Another Mirror Makeover (& a Giveaway!)

Hello, hello! How was your weekend? My birthday weekend was divine! I was smothered with love, attention, affection and food! Well, I wasn't literally smothered in food, but I ate a lot of it. And thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes...even though we're virtual stalkers of each other, it still made my day!

Today I get to give you a BIG present! When the cool people of MirrorMate contacted me to see if I'd like to try their product, I hesitated since none of my bathroom mirrors are in need of a frame. But then I got to thinking of other ways to use their clever framing system, and decided the DIY Mirror in the Entrance Hall was ready for an upgrade!

After browsing their selection online, I decided on the Portage 18K gold. Since Liberace has taken residence here, I figured I'd appease him. The frame arrives in four separate pieces, and is fairly simple to assemble...only it's a 2-man job because you need the extra set of hands.

Once you've glued and clamped the four corners together (or had your hubby do it), pay extra special attention to the directions on how you adhere it to the mirror. The sticky strips are strong enough to keep Kim and Kris together.

If you have an eagle-eye, you'll notice our frame is a smidgen crooked...but it's not coming off now, so I guess I'll have to stop nagging get over it.

I may have added the sunburst mirror to make the larger mirror more visible, but I'm leaving it because I love the extra layer it adds.

I love how the golds in the door knobs, light and mirror tie everything together.

One of the corners keeps popping off the mirror, but I think that's more about wonky walls, and less about the frame. I'm really happy, and surprised, at the high-end quality of the wood frame. Mine is a hefty 3' x 5', but still lightweight.

The nailhead trim is subtle, but I'm crazy about the added accent.

Framing the mirror tiles really defines it. Before it sometimes just looked like a reflection on the wall. Now the Entrance Hall has more of a presence.

Since there is no room for an entry table, the wall is the only place to accessorize the space.

Here's a peek waaaaay back, after we first moved in. A lot has happened in this little space:

  91. I would use MirrorMate in our hall bath. When the painters came, I did not know they would take down the ugly attached mirror when they painted. By the time I realized it, it was too late to buy a new pretty one. I would dress-up that old one in a heartbeat!
    Thanks for the opportunity!
