Fleetwood Med. Cabinet Upgrade

Posting here because this can be done in any motorhome. Our cabinet doors are beautiful, but the mirrors are only the width of what would be the raised panel in the door. Between mirrors you had door frame, then cabinet frame, then door frame again then mirror. Almost more wood framework than mirror. They weren't very functional.
We were out for a couple of weeks and I tried larger mirrors stuck to the upper part of the doors with command strips. In the first picture you can see the bottoms of the doors and the mirrors on the top parts.



We liked the mirrors so I made new doors from 1/2" cabinet plywood, used all original hardware and had the glass co. cut 1/4" mirrors and glue them to the doors. Now the mirror is the entire door.


The original doors were set up to act like a 3 way mirror except the cabinet maker hinged then on the wrong side so they opened from the middle instead of the outside. In the process I hinged the outside doors from the middle so hey would swing in and can be used as 3 way mirrors to see the back of your head. They are so much more functional now and a nice upgrade.

I don't need to see my ugly mug much either, but after the trial period with the stick-on mirrors, the DW said "get it done".
I also added 18" strips of led's vertically on the sides of the cabinets and they more than double the light in the mirror area. Great help when shaving. The driver & switch is attached under the bottom of the cabinet. These LED's have been in my last two coaches, I just take them out & put in he next coach.
You can see the strip through the lower round towel bar, a gray strip that goes up about 2/3 the way to the top of the cabinet rght where the cabinet meets the wall.

Looks good and undoubtedly more functional. Sneaky how you took that picture without the whole body reflection
