I know there are so many of us that have these boring, builder-grade mirrors hanging in their bathrooms! These measurements will be long point to long point.
Our little sister, Leasha, moved into her new home this year and she decided she wanted to spruce up her bathroom mirrors a bit! We added an inch to each side so our frame would be 43″x29″. You can use a handsaw and miter box or a miter saw to make these cuts. You will make a 45 degree cut on one side, mark the measurement, swing the arm to the opposite side and make another 45 degree cut!
Installing a new bathroom at the time of publication cost between ,500 and ,000 depending on the number, style and cost of the new fixtures and hardware.
While a new bathroom adds value to a home, updating individual elements is another way of adding the freshness of a new room to your home.
I decided to start small with a DIY frame for my bathroom mirror, and I surprised myself with how professional it ended up looking!
Because I still need to do something to the mirrors in the other bathrooms upstairs I started a clipboard on Hometalk with all the awesome projects I was seeing upgrading bathroom mirrors.
Use baseboard or crown molding materials, which you can buy at a building or hardware store, or purchase the materials from a frame shop.
I love the look of wood molding and how it makes mirrors look much more expensive than the standard unframed glass that came in our house, but I had hesitated to attempt to add it because I thought creating my own molding was beyond my skill level.
3M has a great line of 3M Advanced Abrasives to choose from!
These are great because they are flexible and they last a long time! Now, go back and fill any gouges and scratches that your boards have with 3M Wood Filler .
