I needed a full length mirror. I was in college, living in an old, ugly studio apartment. I found a full length mirror on the side of the road, next to the dumpster. I let the mirror lean against the wall for a few weeks, and discovered that I could not see my entire body. I couldn’t check out my complete outfit! Not a good way to start the morning. I did, however, like how the mirror was at a slant (it made me look skinny:), so decided against putting the mirror on the back of the closet door. How can I solve all of my full length mirror dilemmas on no budget?
This is when I discovered the Habitat Re-Store. They have them in most big cities all throughout the U.S. These places are great for inspiration. They always have something useful and awesome, it is a crafters heaven! The store always has tile, chandeliers, doors, windows, shutters, wall paper, paint…I think they usually get their stock donated from building projects that had leftover supplies.
I found an all wood, door for $5.00. F.Y.I–A lot of doors are hollow, for this project it really doesn’t matter– I painted the entire door blue and the frame of the mirror. Next, I bought double sided sticky tape, and attached the door to the mirror. This is a great “vanity” for people living in small spaces and for people who don’t mind sitting on the floor! VOILA. DONE.
