Quick Tip #24: Old Doors As Mirrors

{click to enlarge}

Part two of our little Décor Quick Tip series on awesome things to do with old reclaimed doors…

#24  Repurpose old salvaged doors by transforming them into quirky mirrors. Browse flea markets and thrift stores for doors with lots of interest – moulding, recessed panels, carved insets, or rustic textures like flaking paint all add tons of character. Lean it against a wall to serve as an awesome full-length mirror or mount it on the wall horizontally to create an attention-grabbing focal point!

  1. I love the idea of using an old door as a mirror. Frankly, I am crazy about giving anything old a new lease on life. 🙂 I have re-purposed two old Oregon pine doors, that were from an old farm house in the area that has been converted into a lovely home. I use one as a table in my studio and the other is mounted against the wall. as ‘art’. 😉
