When Shelley’s parents gave her their old double vanity mirror, she immediately knew she wanted to transform it into a full length floor mirror for her living room. After living with the mirror in the garage for months, she finally got the supplies (and the truck) necessary to complete this creative DIY project.

Shelley used plywood, trim, and crown moulding to transform this free vanity mirror into a centerpiece for her living room. Best of all, no complicated construction skills or equipment are necessary for this high-impact project. As Shelley herself mentions, mirrors like this are readily available at local ReStore and on Craigslist, making this an affordable project for any DIYer.
