I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that.

Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a galze.

They, in my opinion turned out awesome and I am very happy with our mirrors. If you’re interested, I will load some photo’s

Welcome to LumberJocks. You don’t have to ask if we are interested in seeing pictures, we are always interested.

Be careful, the site is habit forming.

I am looking forward to seeing your work.

Wood is wood and re-purposing is good.
I love to see old architectural pieces and even broken or abandoned furniture made in to something different.
