I’ve wanted a chunky floor mirror for years, but I’ve never been willing to shell out the dough to buy one. I originally saw them at Crate and Barrel, but their hefty price tag deterred me. Then, Ikea started carrying them for $99. I put them on our universal wedding registry on Amazon, but no one was interested. So, I still want one. But, I’m actually glad that no one bought it for us because I recently saw something way better than any store-bought mirror could be:
You can see it a little better here:
I read that they made them from an old weathered pallet and old closet mirrors. The search was on. I too wanted my own weathered pallet chunky mirror. And, when I say the search was on, it was really me whining to Sean that I sure wish that some old wood would show up on our doorstep.
Well, it practically did. Yesterday we were out for a walk with our dogs, and our neighbor was getting rid of some wood that would be perfect for this very project. We were close to home (about 3 blocks), and I offered to go get the car so Sean didn’t have to carry it all the way home, but he picked them up and carted them back. I know he thinks I’m crazy when I find random things in the neighborhood that I make him carry down the street, but they always turn out cute, so hopefully he realizes I do have a vision. I’m not sure what my neighbors think, but oh well.
So, the wood is currently sitting in our garage, but as soon as I finish this project, I’ll show you how it all came together!
