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 would choose Chelsea Cherry Red to match my bathroom vanity if I won. Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I’d love the chelsea in black satin for the boy’s bath. I’ve been wanting to try this for quite a while. Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. Hi there. So glad you’re blogging and using MirrorMate product. I want the Pemaquid Slim Dark Cherry (funny name). Our master bath has all white cabinets and marble and ocean blue tile and walls. I want to paint the cabinets dark cherry and frame the mirror to add dimension to the whole room and warm it up! This mirror frame is slim, yet has depth and will keep the mirror from looking flat. Hope to win. Merry Christmas to ALL!

  4. Just helped my sister remove a large mirror. Have one just like it and love the MirrorMate solution.

  5. I would pick the Grandezza Aged Silver or Pacifica Silver Sheen. The first I would probably use in our main bath and the second for our kid’s bathroom. Thank you so much for sharing this great product and the chance to win one. What a wonderful way to dress up mirrors.

  6. Bellmeade vinatge silver-i need my master bathroom done badly!!!

  7. Rhoda–I have wanted a mirror mate since I saw it on your blog a long time ago. I want one in our master bath. I love the cherokee mocha walnut so much.

  8. I would love to do the master bathroom in Pacifica white.

  9. I would like to add a frame to my bathroom mirror. I like the Acadia in white. I have the rosettes plus my miroor has tile around the bottom and up the sides 6-8 inches. Don’t know how it work around these obstacles.

  10. Waterside Pearl….would look great in my children’s bathroom which has a very large mirror such as yours……the poor bathroom is in desperate need for a makeover….still stuck in the late 60’s…….this might be the push to get us started??? !!!!

  11. I’d love to use one of these on my mater bath mirror. I love the Tribeca Burnished Brown. I can attest your mirror looks great!

  12. I think that the Chelsea Brushed Bronze would look great in our hall bath!

  13. I have hall bathroom that could use a frame on the mirror. I think the Waterside Pearl would look best. Thank you for the chance to win. I am glad to find out more about these work. Yours look so nice.

  14. I would choose waterslide. Oyster for my master bath!

  15. What a great site – & perfect for my master mirror which is a super long, joined ‘his n her’ type deal that has no frame, except for this ugly gold stripe along the bottom edge. Yikes – I’ve been looking for some nice wood to make a frame, THIS IS MUCH BETTER!!
    Cliche maybe, but perfect for my theme!!!!

  16. I have wanted to do this for SO long in my guest bath-yours looks great!! I really like the Pacifica white!!

  17. Currently we only have one bathroom, which I’ve been updating a little at a time. I would love to have the Broadway Brushed Chrome for my two mirrors above the double vanity. It would be a perfect combo for my husband and I, sleek and sophisticated, yet not too girly. I love, love, love it!

  18. These are beautiful, and yours turned out perfectly, Rhoda! I would love to do this in our master bath, and I would probably opt for the Grandezza Aged Silver.

  19. What a fabulous product! I love the Soho Matte Black for the guest bathroom. This bathroom also serves my 2-year-old son, so this simple chic look would work for both purposes.

  20. Allison Rysdon says

    I would love to frame our builder mirror with Waterside in pearl. It would be a great addition to my daughters’ bathroom. I have looked at the mirror mate website several times and has been a to do project on my list!
