Mirror, mirror on the wall



We (I) really needed a full length mirror in our bedroom. I wanted a pretty one too, but the prices were in the hundreds. So I took an old bi-fold door, some left over trim and a cheap ($1.00) garage sale mirror and went to work. I removed all the door hardware and glued and clamped it together. I had to cut one side down as it was longer than the other. Then I miter cut the trim molding and nailed it to the door. Using mirror mastic I mounted the mirror. After priming everything I painted the molding/trim in left-over silver hammered metal paint and the rest in white. I took a stencil and some drywall mud and made a raised leaf and vine pattern all over. This got glazed in a metallic silver. I mounted a French cleat to the back for hanging. Done, and I really love it, so pretty and only cost me about $12.00.
