DIY Driftwood Mirror Frame Without Nails or Screws

553K Views
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I replaced the outdated two smaller mirrors in the bathroom with one large one that was collecting dust in the basement.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.

    I did this but used molding pieces made of plastic or urethane, something like that. Looks beautiful, doesnt need painting and easy to clean.

    Love it. Have the same big mirrors left with naked edges that look so plain.

    Thank you 😊 for sharing details.

    One question- did you bevel the siding and flush it up next to the mirror or did you glue siding. to mirror?

    Really headed toward the Louvre I'd say. I 'like' it. If it were mine though,
    I'd paint the vanity a banker's gray, then do "Paris" stenciling atop the
    paint here and there, or try a Japanese great but sparse cherry
    blossom design.
