I am excited to show you how to frame a bathroom mirror. It is the perfect way to turn a builder grade bathroom into something special!
Framing a bathroom mirror gives a lot of bang for your buck and really doesn’t take a lot of time. You guys can totally do this in an afternoon and for around $20.
1×4 pine boards (add up the width and length of both sides of the mirror. I needed 2- 8 foot lengths)
Screws or Hooks to hang the mirror
Stain and Polyurethane
- Measure the width and length of the mirror.
- Cut the boards at a 90 degree angle, with the measurement on the long side of the angle- for instance, if the mirror is 60 inches long, cut the board ends at 90 degrees from the long side of the angle to the other end.
- Stain and poly the wood.
- Use wood glue at the joints to create the frame.
- Secure the joints with brad nails or staples.
- Hang the frame on the mirror- watch the video above for an explanation on hanging.
I hope this is helpful to help you make your bathroom more custom and fit your style. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below.

If I want to change the bathroom mirror frame color, then how can I?
Natalie Dalpias says
Paint or stain before installing. Should be pretty easy!
I love the bathroom refresh. Did you buy or make the matching shelves and towel holder?
Kristina Lambert says
It’s amazing how much better a framed mirror looks! I love that you distressed the wood before you stained it
