I have this list of projects to do around the house, you know, the never-ending one. Well, one weekend my husband & I decided to finally bust out one of the projects. Okay, actually I kind of *convinced* him that it would be a good idea. It worked out pretty awesome though, because the finished product is better than I expected. Inspiration & tutorial for this project is found here at Full of Great Ideas.
Here's the low down on how we made our framed mirror--
mdf board--measure your own mirror to determine how much you need
Trim--chose whatever you'd like to add to the mdf board
Miter saw--or other saw to cut your board & trim
This is what our mirror looked like before we started
My husband got to work cutting all the pieces, gluing the trim on, then priming & painting them. Once that was finished, it was time to install.
We found that liquid nails AND double-sided tape worked best to make it very secure.
My husband caulked it afterward to make it look even more precise. We switched out the light fixtures as well--which was MUCH needed. :)
And while we were at it, the other bathroom needed a mirror upgrade as well. :) It still needs the light fixture replaced, but we will get to that soon.
There you go, pretty easy right?! And what a difference it makes. I'm kicking myself that we didn't do this sooner.
