Hello Woodpeckers ! How you all are doing ? I was wondering what you guys are working on lately cause I'm into mirrors now. Had a budget for a good looking mirror but my wife suggested to build one for ourselves. That's actually a very good idea. I convinced myself to build not one but two mirrors. One for the bathroom and one is just to decor. I was looking for some beautiful mirror designs that I can work on. And there are lots of DIY mirror frame projects. The variety of design actually varies depends a lot on the frame as it carries 90% of the design.

But I came up with my own design for both of the mirrors that I'm gonna work on later. Soon I'll post the full project with instructions and design sketches. Hopefully you guys will check that out too.

So, here are some DIY mirror frame ideas that you can try. These beautiful designs were created by some great talented designers, you guys can check their other works too (I'll leave the link in the post).

Have fun guys !
