A place for everything and everything in its place. This simple storage mirror is dual purpose: it’s the perfect solution for containing that everyday clutter and includes a mirror for getting a good look of that pretty face. With Mother’s Day just around the corner this would be a perfect gift for any lady in your life.
Looking to make a special gift for mom? I’m over at Build Something sharing the free plans to make this simple storage mirror. Build Something is a great source for free step-by-step project plans with tons of DIY building projects. They have a large library of certified plans and plans submitted by woodworkers and hobbyists. Definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for free plans in a wide variety of categories.
For this project I used the Kreg rip cut to cut the plywood backing. It’s very handy tool if you’re wanting to cut plywood and boards down to size without a table saw. Check out my quick set up video and see the rip cut in action:
So slick and easy for ripping and cutting wood too big for the miter saw. I added a few simple boards to the backing and the final storage mirror project is complete:
This mirror project uses a standard 12″ square mirror from Home Depot. You can get 6 mirrors for $10 – that makes a very nice gift for little supplies cost. Of course you could use any size mirror you like, just adjust the plans to fit your mirror dimensions.
I may have gone overboard using pocket holes to attach the trim, it’s not necessary at all for this project.

Once the frame and base are painted and dry then attach the mirror using liquid nails.
Attach a wire hanger using screws at back.
Bonus this storage mirror is self standing! You definitely don’t need to hang this mirror on the wall if you prefer to rest it on the counter surface. It stands alone easily and you still have a confined storage area to keep all the goodies safe.
