Cost less than 100 made huge difference in a coustomers house that was on market. Realitor suggested 800 dollar mirror. Did it for way less and in no time at all. Took longer for paint to dry then to build

Jinscho, looks great. How did you attach it to the mirror?

Thanks. I had about an inch gap between the mirror and the wall and about the same on the other end. So I cut some 3/8 strips and screwed them to the wall. Which I used for nailing into, I glued all four pieces directly to mirror. made sure to paint both sides of wood since I was on top of mirror.

Looks great! Your vanity is very similar to mine and this is something I’ve been wanting to do as well. Great to hear it only cost you around $100. I was wondering if you could let me know the dimensions of the mirror, where you purchased it and for approx. how much? I assume your surrounding border cost at least 20 bucks; nice look.

I only had to purchase the wood and paint. The mirror was already there. I own a construction company and did that for a customer of mine. I camt remember the exact dimensions but I think it was about 7 1/2 ft x 3 1/2 ft.

Thank you for the feedback James; I hope when I redo mine it comes out as nice as this one.

Great work on the mirror! The frame and the paint job really made a big difference to the entire look of the kitchen.
