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.

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

    This would so amazing in my bathroom. I have been looking at different ways to frame my mirror but this looks the easiest by far!

  5. Have been wanting to try these. I would choose the Grandezza in bronze for my son’s bathroom.

  6. I would love to frame the huge mirror in our master bath. I would choose the tribeca in burnished brown.

  7. Would love to frame my master bathroom and guest bathroom!

  8. I love these. I’ve done my own, but I have a hard time with permanent adhesion . I’d pick the Permaquid Bronze for my hall bathroom.

  9. We’ve just finished redoing (un-wallpapering) our master bath and need so badly some frames like thee. Such a great idea and reasonable prices too. My favorite is the Mediterra Glazed Stone.

  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!!

  13. My husband and just finished painting our guest bath, I would chose the permaquid slim bronze because it goes with the frames we have. Thanks!

  14. Really like the Bellemeade Traditional Cherry Frame, Thanks

  15. I’ve been dying to frame out our mirror in our master bath. The Portage Pebbled White would be perfect!

  16. Oh, I have been begging my husband to help me put up a frame on our master bath mirror. I have the large mirror with the ugly 80’s make-up lights. Need a renovation in there so badly!

  17. I have wanted one or two of these since you posted on the previous install you did at your parents’ house. I love the Tribecca in black.

  18. My daughter’s bathroom is in desperate need of sprucing up. She is a pre-teen and we are working on updating her bedroom. Her bathroom will be the next project. All we have in there now is a builder’s grade mirror in desperate need of one of the old-world silver frames! Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. Leigh Ann S. says

    I would love to have a Tribecca Burnished Bronze with silver for my large master bath mirror.

  20. The Venetian Silver Wave for my master bath. I have have not been able to update. This would be perfect to give me a start and even if that’s as far as I get for a while it will really make a big change. Thanks for the opportunity.
