Cut the out a mirror size hole in the face of a hollow-core door. After cutting the cardboard away from the back side of the door I glued pine strips around the door between the face sheets. Then a 3/4 sheet of plywood was glued to the back inside face that I then doubled sided taped the mirror to. have not replace the trim at the time. I plant to place hard wood floors in the closet and the door may have to come back off the track.

Great idea, looks fantastic. Have had one for years and like that because it is in the middle the door is balanced. First design was a slide in from bottom. Worked good but wanted different style doors.

The carpet tape did not hold. I think the steam from the shower caused it to let go. replaced with a indoor outdoor double side tape. will see how that works,

It’s been a some time since I replaced the carpet tape with double side tape and I think that was the way to go no troubles now.
