbed it anyway.
My first thought was to get some plywood or an old door and wood appliques.
But then I remembered I had this old barn door in my bedroom.
How could I forget that I had this? I spent a couple weeks looking for an old door.
Chalk it up to a blonde moment, I guess.
I was kind of tired of this door in its current state, but I didn’t want to get rid of it.
The backside looked like this.
I knew all it would take is a little Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
And then I could just hang the mirror onto the door.
Or rather … hubby could hang it.
And here it is now. Quick and simple.
A $1 mirror. An old door I already had. And leftover paint.
Reuse and Recycle. That’s my motto!
And some baby’s breath stuck in a mason jar that wears an old sugar sack.
Just Because. Hope you have a great week!
Love the mirror attached to that wonderful old door. I have been looking for a full length mirror, too.
What a perfect match!Don’t ever get rid of that barn door! You can do so many fun things with it!This looks so pretty!
I love how you put the mirror on the barn door! It looks perfect in your bedroom.
GREAT idea, and so much better and more original than a full length mirror too.
Just perfect! I swear, mirrors are the single most overpriced item out there! I can’t buy an expensive mirror if my life depended on it! It’s just not in my genes, I guess. I only buy at goodwill or yard sales. I’m so happy you found the perfect mirror and the perfect ” frame.”
A perfect pairing of new and old. You just can’t go wrong adding a mirror….anywhere!
That is just perfect and love the chair with the baby’s breath!!!
How creative! It is such a fun change from the traditional full length mirror. How do you always seem to have the right things on hand??? Love how you pulled it all together.
fabulous idea, jennifer! and i love that you re-worked that awesome door in the process–so clever:)
I love the barn door and it is a perfect backdrop for a framless mirror.
Everything looks so pretty. Your patience really paid off.
Just beautiful. I love the old with the new. Perfect.
Nice job mom! 🙂 love babys breath
It’s beautiful! I LOVE the idea of attaching a mirror to an old door… and what’s not to love about a great Annie makeover, too? This is really, really awesome 🙂
Great idea, Jennifer. Love the floral vignette too.
Love what you did with the mirror and old door. Looks great!

Love the color you painted that door and I think you had a great idea to put that mirror on it! You go girl.
Pretty! What a great way to layer-
Love the combination of the old door and the mirror Jennifer. The mirror is actually a lovely shape and what a bargain.
Your mirror looks lovely!
Love your new/old mirror. I have an old chevel mirror that I hate, but hate to part with. I am thinking of painting it and hanging it on the wall as to be less in the way. I now am on the look out for a neat old door to attach it to. Also love your sugar sack mason jar vase, need to do that one.
Only $1? WOW…now that is very nifty thrifty. LOVE the look of it on that charming old door.
High five, Jennifer! Way to go! That mirror is just awesome mounted on that cool door! 🙂
What a great idea to pair the mirror and door-looks fantastic!
Brilliant and Beautiful!
Great idea for how to put the “full” in full length!
What an amazing idea. Love it. So smart.
That oval mirror is a beaut and with that door, it’s even better; what a great idea. I am also really loving the blue on the chair and the wall! It’s so soft and relaxing looking.
I love how you mounted that lovely mirror on an old barn door. Perfect combination!
I’ll be happy if you check out my blog too=)
Jennifer, I’ve already told you how much I love this, but I wanted to pop back and say thanks for sharing at Shabbilicious Friday.
This is great. I also have an oval mirror without a frame and have been unsuccessful in finding a frame to fit. If I might ask, how did you attach the mirror to the door? I don’t see any fasteners.
thanks for sharing.
Beautiful mirror and way to go with finding such a deal and making really good use of it. I found you via Hometalk. By the way… I am a mirror freak. My tiny cottage house has such a dreary, dark living room (front room). One of the previous owner’s took out the living room windows (window freak too) and put in a fireplace, so it is just dismal. Thanks for the lovely idea.
Perfect marriage. The two together make the perfect mirror for your bedroom. Well done Jennifer.
Thanks for always inspiring.
What a great idea, Jennifer! It’s just beautiful, and the baby’s breath in the sugar sack is so darling. Love it!
