DIY Mirror Makeover ideas
Mirrors are stylish additions that make any room look larger. Take a plain, frameless mirror and give it an extraordinary makeover in no time at all.
Create a mustache mirror
As you probably know, fake mustaches are all the rage right now. Everywhere you go, you see mustaches on T-shirts, the fake mustache-on-a-stick, even temporary tattoo mustaches. From the natural mustache to the handlebar style to the Fu Manchu — mustaches are on everything from greeting cards to glassware to mirrors!
You can create your own whimsical mustache mirror with a simple stencil and some black nail polish. You can use everything from a pocket compact mirror to a large bathroom mirror. You simply find your favorite mustache style stencil. You can get mustache stencils on Etsy and from other retailers, or you can make your own.
Quick tip: If you don't want to take the time to make your own stencil and polish the mustache, simple buy one of these mustache mirror clings (Amazon, $7).
Frame it with nature
Bring the outdoors in by adding natural elements to frame your mirror. You can do this in a number of ways, but the easiest is with assorted twigs.
You simply measure your mirror, fill out the MirrorMate order form, pick your frame style and color, and then a custom frame kit is shipped to you. Adhering the frame is easy. You don't even remove your frameless mirror from the wall. You basically just spread the included glue onto the corner joints, push in the connectors, peel the backing tape and press on the frame. Voila! A fabulous mirror makeover without any trouble at all. You can shop by frame style, by color or by price. Their lowest cost frames average about $158 for a 3 x 5-foot frame.
