For months my wife has been complaining that we don’t have a full length mirror in our house. Last night I had a full length mirror (1/4” unframed, no bevel) donated to me from my grandmother who is moving and has no use for it any more. The mirror is ~2’x5’ and will go in our bedroom.
My design problem is wood choice & finish process. Our bedroom furniture is matte black, and our bed is a very dark wrought (SP?) iron, so I would want to go with a wood that compliments this setting. There is not any wood grain in the room currently, so a very heavy wood grained piece would look out of place (my opinion). After looking over the projects posted here, I feel that walnut would be the best way to go, but I have seen a wide variety of finishes put on it causing the ciolor to vary greatly.
