Framing the bathroom Mirror

I have had this project on my mental 'To Do' list for quite a while now..
and this weekend we finally tacked it.

Seriously, I don't know why I waited so long.. it is one of the easiest
projects to do, and really makes an impact!


I started by measuring the mirror, and then got the trim ready for the saw by
marking my measurements on the back side of the trim.

I actually had help with the cuts this go round as the mister was home
just in time.. yay!




Next up, I painted the back of the trim about halfway.  The side that would be facing
towards the center of the mirror so no reflections of the ugly back would be seen &
irritating to us later on.


We have these pesky kind of thick plastic clips that are attached to the top of our
bathroom mirrors. In deciding what to do with those, I decided to see if the mirror
was also glued onto the wall or if we needed to come up with another solution,
and thankfully it was definitely glued on... very strong and secure as a matter of fact,
so I just removed them.



Then proceeded to use liquid nails along the mirror, trying to center
where I placed the adhesive so that it wouldn't squish out either side of the trim.
Then I placed the bottom piece on, and secured it with painters tape.   After about
30 minutes or so, I went ahead and added the other pieces the same way.
I got a little extra help on this part, an extra hand holding them on was a big help
while I got them all placed the way I wanted.




Lots of painters tape later... it was time to be patient. :0)

The next morning I took off the tape, and went ahead and used caulking
to  go around the edge and corners.

Wahlaaa..




What a difference..


I am going to have to do this in this master bathroom now.

  1. I have those same little clips around my bathroom mirrors. I plan to trim the one in the guest bath out like you did yours. We are replacing the master bath mirror if we ever get to that project. I love how yours turned out...looks great! Have a wonderful Wednesday.
