Antique French Mirror Hack!

Have you ever seen one of those beautiful floor mirrors pictured in French country dining rooms. I did and have wanted one ever since, but with prices that range anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000. I will not be buying one of those. But that doesn’t mean I can’t create my own!

With this in mind I started to look for a piece to transform. I knew it would need to be tall, already have a mirror or a place to put one and have plenty of room to add embellishments. I looked on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist not really knowing what I was looking for but would know when I saw it.

Facebook Marketplace came through for me. I found an old antique closet door with a beveled mirror and to top it off the door had already been stripped. Halleluiah!

I am not going to lie, there is a lot of work to be done, but I am ready to take on the challenge. It’s what I do!

These are the type of mirrors I was talking about.

My door from Facebook Marketplace. It has a lot of potential; solid wood, already has molding around the mirror and plenty of room for embellishments.

I am going to put molding all around the outside of door to make it look like a frame.

I also purchased molds by Redesign with Prima to create embellishments using resin.

I am really excited to see what I can do with this door! See you next week for more progress!
