Bathroom Makeover- DIY Barn Wood Mirror Frame


 DIY Barn Wood Mirror Frame

Update as of August 22nd- We are so excited to annouce that this project has been chosen to be featured at Top Reveal on 2017’s Top 17 DIY Woodworking Projects ANYONE Can Do- Even You!!! (http://topreveal.com/elegant-bathroom-ideas).

This was quick DIY project from the past weekend. Yes, I know it is more shiplap…. I told you it was migrating all over my house. On this project we used the barn wood colored trim boards instead of the actual shiplap cut boards.  Honestly, the last two projects of the Outdoor Fireplace (click to link) & Hallway Drop Zone (click to link) that we have done; this project is actually the perfect way to use up extra supplies you might have bought. For example too many trim boards during your fireplace project 🙂

So as you can see we have the standard install builder grade flat sheet  mirrors. They provide no character or interest to the space, but I do like the size. They reflect a lot of light which makes our bathroom seem much larger. I could easily rip them down and put fun individual framed ones; but because of the scale of the bathroom along with length of the vanities I felt incorporating smaller framed mirrors would not read as well as the larger mirrors do. So the decision was made to frame them out. We did this same technique in our previous home and loved the outcome. 

We measured the length and height of each mirror and decided in keeping with our rustic theme, we would blunt cut or square cut the boards instead of mitering the corners together. I personally felt like to miter cut the corners were a little to traditional and formal for my current home. Our previous home was a traditional style, brick home so it warrented miter cut corners, but we built our new home to the feel of a modern farmhouse. In the spirit of a farm house we opted for simpler cuts, which my husband was thrilled about, it made the project much easier for him. 

Once you have made your cuts all you have to do is glue the boards to the mirror. We used Liquid Nails Fuze It- multi surface, which will adhere wood to glass. It takes about 10 minutes to permanently set. We used 3M Scotch Blue Painters tape to hold the frames in place over night just to be safe.  As you can see the finished project gives a whole lot charter and interest for very little time, effort or energy. You can see a detailed DIY of this process in our Fall ORC Guest Bathroom (Click to link). Designer Tip: If you are not very handy, you can purchase pre cut frames from Mirror Mate, keep in mind that your are paying for the measure and cut work to be done for you, but you still have to adhere it to the mirror yourself.

  64. Amazing, this project is so simple and makes a huge difference in your bathroom. I can tell this will be a project in my future.

  65. The beauty of this DIY is you can use any wood or moulding, in any color or finish and come up with thousands of unique options. Thank you for blowing that design door way open!!!!

  66. This is a very unique idea, and it adds so much drama to a static basic bathroom. Your bathroom however is neither of those things, the shower along needs it’s own zip code. I wish I had a duel headed shower, it’s hard to get ready for work at the same time as my spouse, since he hogs the all the water.

  67. I have a nut store that sells all kinds of nuts and snacks. We are thinking about trying to upgrade a private bathroom to make it accessible to the public. You post makes me think I could do a mosaic in nut shells on top of the wood for our mirror. What do you think? As my go to design guru I trust your opinion.

    • I think that is a fantastic idea!!! 🙂 I really appreciate when a company owns their products, and embraces them in every aspect!!! To me that is what true design is all about, make a space your own space and really thinking out side of the box. Thanks for the sweet comment and stopping by. I will have to look up your company and place a holiday order too 🙂

  68. The rustic barn wood is very lovely and really adds a special homegrown feel to those mirrors. You have a lot of talent and creativity, I must keep up with you so I am subscribing now.

  81. I have to ask what is your flooring? Tile or wood? I just love it. Oh and congrats on the 2017 DIY Award.

  82. Your home is lovely and this project made the mirror look really good. Nice job, thanks for post.

  83. Good post I really like your ideas a lot. Maybe I can get some done in my own home.

  84. I really like this idea a whole lot. My husband and I have been trying to figure out how to make our pitifully old bathroom feel fresh and new. First thing we are ripping out the carpet, I mean who put carpet in a bathroom? Adding linoleum and repainting the cabinet. We have to strip some wall paper and see what we are left with. This will be the perfect add to our renovation. Thanks!!

    • Good luck that is a big undertaking. My parents 1970’s home I grew up in, had carpet in the bathrooms so I feel your pain. Probably one of the main reasons I became a designer…….LOL

  85. Such good idea to make your mirror feel more custom to the room. Thanks for sharing.

  86. Now this is a great DIY, because I like one that are instant gratification. Little work, big pay off sounds perfect.

  87. I have been out slinking around the net today, looking for good ideas to spruce up my home. Like my name I am a carbon copy of all the best ideas, congrats, you made the list.

