Mirror, Mirror On My Bathroom Wall...

We all have or have had the dreadfully massive sheet of mirror glass in our bathroom. There is a clever way to change that! Framing the mirror without glue or nails, You can use the good ole' VELCRO!

For around $40 and a couple of hours of your time, your mirror can be transformed and add to your beautifully decorated bathroom without having to hire someone to make an expensive custom frame for you!




It is so easy and simple that you will want to frame every mirror you have and your neighbors too boot! LOL! You could have a lot of friends before this is over! ;) You will want to buy the square rosettes (see photos below for reference), so you don't have to do a lot of angle cutting. You can also cut angles or have someone cut the angles for you, if you don't like the rosette idea. But, by using the rosettes you can make a straight cut. Your local Home Depot or Lowe's will cut the straight cuts for you for free! Just take your measurements with you and ask for someone to help you in the lumber area.







If you are wondering how well Velcro will stick on a bathroom mirror, you will be pleasantly surprised! It will hold up for a very long time, even with the steam...GUARANTEED! :D

Make sure to purchase the Velcro with the sticky backs.

Keep the two sides of Velcro together and stick one side to your trim. Then peel off the paper and press your trim to the mirror.

Working your way around the mirror, until all the sides are done...

And there you have it. Your very own custom framed mirror that little ole' you made yourself!

XoXo,
