I’ve been meaning to do this project for a while now. We didn’t have a full-length floor mirror in our house, and my wife really wanted one (gotta make sure the shoes match the outfit, right?). Our bedroom furniture is mission style, so I wanted to build something simple that would match. I used some red oak I had lying around, and bought a simple beveled mirror (16” x 60”) from one of the big boxes for $35. I used 1/4” oak plywood for the back, which sits inside a rabbet along with the mirror, and is held in place with oak tabs that swivel out of the way to release the back and mirror (in case the mirror ever breaks). I added an easel-style stand to the back, hinged so you can adjust the angle of the mirror, and brass chain to hold the stand in place.
It was a fun project and my wife is very appreciative!