  88. I take the time to write and practice my English. I see your writing on newsfeed and I like very much. Thank you for reading my letter.

  89. I really appreciate you post on this project. I hope to try and replicate into my home. Good luck.

  90. This is a really nice way to dress up a plain Jane mirror. Congratulations on being a top Diy Designer.

  91. I love this idea, so doing it in our outdated bathroom. Anything is better than nothing.

  92. I really like your writing style, excellent info, thank you for putting up good pictures too.

  93. Shoot that is so easy, I am going to try it, and make the little lady happy.

  94. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment it was extremely long so I will pair it down this time. I love everything!

  95. You’re so interesting! I don’t think I have read anything like this before. So wonderful to discover somebody with some unique thoughts on home design. Seriously.. thank you for showing us how to do this. This website is one thing that is needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  96. I love this post and the final reveal of the mirror. Such a easy thing to do yet it give the room a ton of personality.

  97. Girl you have major talent, and your husband must be a Bob Vila mines more of a Tim the Tool Man, always blowing stuff up. I am not sure I would let him in the house with an epoxy, god knows what he would glue together! LOL

  98. Your blog is now ranking very high, impart I believe it has to do with this post. I noticed the track back to a Top Reveal article which has you listed at #9 for the year on DIY. Congratulations on that.

  99. Seems like a very useful friendly project. The fact that the ends are blunt cut verses a miter cut makes it even easier.

  100. Such great project for upgrading that mirror. I also noticed that you have large apothecary jar full of bath bombs, and I have to ask are they LUSH? I love there stuff it smells so good. If not you should really try it.

  101. I rather like your blog, it shows you care for your property and in turn that means you respect yourself. Way to go mate!

  102. Your bathroom is a beauty, and the frame work only adds to the appeal. Thanks for sharing.

    • I believe you can order the Piedrafina counters in Canada. I am not sure where your local supplier would be, but I am sure you can do an internet search and find one.

  103. What is the name of that fantastic floor tile? I really must have it, because it is gorgeous. Most of the barn wood tiles I have seen are so dark and shrink up a room very quickly. I like how open fresh and clean your bathroom feels.

    • Hi Katie thanks for stopping by. My tile floors are Paraiba White, Amazonia by Interceramic. Thank you for noticing how fantastic they are since we spent a small fortune on them. When we were building, I found out that they were a level 17 at the builders design center. So your basic tile starts a level 1, hahaha so when I picked them I had no idea they even went to a level 17 which I think means 17x’s the cost LOL!!!! 

  104. Just finished reading your post on the mirror upgrade, love that barn wood or is it ship lap? Either way it is perfect for that room and dresses up the mirror nicely.

  105. Drawing so much positive energy from you and your site. I can not wait to read more of your posts. Booking marking for later reading before bedtime. Thanks for all you do!

  106. Love your blog, and this is one of my favorite posts so far. I decided to start at the beginning but my friend next to me keeps skipping around. So I know the Home Tour is coming up….. can’t wait!

  107. Thank you for such a lovely read this afternoon. I feel like I know you after reading a few of your posts. You have a lot of creative talent and I am so glad that you sharing it with the world.

  108. Whoa you have a huge bathroom, and it is sooooooo pretty. I can not imagine why you felt it needed to have more work. However it turned out nice and did accent those mirrors.

  109. Love this idea and we are sending all our support from our tribe of lovely ladies! Girl power rules all, and we need to elevate our own to the tops of the list. You are strong inspiring woman and many of of survivors are fans your blog. It’s a fun light read during treatments. So happy you made the DIY 2017 list, You are our #1, you go girl.

  110. This project deserves it’s ranking on the Top DIY for 2017, such a easy fix to an age old problem.

  111. I am in love with this entire project but what I really want to know is where did you get that beautiful makeup seat? I am absolutely in charmed with it!

  112. We make a lot of things for sale our market and pride ourselves on rustic and authentic ideas. We may just have to snag this idea, and create a ready made, milled lumber, for mirror frame outs, thanks for all you inspiration.

  113. You have a beautiful blog, and so many comments. How did you grow it? Have you ever though about doing tutorials? I would sign up.

