Hello there… Yes, I am still alive! Sorry for the lack of posts. I caught the all the sickness going around and have been wrestling with getting better. I think I am finally starting to feel better after a week even though I have quite the lingering cough.
I have been doing a bit of organizing and cleaning amidst resting and I can’t wait to show you some projects I did in the kitchen next week (check Facebook or Instagram for some sneak peeks) I am participating in A Bowl Full of Lemons 14 week Home Organization Challenge. It is really been helpful and totally doable – tackling 1 room at a time for the next several weeks. I am doing extensive purging this time – really determined to get our home cleared of unneeded items, clutter, and much more manageable.
I am hoping to work on a project in the bathroom this weekend so I searched on Pinterest the other day to figure out what style of frame I wanted to DIY for our bathroom.
For a reminder here’s our bathroom right now – it is MUCH improved with new paint, some pretty DIY subtle stripes, and new décor. But I have a few other things I want to do – framing in the mirror has been on my list for a long time!
Framing in your mirror is an EASY project with BIG impact. For $5-30 depending on the type of wood/trim you use and just an hour or two of time, you can make your plain bathroom mirror look much more upgraded than it is. I framed in our guest bathroom mirror – you can see that here.
But for our bathroom with the big longer mirror I really want to do a thicker/chunkier frame.
So here’s some ideas I found – which one do you like the best?
Farmhouse style frame at Blissfully Ever After
Here’s a really thick frame done with 2 pieces of trim. I love this look too maybe with a bit thinner piece of the thicker trim.
Frames don’t have to be just white. This is a very basic pine wood frame – distressed, and stained. And you don’t have to miter the corners either – you can just put them against each other like this and even have Home Depot cut the wood for you. Tutorial for this frame at A Thoughtful Place
Here’s another stained mirror frame by Shanty2Chic – this time mitered and not distressed.
Basic wood frame mirror by Young House Love
Another shelf in the middle of the mirror – this time stained and lit. Just beautiful!
I am off to buy my supplies! Which one do you think I chose?? 🙂
