A wonderful idea if you want to make a mirror frame that looks rustic is to use pallets. You don’t have to build the frame from scratch, if the mirror already had one. Just one pallet wood to frame it. Cut four pieces of wood, arrange them and glue them to the existing frame and mirror.. Then use nails to keep them in place. With this method you can also adjust the shape and size of a mirror without havign to cut it. The best way to get a rustic look is by using weathered wood. To build a mirror frame similar to this one, use 4-6 mirror clips and some lumber. Cut the wood pieces and screw them together. Check to see if the mirror fits and then mark where you want to add the clips. Attach the clips and make sure they’re not too tight.
Once you cut the board to size, set the mirror in the middle and measure and cut the trim pieces. Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.