    • Thank you so much. No, I have never thought about teaching people to blog since I am so new to it myself. I just started in January this year and I am still learning myself. 🙂

  114. The wood you have chosen for this project is so pretty. Was it it already that color or did you paint it?

    • Hi Chari thanks for dropping by. The wood we used is available from Home Depot and is already painted. They offer several colors now, and I believe this one was a Behr Gray paint.

  115. So it is my first time here, and I can say I am know a big fan. I will be subscribing to get all your beautiful posts.

  116. I have a small food blog but I have seen your stuff showing up around the blogger circles and I decided to check it out. Let me say you have beautiful blog site, did you design it too?

    • Thanks!!! I just started blogging this year, I started with a WordPress template that I customized to fit my needs. It was challenging to know what I would need since I had never been a blogger but I got lots of great advice and help from friends.

  117. A friend of mine told me about your blog, so hear I am. I really like the vibe that you are putting out, authentic and down to earth, with affordable projects anyone can do. Thanks for keeping it real.

  120. I love that you kept the existing mirror and just accentuated what you had. The choice of wood is very rustic perfect for a farmhouse. Your floors are beautiful too. Is it tile or wood? I am hoping tile that looks like wood as it is a bathroom.

  121. Great post, pretty bathroom. I really like the size and shape of your shower. Did you install that or was it part of the house? The project turned out great and make your already superb bathroom even better.

  146. This is a great upgrade for older homes. I know we have 3 of these uglies in our house that could use a fixing. So glad I found this post upon google searching barn wood mirror, you saved me a ton of money!

  147. So easy there has got to be a catch. Does it ruin the mirror? Have you even taken one down.

  148. What a great idea, we have two of these ugly builder grade mirrors in our bathroom too. They need an upgrade badly. I will see if I can get Bill to pretty please install some for little old me?

  149. Somehow I feel like I am going to see epic fails on Pinterest about this, people glueing a bunch of wood to mirrors around the world. I guess we shall see.

  150. I stumbled upon this post and I must say it ranks very high. As I was reading I thought this is the easiest thing I have ever seen, and then I thought but I haven’t seen it until now. See thinking outside the box, that’s how you win.

  211. Your bathroom is really pretty I personally love the tile. Do you know the vendor and color?

  212. I love that you have 2 vanity’s a his and her’s. Does it help cut down on getting in each others way when getting ready in the mornings?

    • We both work from home now but I am sure it would. I do remember when we both worked and only had a tiny one sink bathroom it was a nightmare!!!

  213. I really enjoyed this decorating advice on the mirrors. They turned out great in your home and look so good. You both have a lot of talent and energy to make it all happen.

  214. The little lady would like me to do this now, so thanks…not. I just over here checking out the details so I get it right the first time. LOL

  215. First let me say I love your bathroom, it is huge! The colors are so soft and subtle too. It feel like a Spa or Roman bath. Second I am in love with your flooring, God what a great color for faux wood. Not to dark and it matches the other tile perfectly too!

  216. Are your floors heated? They look like the could be…so I was wondering. I have always wanted them myself as it gets cold up here in Canada. You bath is lovely and the project truly upgrade the space.

    • No we live in GA so heated floors are not really a must have here in the south. However, I agree that up north they are fabulous in the winter 🙂

  217. Just wondering are your posts sponsored? I know a lot of bloggers are all post about product they got for free and passing it off to the rest of us and the best thing since sliced bread.

    • No this post is not sponsored, we paid out right for everything. I just listed the products we preferred using to make it happen. Actually I do not have a single sponsored post yet.

  218. Where did you get the barn wood? Our Home Depot is out and I can’t find it anywhere.

    • It was from a local Home Depot here in GA. I think you can order it online if you get into a bind. It is so popular right I am not surprised that they are out…..good luck 🙂

  255. You clearly have a very discerning eye for design. All though your primary design for your home is in the farmhouse trend, your ideas will transcend over into other style of design. This project is perfect and could be done with a gilt frame in a traditional home, seashells in a coastal home or bamboo in a boho style home.

    • You are correct, I have several ideas and posts that do that. A great example is Kitchen Island Upgrade- you can use anytime of trim, paint or bead board to achieve a custom look to match you design style. http://jenron-designs.com/upgrade-kitchen-island/ While I have based my posts on my “Industrial Farmhouse Chic” home, these DIY’s can be easily revamped to match any type or style of decor. I guess I am really just trying to release some great design concepts and ideas for all types of homes.
