Is that feasible, do you think? I tried to Google a DIY for this, but completely failed. Does the fact that no one seems to have done this mean that it's a bad idea?
Kevin was suggesting that we hinge the mirror directly to the wall, rather than to the medicine cabinet -- does that make more sense? Is it going to be hard to drill hinges into the mirror without breaking it? Is there room to do that on the frame, and if I do, will it actually hold, or will the whole thing fall down? Do I need to add some kind of magnet on the other side, so it actually closes?
Is this all too crazy a plan, and I should just abandon it and buy a normal medicine cabinet like a normal person already?
This is the mirror I would ideally like to use, "Palace Window" by Khalid Ali, mango wood covered in nickled-brass:
(While we're at it, would this be a nice medicine cabinet for the powder room? For there, I'm looking for period-looking silvery metal frame, nice over wallpaper. Hmm...is that actually silvery? Hard to tell -- I definitely don't want gold-tone. I also like this one.)
