Upcycled Tall Mirror

Upcycled Tall Mirror ~ Easy DIY on how to upcycle an old 90's mirror to a more modern piece #Upcycling #DIY #Crats #MirrorReDo

We have been busy in Cheri's bedroom for the past couple of days and have actually done quite a bit already. I should say, Roy did, with some pointers from me. This upcycled Tall Mirror is the first "project" which is 100% complete.

Besides the above photo you can not really see what is going on in this room right now - actually you might be horrified !  It is dusty, dirty {breaking down brick walls are in the plan!}, the floor has not been done yet and the room would get a new coat of paint as well.

We started out with the Mirror above - this was in Cheri's room for some years now, but I needed it moved someplace else and when I post the full reveal you will see why.

For today, it is only the mirror ...

Most of what we did is explained in the above pic - I can however tell you that we removed the nicer door and "plugged" the open doorway with the old hollow-core type door, which we covered in wallpaper {you will see more of this wallpaper ;-) }, added a simple/plain homemade frame all around which we then spray painted black - same black as used on the mirror frame which was gold before.

The pink curtains, reflected in the mirror, will also disappear with the ugly floor ... in a week or two! We are hoping to finish this whole project early July, not only a lot of work, but I want some new furniture pieces {either built or new} and also change the previous color scheme, which all costs money.

The Mirror might look small in the center of the door, but if you stand about 2 - 3 feet away, it gives you a full body reflection which is what we gals want ... uhm, or not always ;-)

I think I might have overdone it with the photos, but rather too many than not enough. Lots of work still waiting in the room, but I will post any new updates or at least the completion of it all {which might make you think I have lost my mind !}
