I really wanted to build a mirror frame for our master bathroom that had the look and feel of driftwood (so hot right now). I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this project was. I was especially happy about the fact it didn't require any nails or screws, just mounting tape.

I started with these pine boards that I treated with a concoction of vinegar and steel wool followed by a few coats of liming wax. See the post for a link to that process.

I replaced the outdated two smaller mirrors in the bathroom with one large one that was collecting dust in the basement. I attached the mirror to the wall with nothing but mirror adhesive.

I taped the top corners of the mirror to keep it from falling while the adhesive set overnight.

I used my miter saw to cut four pieces for the mirror frame. I stuck the pieces directly to the mirror using outdoor mounting tape.

I added a piece of decorative molding to the top of the frame. The corners of that piece were adhered using wood glue.

    That wood finish is lovely, Susan. Just beautiful. And I'd never heard of outdoor mounting tape. I'm going to go to the Scotch brand website and do a little research. Lots of possibilities for such a product. I'm really hoping it might be removable

    I would definately do the cabinets. But, it's the molding around the mirror sure does make a huge difference....very nice.

    Beautiful bathroom! The vanity needs to be painted to match the mirror frame.
