Secret door and mirror

My neighbour put up an extention and wouldnt let me fix anything to the wall, so I put up a door in front of it, where I have roses growing around now. this year I added a mirror at the fence to block out neighbours lol!

What miserable neighbours. But you win hands down, because the secret door and mirror look fab - much nicer than their horrid extension. Jx

I did have the mirror balancing on a plinth at the back to the door so that if any nosey people opend the door( yes it actually opens) they would see themselves lol..however it wasnt very stable and I think it looks better where it is now..hides me another little bit form that neighbour. Oh god I wish I stayed in the country with no dam neighbours!

Neighbours can be such a pain! Luckily we have pretty decent ones, one side better than the other but both o.k.!! Sorry you have misery ones :( You've made a great job of that bit though - looks great. Is that where the Handel is?
