Ruler Wall Mirror: Good Use of Materials? Yay or Nay?

This sweet little Before & After, DIY project popped up on Design*Sponge yesterday and at first I thought...what a cute, fun idea! But then it hit me...while it's totally adorable, it's also a terrible use of a perfectly good item, especially when I'd tire so quickly of the installation. What do you think, Re-Nesters?
