DIY box frame mirror

As the kids are on spring holidays, I didn’t have much time to craft. Using power tools with kids around is a bit risky, so we make cakes and eat them 🙂

A few weeks ago I build this frame mirror. I’m so happy how it turns out and the big difference it makes in the downstairs bathroom. It’s quite simple to make, be sure to check the full tutorial on Bob Vila. The lower part of the frame make a nice little shelf to store products and I also like the little plant I hanged into the frame!

On the left you can see our previous mirror, it was too small and didn’t really fit…but I had it on hands when we move in so I just hanged it. It looks so much better with the new boxed mirror. Here is an other good thing about building the frame yourself, you can make it at the dimension your want. I first cut the mirror to the size I wanted to fit in my bathroom and then build the box.

I think a framed mirror can also be a great addition to an entry hall, you can leave your keys and sunglasses on the bottom board. Or you can also hang it in the bedroom,  you can add a few hooks on the top board to hang necklaces and display some small containers on the lower board to store rings and earrings.

Tell me, where would you like to hang your boxed mirror?

Pin it for later!

    Sure do love your boxed mirror, want one so can put little goodies on bottom of mirror (among other things).How you hung plant looks really nice. Is that a real plant or faux?
    Noticing some other posts I need to take a look at, look interesting. Want to see how you hung a printable, always good idea to have other ways for something different on the walls.
    Have great week

      Hello Jane Ellen, I first put a real plant but I was to afraid to forget to water it so I switched it for a faux succulent 😉 less worries, I just have to take the dust off once in a while!
