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!
