You know those builder grade, outdated bathroom mirrors that practically cover the entire wall? Yup, we've got two of those babies in our house, and believe me when I say I'm not a fan. So I was both excited and a little skeptical a couple of weeks ago when MirrorMate offered me one of their frames to try for myself.
MirrorMate is a Company that promises to outfit your bathroom mirror in minutes with a MirrorMate frame. They custom cut the frames to fit your mirror measurements. The four frame legs assemble and the finished frame tapes right onto the glass. It almost sounds too good to be true doesn't it?
Okay with the Hubby's help...here's our bathroom mirror transformation!
Here's the before. Yawn...b-o-r-i-n-g!
First things first we removed this lovely mirrored trim! Yeah...not so lovely!
Next we scraped off the old black double sided tape and cleaned the mirror edges with rubbing alcohol.
Then we layed the frame out and applied the double sided tape provided, and glued the mitered edges together.
These connectors we placed into the slots provided. So far this is too easy! After this step we waited one hour per the directions to let the glue set.
Okay, we put the frame in front of the mirror and removed the tape backing.
Finally, we pressed the mirror into place and done...it's that easy folks!
Yup, this old mirror is transformed!
Here's a close-up of the mitered edges...looks perfect to me!
And one more look. Yup, I'm lovin' this new look!
If you've got one of these outdated, builder grade mirrors...you must check out MirrorMate! This project was super easy and economical too when you consider the cost of replacing the whole mirror.
