How to Build a Bar Mirror


A mirror hanging behind a bar will make the area look larger. The appearance of glassware and colorful liquor bottles are visually appealing when caught in the reflection of a mirror. There are several ways to create your own bar mirror.

  • Shop for a large, attractive picture frame. The style of the frame should reflect the architecture and design of the bar. It might be gold and gilded, or a simple oak frame.

  • Measure the glass of the picture frame. This is the size of mirror you will need. Instead of a picture, you will hang a mirror in the frame.

  • Purchase a piece of mirror the size of the frame's glass. Glass comes in varying quality and color tones. A cheap mirror may look distorted when hung on the wall. The mirror should be the same thickness as the glass you removed from the frame.

  • Remove the glass from the frame and Insert the mirror. Reinsert the stiff cardboard backing in the frame, to give added support.

  • If you do not want a framed mirror, shop for mirror tiles, which have an adhesive backing.
