When I gutted the bathroom in my house I just couldn’t just hang the mirror on the wall again. Plus I didn’t want to drive the 6 mile round trip to spend $5 on a tube of Mirror adhesive only to use less than a dollars worth on a 24”x30” mirror.
I spent a few hours and cleared out a bunch of scrap pine and leftover pieces of crown molding to cobble together a mirror frame for the mirror I pulled down during demo.
Close Up of Mirror
It doesn’t show in the photo, but I painted with the same semi gloss paint I used on the rest of the trim. While I was sanding between coats, my wife decided that she liked the distressed look better.
Mirror and Sink
I didn’t take many good before pictures but this was a full gut of a 5’x8’ hall bathroom that was 1990’s builder beige with a leaking toilet, cracked fiberglass shower stall, and a cultured marble sink on a crumbling vanity.
The photo isn’t great, but not even a good photo would have made that bathroom look appealing.
