You see, I need three mirrors for J & A’s bathroom, and I won’t be putting those massive mirrors back up.
I’d like something interesting, something natural, something diy-able, and perhaps something to tie in with the new door and drawer pulls.
So I googled and searched, and searched and googled some more. I found frames like this…

…and while the workmanship on that frame is really something quite special, the log-cabin-in-the-woods look is really not what I had in mind.
And then there were frames like this…

If I take away all of the little random twiggy parts, I’m left with a simple, yet natural, frame. That’s nice, but I’m still not quite sure if it’s the inspiration I’m looking for.
But then I found this…
Now that is definitely more like it! It also seems more practical for a bathroom, since the wood pieces form a flat frame and the areas between them are filled in with…well…with something. A flat frame would definitely be easier to clean, and easy to clean is important in a bathroom.
This framed mirror was once available through West Elm, but it looks like they don’t carry it anymore. It doesn’t matter. As I would need custom sizes, I’d have to make them myself anyway.
The thought seems a tad bit overwhelming. Three large mirrors. A billion little pieces of cut branches. What do you think? Should I go for it?
Or perhaps you’ve seen some nice mirrors with natural-type frames? If so, feel free to leave a link!!
