diy large beadboard molding mirror
1. Start with a standard mirror, 1/8″ MDF, bead-board wallpaper, trim [wallpaper+trim were leftover goods]
2. Cut MDF 8″ larger than your mirror so it has a nice, chunky base.
3. Apply wallpaper to edges of MDF. This is nice because you can save your wallpaper and are virtually using scraps. Score.
4. Center + liquid nail original frame onto newly bead-boarded MDF.
5. Liquid nail trim. Secure with screws behind [optional].
6. Caulk, paint, glaze.
My sis-in-law/neighbor walked in after I completed the room and said “I don’t get the wreath?” Haha!-do you agree or disagree?? I didn’t put the mirror up to look at myself while I cook, I put it up for decor only. What do you think?
- Mirror [free]
- MDF [$6: used Home Depot gift card], usable amount leftover
- Beadboard Wallpaper [free: leftover from here]
- 2″ Trim [free: leftover from here]

I love the color of the stencil wall. If I didn’t rent my house I know that one of the white walls in this house would have a cool stencil on it.
Darn! Rentals are tough, hopefully one day Deedra!! (:
Love this project because it looks fabulous and it is totally do-able! Awesome job and great tutorial. I am pinning this because my head is spinning with the possibilities of what i can do with this new knowledge. 🙂
Sorry-I think that the wreath needs to go. Just my big fat ol' opinion.
I love this project it loks fantastic and I totally get the wreath! Love it all! Great job!
Don't listen to Traci (no offense Trace 😉 I think the whole project turned out perfect! And leave the whole staring at yourself while cooking dinner AND doing a cheer or two in the mirror to me 😉
No way….that's beadboard wallpaper? Incredible! What a wonderful project! Turned out beautifully!
Love the Wreath!
Love the Wreath!
I LOVE IT!! But, I love you MORE! 🙂
Okay Kelli my dear it's time you knew…if I were stuck on a crafting island and could only choose ONE person to be stuck with it would be YOU! (ok technically speaking I would take two because we couldn't leave out Kristi!) Are you kidding me?? That mirror is Ah-MAZE-ing!!!! I'm in smitten adoration of the chunkiness and I love how the wreath ties in the brown in the room-it just totally completes the look! You are my idol mmmkay?!
BTW, I am showing this off in my Friday Finds post. 🙂 If you like to grab featured buttons I would love for you to hop over and get one.
I completely support the use of the wreath. LOVE.
I kind of have to agree with trace. I feel like the mirror is to make the room feel larger and the wreath blocks that. Its a cute wreath but Just my opinion. (like I ever have one right)
So much better than the first view! LOVE IT!
Beyond fabulous. Seriously! I adore this project! And I love the price tag. 😉 Fabulous idea!!! And I kind of like the wreath.
What size MDF (in thickness) did you use?
I think the whole thing rocks! Just beautiful!
how fantastic! I lurrve the chunky new addition & anything with beadboard sucks me right in!
This looks much better than your old mirror. I love it!
Oh my gosh Kelli, I LOVE this! Totally putting on my to-do list! 🙂
This turned out SO awesome! Love your dining room, so bright and cheery! 🙂
How cool! I love that you did this so cheap instead of going out and buying a whole new mirror. BTW…a family that we know refers to their teenage twin boys a twin & twinner. Who knows, maybe that is a common thing but it made me smile when you said it.
That is EXACTLY what the mirror needed, Kel! So awesome…and I think the wreath is PERFECT! I, too, use my mirrors for light and deco – not to look at myself…we are both so awesome…;) Your dining room is absolutely wonderful…love.
GREAT idea! I never thought of that. I may have to use this idea for a couple of framed photos instead of a mirror that need to be beefed up. I get the wreath. I like that look. Room looks great!
