What kind of woods are used to frame mirrors?
As you can imagine, there are so many different types of wood that are used in the production of mirrors. I have listed some of the most common ones here:
- Distressed wood
- Reclaimed wood
From time to time, you will also find, ash, oak, walnut, and cherry, but these are hardwood and are less seldom used as they are hard to manipulate. If you find one though, you can be sure of the quality, but of course, the price tag will be much higher.
Can I glue a wood frame to a mirror?
Yes, you can DIY a wood frame to your mirror. In this case, you need a frameless wall mirror to work with. Stripping the frame off an old mirror and gluing on a new frame is not recommended, as the area where the frame and mirror meets is likely damaged or has glue stuck, which is very difficult to remove.
Use the following steps to glue on your wooden frame:
- Prepare wood beforehand. You can purchase MDF online and then cut them to the size you need. I would recommend that the frame is glued onto the entire mirror so there is no wood jutting out from the edges.
- Optional: paint or stain your wood before gluing them on. Once they are on, it would be much more difficult to treat them. If you are using MDF, you would want to lightly sand them down (120 grit sandpaper) before applying a layer of solvent based primer. Paint with oil-based paint. Wait a couple of days for it to dry completely.
- Using a 2 part epoxy glue, apply a thin layer to the wood before sticking it on the mirror. I highly recommend Gorilla Glue, which is super effective and I have used them for many other projects around the house. To hold it in place, I suggest using painter’s tape.
- Your work of art will be ready in a day or two depending on how long it takes for the glue to cure!
