I found this door in a thrift store. Its solid wood and the glass was in good shape. 
I turned it into a trumeau mirror. 
I stripped off the old paint and sanded it smooth.
Then I added the trim.
I used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to turn the glass in the door into a mirror. Then I painted the wood.
Not bad for a $2 door!

A trumeau style floor mirror made from an old door. Just turn it upside down,  add trim and paint!

Suzanne Halverson is a Mom to five (yep 5!) with 3 still at home and she still has time to accomplish projects like this beautiful mirror. Wow! She is also a wife and a massage therapist....not to mention a junk maniac. Hmm...very busy lady! I was immediately drawn to her back to basics and straight forward approach to what we all love to do here at JMS...make something wonderful out of cast-off materials. I know you'll enjoy Suzanne and her projects and much as I have. Visit her profile page here at JMS and her blog to learn more about her. Please give a a great big JMS welcome to Suzanne! Be Well, Sue Posted: 2:05 pm on November 25th
