We were too cheap to buy a new mirror for our bathroom (in which we repainted the floors this week—don’t they look awesomely CLEAN? :). Instead of spending a bunch on a new one, we got our janky old $10 Wal-Mart mirror, took it apart, used the glass and some of the old painted boards from Mae Mae’s house, and voila—a mirror good enough for Pottery Barn. You’d have to see it in person but it’s pale yellow with some aqua and sea foam paint showing through from decades ago. I love this thing. I owe Mr. Ben many thanks for his frustrations trying to get the 45 degree angles squared up.
