DIY Rustic Farmhouse Mirror

An old mirror can be used for this project — even one with broken edges; alternatively, various mirror sizes can be purchased at hardware stores. This extra-large mirror can be purchased for around $50.

Cost: $20


Two 1 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.

Mirror Adhesive

Mirror clips

Wood Glue

Self drilling screws

Wood stain of your choice


Smooth rod caulk gun

Pocket Hole Screw Jig


Below is a before picture of the mirror. It was a 5 ft. X 3 ft. mirror that was broken on two of the edges. After purchasing the materials and having my local hardware store cut the wood, I placed the mirror on the floor and the would-be wooden frame over it in order to assure a good fit.


Make two jig holes on each side of the two 1 in. x 4 in. X 5 ft. wood pieces. Then, add wood glue to each edge before using wood screws to connect them to the 1 in. x 4 in. X 3 ft. wood pieces.


Stain the wood to your liking. If you are trying to match a color or want to know how to protect the wood, refer to the Staining & Protecting Wood post.


Add mirror adhesive to mirror edges using a caulking gun. Lastly, add mirror clips.

Here is the final result.
