Adel Birch Door as Mirror
Materials: Adel birch door and discarded broken mirror.
Description: I took a pre-owned Ikea Adel birch 15×24 door and carefully broke the top rail of the door. (the back is more beat-up than the front) I removed the middle panel.
I cut a mirror someone had thrown away because of a broken corner and cut it to the size of the middle panel.
Insert the mirror and glue the top rail back in place.
Also, below the mirror I used an Akurum kitchen 30″ base cabinet. I actually bought this and the 2 15×30 Adel birch doors for an adult height bathroom sink. It also doubles as a slop sink in my basement.
I used some leftover granite tile pieces for the counter and an old porcelain cast iron sink.
