Before painting it, we brought it inside to make sure it fit and looked square and everything.This picture below gives you a better sense of how my unpretty notches will fit up against the clips (while still not being visible to anyone once the frame is in place)..” So there you have it, a window into my quirky wife’s soul and a post about framing our bathroom mirror.
Doesn’t the after shot almost feel like it could be a completely new bathroom even though we worked with the original 1960’s tile?
What under-$200 upgrades are you guys doing around the house?
Not only is it hurting the environment, it hurts my pocket book.
So at our first house we framed our builder grade mirror with some cheap MDF molding and ever since, we have been hooked on this cheap, but with a huge impact, solution.
There are companies out there, like Mirror Mate, who can make it super easy for you – but like the true DIY addicts that we are, we opted to try our hand at making this guy from scratch. After considering some more ornate moldings or window trim, we decided a flat chunky piece of wood would be best (and it’d match the chunky shelf nearby without competing too much with other more interesting items like our patterned window shade or the new vanity knobs).
