FINALLY! Finally after three years I can check something off my “To Do” list and I’m happy to brag that I did it all by myself! From start to finish I framed out our bathroom mirror. While my husband was out of the country for two plus weeks I got busy trying to surprise him with a fun bathroom makeover!
Standard builder issued large mirror glued to the wall. Plane, simple and begging for a makeover!
I had to ask myself once I was done why I hadn’t done this sooner! This really is probably the simplest project with a huge payoff in the end. I love how it looks!
Molding Trim and a Miter Box
Take your measurements with you to Home Depot or Lowes. Pick out the molding you like and have the worker cut them into four sizes at least 6 inches longer then the length you need for each section. This will make cutting them more manageable.
If you go to Home Depot they will have a self serve cutting station with a Miter Box that you are welcomed to use. You can also buy a miter box for less then $10 to make your cuts at home. Lay out your four pieces of molding and measure and mark your cutting lines knowing which direction your 45 degree angle will go.
Cut your angels and head home with the hardest part behind you!
Paint your moldings and once the front is dry you will also want to paint a small section of the back side. You will see a reflection in the mirror of the back so you’ll want to paint it!
Molding: .98 cents a foot
Liquid Nails: $4
Total cost for all my supply’s:$30
And now besides the molding, I have everything I need to do my two others bathrooms!
