Easy Custom Mirror

Place one side of a large heavy mirror on the floor and attach the upper part of the mirror to the wall to prevent the mirror from tilting forward.

Want a custom sized mirror at a fraction of the cost? Picture frames come in thick and thin varieties, all kinds of finishes and colors, as well as lengths…some as long as 8 feet.

Here are some easy tips to create one for yourself.

  • Visit your neighborhood frame shop. The independent owners love to work on creative projects.
  • Select a frame or combination of frames to meet your size and design requirements.
  • Ask the frame shop to install a mirror instead of the clear glass in your frame.
  • Then hang the framed mirror with picture hanging hardware!

If you are creating an over-sized floor standing mirror,  ask the framer to provide additional vertical or horizontal bars for support into the back of the frame, and connect it to your wall to keep it in place.
