When the folks at MirrorMate asked me if I would like to try out their custom-made mirror frames in my home, it felt like destiny. I had already been browsing their website for weeks dreaming of transforming our vast-expanses of builder-grade bathroom mirrors.
I’ve been planning to update our bathroom mirrors since the day we moved into this house, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. MirrorMate came to my rescue!
The whole process couldn’t have been easier. A big, long box arrived on my doorstep with the color and style of frame that I chose from the MirrorMate website. You can request samples before ordering so you know exactly what you’re getting. Each piece of the frame was wrapped in bubble wrap and there was a small baggie of supplies that you need to assemble the frame.
Assembly is super easy. You start by gluing the frame together.
And then you use a mallet or hammer to pound in the little corner connector pieces.
Then you flip the whole thing over and clean up any glue that smooshed through to the front.
Now you wait. For an hour. The longest hour ever. I wanted to hang my frame!
Then you install the frame directly on top of your exiting mirror using these little placement corners to help with positioning.
Peel off the backing from the sticky strips that are already on the back of the frame.
Give it a good push against the mirror and you’re done! For real! DONE! In less than 2 hours and that included an hour for the glue to dry!
I am so in love with my MirrorMate frame. It has totally transformed the look of this bathroom. The style that I chose was the Acadia in White because it worked so beautifully with the white cabinets we have. But MirrorMate has a huge selection of styles and colors to choose from.
I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the MirrorMate frames and ease of installation. In less than 2 hours, I got a totally custom look for my bathroom. LOVE IT!
And to make it even better, MirrorMate is offering my readers 15% off any frame through December 2010. Just use the code HOUSE when you check out to receive your discount. Everyone who has seen my new bathroom mirror in person wants one for themselves.
