Reuse & Repurpose: Reflective Solutions

If you're looking for a unique mirror, thrift stores are filled with reflective solutions, even if they were never meant to be framed and hung on a wall. When New York's Taryn Cardin got tired of not being able to see herself in a full-length mirror, she headed off to her local Housing Works where she found a door from a discarded armoire that did the trick.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!

  1. Nice re-use of an armoire door, this works beautifully! I'm on the prowl for something simular for my bedroom. Thrifting gods, please send me a cool vintage standing full-length mirror.

  2. Love Housing Works! Not only do you get quality, high end items all proceeds go to support homeless folks and those with AIDS. Win Win.

  4. Great idea, love it ... I've picked up orphaned incomplete vintage pieces before and married them with each other making a fabulously frugal piece and nobody seems to realize it wasn't made that way.
