Updating a Bathroom Mirror

Posted by

One of the bathrooms in my new house came with a built in cabinet and mirror. I wasn’t too happy with the currently designed mirror, because each panel opened separately – making it difficult to get the objects on the shelves out. The shelving part of the cabinet was actually inset into the wall, which would make removing it altogether difficult. So instead I came up with a simple solution to the problem.

I removed the existing mirrors and doors and measured the entire opening of the shelves (allowing extra space on both the top, bottom, and sides). I then chose a frame at Studio 3 that complimented my bathroom decor. I had a 1/16″ mirror placed into the frame and chose my favorite wrapping paper as the dust cover on the back of the frame. I then picked up some heavy duty hinges and screws at the local hardware store which I used to attach one side of my frame to the wall (be sure to use molly’s if inserting into drywall instead of a stud).

With a simple framed mirror from the local frame shop I was able to completely update the look of my bathroom. The plus side is that if my taste ever changes or I redo my bathroom I can always swap out the picture frame for a new one in the future.

    Great taste, not a boring metal border or a plain color, I like it! Adds culture and flavor. DIY?
