Framing a Mirror with MirrorMate: Giveaway

{Giveaway is Closed}

The winner is #112:  Shari!  Congrats, Shari, you have been emailed!

With all the things to update in this house, it’s been fun to get some help from MirrorMate on my guest bath mirror.  You know how it goes.  Those large plate glass mirrors that are all over the place, with not a lot of personality.  I have framed my own before and they turned out nice, but it’s also great to have a professional frame go up on a mirror too.  It totally transforms the space.

I’ll do another complete post on this bathroom later, but wanted to share the MirrorMate opportunity with all of you now.

I got to choose a frame from MirrorMate and they shipped it to me to install.  And installing a frame from MirrorMate is very easy.  For a large frame, you will need two people to help hold it in place, but the frames go together very easy and fast.

frame from MirrorMate

It comes in a box in 4 pieces.  Once you measure your existing mirror, you send those measurements to MirrorMate, along with your frame choice and they will cut the frame to exactly fit your mirror.  The frame sits on top of the mirror, overlapping just slightly to completely cover the mirror.

putting frame together

Lay out all 4 pieces on a protective rug or cardboard.

add inserts and glue

It comes with glue and corner anchors that go in each corner of the frame to hold it all together.  Notice on the frame above, there is double sided extremely sticky tape that is already on all the pieces of frame.  Once you get ready to put the frame up, there are also cardboard corners that help with setting the mirror in place before the tape is pulled and ready to adhere.

wipe excess glue

Once it’s glued in the corners, simply wipe off excess glue and let it dry well overnight and then it’s ready to put up on your mirror.

My dad came over to help me get it in place, cause with a mirror this big, you really need 2 people to hold it.  Pull off the protective paper from the sticky tape all the way around and simply place it over the mirror.  It’s stuck and will not come off!  There are also protective cardboard corner pieces to help with installation too.

Tribeca Frame

Now you’ve got a beautiful framed mirror.

Yippee!!  MirrorMate is giving away to ONE of my readers a mirror frame of your own.  I’m so happy to be working with them and to get a beautiful frame for my bathroom.  This one is called Tribeca and it’s a gorgeous black finish with small beads of silver all around the inside edge.  Perfect complement to my bathroom.

I’ll show you the whole bathroom soon too!

In the meantime, leave a comment telling me which bathroom you’d love a frame for and which style and color you think you’ll pick?!  Go to MirrorMate to check out all the styles and come back here and leave a comment. 

That’s it!  I’ll choose a winner in a few days.

Note:  I received a free mirror frame from MirrorMate, but was not paid to do this post.

  1. I need to take care of the mirror in my daughters’ bathroom. I would choose waterside in pearl to go along with the beachy feel my oldest daughter wants. Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I love the Bellemeade Traditional Cherry… it would match the cabinetry and add so much sophistication to my main bathroom.

  3. We’re remodeling 3 bathrooms at once (I never claimed to be smart), so I could use a MirrorMate for any one of them. I’d probably pick the Tribeca Black for my powder room – I think it looks really sharp!

  4. Debbie Wilson says:

  10. I think I like the Cherokee Mocha Walnut the best.
    Happy Holidays!

  11. The large mirror currently in the bathroom doesn’t have a frame at all…and it’s soooo ugly. I like several of the frames, so would have to think about it — but the cherry one or the pearl finish might win out.

  12. Pebbled White Portage!! For my downstairs bathroom. I painted it years ago with a great wisteria growing up a wall. Very gardeny and this would be awesome!!

  58. Leslee in TN says:

    Awesome look for your BathR mirror! I have ordered and installed three large frames for my bathrooms from Mirror Mate this past summer-fall and can vouch for them too! Turned out great, and looks so much nicer on all my flat, plain, ugly plate glass mirrors stuck to the walls! Glad to read your post on these as well… these frames seem to be becoming more popular as people learn about them.

  59. After seeing how easy you made this look, we just ordered three 4″ samples. My favorite is the Cherokee Cherry. Your bathroom looks great!

  60. I want to match my bathroom faucets to the mirror frames. The Broadway Brushed Chrome Slim would look spectacular!
