Framed Bathroom Mirrors Project

I have been seeing a lot of framed mirrors in blog land lately but this one was the inspiration that I needed to finally do it myself {with a LOT of help from my handy husband}. We started with our master bathroom mirror and selected a four inch wide trim to frame it out. We followed Shelley's tutorial except we decided not to add quarter round. The frame was fairly easy to make but it would have been easier if the existing mirror and walls were perfectly square. Total spent was about $50 and it was worth every penny!

I can't believe I forgot to take the contact lense case before I took the pictures!

We like how the master bathroom mirror turned out so much that we did one in our girls bathroom too! For their bathroom we selected a three inch trim since their mirror is much smaller. The hardest part about this was getting the frame to stay together with less surface for the liquid nails to stick to. It ended up falling apart a couple of times but Zak worked it out in the end. Total spent for this frame was about $25. The bathroom looks so much prettier but it will look even better after I find a new wall cabinet and do some redecorating.

Mariposa made an appearance just as I was snapping a picture!

I highly recommend this project to anyone with a plain old bathroom mirror!

I am going to be doing this in my girl's bathroom but I am also going to figure out a way to do the medicine cabinet too - it is right against the mirror like yours but I think I can frame out the glass to look like one of the PB style medicine cabinets. What do you think?
