DIY – Personalized Mirrored Frames with Monogram Letters

The Plan: Create two personalized mirrored frames for either side of the bed. I decided by adding wooden letters it would create a 3-D effect and have more impact.

Watch the video for more details.


I purchased two frames which are nearly identical from the Rosebowl in Pasadena for $10. Then sanded them down to create a “clean slate” for staining. Next, I ordered two wooden letters from Craft Cuts, where you can choose the height, width and font of your letters.


Ready for staining, I taped off the interior rectangle to stain the outer frame with Cabot Stain Ready Mix in Ebony. The interior rectangle was stained with Cabot Polystain in Dark Oak. I wanted a two tone stained frame. The letters were stained Ebony. I had mirrors cut and inserted into the frames. I hung the letters using leather braided cord that I purchased for $1. I attached the cord to the back, added hanging materials and hung on either side of the bed.
