DIY Bathroom Mirror Frame for Under $10

Okay guys. If there were only one DIY project I could share with you, I think it would be this one. It is so. easy. and transforms your bathroom. Affordably. It involves the #1 thing you look at in the bathroom: your mirror!

When we were thinking about re-doing our bathroom, we started looking at new mirrors… but they were expensive! I wanted to keep our bathroom makeover cheap, so I wasn’t interested in spending $50+ for a new mirror. That being said, I hated the “builder” mirror that was in there – you know, it’s like a giant slate of mirror. It gets the job done, but it’s so blah.

As I was searching around on Pinterest for bathroom makeover inspiration, I came across a DIY bathroom mirror frame on a fun home decor blog called Cherished Bliss. I pinned it knowing it would be something I’d actually come back to later. Would you guess that the mirror above turned into this one??

Tour Through an 1860’s Mansion

Over Thanksgiving, the hubs and I went back to Pennsylvania to visit his side of the family. I literally cried when I saw fall color (I’ve been a bit deprived)!!

Andrew and Hayley in VA

It was a nice week spending time with family, trying out a few local spots, seeing more horse-drawn buggies than I’ve seen in my whole life, and finally checking out the 1860’s mansion Andrew’s family has been restoring for… a few years. 😉 As his dad says, “It seems to take forever when you’re doing things right.”

This incredibly antique mansion has been given new life since they bought it. They’re not quite done renovating it yet, but I’ll take you through my favorite parts and give a little history along the way.

The Isaac S. Long Mansion

As I mentioned, this mansion was built in 1860 by Isaac Long. Isaac lived in New York but built this “summer home” (ha!) in Pennsylvania where he could hunt and spend his spare time. I wish I could have a summer home with 18 rooms!
