Progress! Decided to go ahead with old window frame we made into a mirror. Not the best reflection but I love the character and charm!

Ideas on picture frame and old door


I know you haven't posted about the door in a while, but a simple way to mount this to the wall is to use a french cleat. See this image for a simple explanation:
http://www.brendamcmahon.com/CMS/upl..._cleat-pix.jpg

You would want to use a bigger one; say you had a 6'x1' piece of 1/2-inch plywood. Rip it in half lengthwise on a table saw with the blade cranked over to somewhere near a 45-degree angle. Attach the bottom piece of plywood to the wall with wood screws on studs - the higher part of the angled cut is off the wall. Attach the top piece of plywood to the door - the lower part of the angled cut is off the door. One piece of plywood hangs off the other, the angle holds it snug, and it's a hidden mounting system.

Here's an idea..
It's called mirror film.
It's easy to install and with a dark background it would reflect more.

As for the door as a head board.?


When it comes to entering into an agreement with your woman. That poor fella didn't have a clue, but it seems he was a real gentleman about it.

Just reading through this thread again to refresh my memory on suggestions. This is a great idea! I haven't actually put the door up yet but when I do I think this will be how I do it. Thanks again!
