Isn't it just so pretty!? It makes a huge difference in how the bathroom looks I think. My new MirrorMate frame definitely upgrades the mirror from builder-grade to custom! (And I really have a sweet spot for anything custom 🙂
MirrorMate is great about sending sample for a reasonable cost, so I went ahead an ordered a couple of samples first. After we decided on a frame style and color, I simple had to measure my mirror and send in my order. It was really quite simple.
Soon my order arrived and I began to put the frame together.
To assemble the frame, you simply lay out your frame pieces, place a little wood glue on the inside corners and then lightly hammer in the little black staple-like pieces into the pre-drilled holes to hold the frame together.
This is so simple and easy to do yourself! You can assemble this in literally just a few minutes!
Don't worry, the frame comes with very clear instructions 🙂 and almost everything you need to complete the job!
One thing that I love about MirrorMate frames is that you leave your bathroom mirror on the wall! This makes installation so easy!
The frame comes ready to accommodate existing metal mirror clips! If you have plastic mirror clips holding your mirror up on the wall, you simple check a box on your order form and MirrorMate will send you a kit to change those out. Easy as can be.
Once your frame is assembled you are ready to install it! You will first want to clean your mirror with rubbing alcohol and then assemble these little cardboard corner things with double-stick tape.
Use your level to place the frame in the correct location on your mirror. Unless you have a really tight fit, you can play with the placement just a little bit to make sure it is centered best for your space.
Double check that you are holding your frame level and then attach the cardboard corners on the inside of the frame. This part of the installation can be done with one person, but it is slightly easier with two people.
Next you will take the paper off of the back of the double stick tape on the mirror frame, and using the cardboard corners as your guide, you will place the frame on the mirror and press tightly to secure.
The total time it took to assemble and install our MirrorMate frame was definitely less then 1 hour! It was a really simple DIY and the results are just stunning!
We have already received compliments on our newly framed in mirror!! (And very very few people see my children's bathroom!)
I personally think it really upgrades the kids bathroom and I LOVE how it looks! I also love that it was so super quick to assemble and install! It really could not have been simpler!
Thanks so much to MirrorMate for providing me with this amazing mirror frame for our bathroom!!
