I am taking a break from painting the back hall floor (primed and first coat) and came across this pin from one of my FB friends, http://knockoffdecor.com. It is a great site that "copies" some of your favorite (but sometimes expensive) decor items. There are loads and loads of projects. This is one that copies Pottery Barn's $499 barn floor mirror that I personally am going to try (as soon as I get some more tools), http://homastyle.com/wp/2012/06/28/floor-mirror/
Check back for the completed back hall before-and-after pics.
