Looking for decorating ideas to personalize those wall mirrors? We can customize the glass of your mirrors to fit unusual sizes and shapes, not to mention beveling it to give the glass a touch of class. Once the mirror is yours, however, you may want to try your own hand personalizing our handiwork with some of your own. Here are just a few ideas for DIY framing to get your own creative juices flowing.

 

  • Shutters

Got some old shutters hanging around? You can deliver a little bit of aesthetic oomph around unframed mirrors by using shutters as a decorative frame. Let's face it: shutters have become far more useful as a piece of decor than for shuttering the house from bad weather. So why not use them where they clearly serve no other objective other than looking good? Depending on the shutters you have, you can paint them to match your wall mirror to just about any decorative theme possible.

  • Virtual Frame

If you really want wall mirrors to pop out as part of your decorating scheme, surround them within virtual frames. Virtual in the sense that the frames exist only as decoration on the wall that cannot be held or moved. In other words, create a frame for your mirrors that is a piece of art work. You can paint frames for your wall mirrors freehand or with stamps or stencils. If you don't like the idea of painted frames, look at wallpaper border or tube lights or glue some photographs from a magazine that match the aesthetics of the mirror itself.  

  • Collectibles

A really inventive way to personalize wall mirrors is to create a frame around them made up of something you have collected over the years. Nothing particularly valuable, of course, but if you have some baseball cards that aren't worth much or small action figures or seashells or pretty much any collectible that can be affixed to the wall around the mirror without destroying its value, you have the makings of a one-of-a-kind frame.
