I made this hall mirror per my wife’s specifications which were size and minimum horizontal edges … that’s where the dust collects.

The two vertical pieces are cherry all held together with an aluminum frame which also provided a means to mount it very tight against the wall.

The mirror itself was cut down from an old (circa 1960’s) metal medicine cabinet

(This project was finished just prior to my first digital camera.)

Now if only we could make self-cleaning mirrors. That is an unusual design, and you definitely get points for unique. You also get points for repurposing an old medicine cabinet mirror…maybe a lot of points. And if your wife likes it, then you hit the jackpot. Not bad for a Monday morning, and Monday morning mirrors aren’t my favorite thing…(-:

My wife wants me to repurpose an arts and crafts style bar and make it into a TV stand. Now that is going to take a little imagination, and work. But it might get me points, and right now, I could use some points.

In La Conner WA after a 6 day visit with family in Oahu. Brief beautiful weather here, daffodils blooming. Snow on the ground in Alaska. About now, would rather spend more time here….

Great example! Something out of nothing! Hans and I share all the hallmarks of parents who lived through very hard time. Save everything, if you need something, make it out of what you have.
