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!

The Elegant Thrifter


  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.

  3. I believe ALL our mirrors are thrifted... I ♥ this one!

  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.

    Dawn... The Bohemian

  5. That is just brilliant! I love head to toe mirrors! Enjoy the lovely day, Kellie xx
