{mirror questions}


I am sporadic on my postings – I am sorry :)  Its not that i am not busy – it just hasn’t been the fun stuff that you guys all want to see, unless you want to see scrubbing cabinet doors, mopboards and organizing drawers?  I have started on a couple of small projects though – that hopefully i can show you in the next couple of days.

Until then, i have had quite a few questions on one part of my mirror molding that i just posted about.  People are asking about how the side of  the mirror looks.  Whether i overlapped my molding to cover the edge of the mirror – or how i dealt with that.

All i did was line up my molding even with the mirror – then painted the edge of the molding black  to match the mirror.  So now when you look at it from the side it just looks like its all part of the frame.  Make sense?!?!

I normally HATE taping but for this i had to

    I was curious if you are able to still remove the mirror? My bathroom has just a plain jane mirror, but has those clips at the top and bottom that hold it on to the wall. I hope that makes sense. I was wandering how your mirror is hung?

    So glad you posted this! I have my molding cut and sitting outside ready to paint. I wouldn't have even thought to ask about the mirror edge.

    I've always wondered how that worked!! Thanks for sharing — I'm about to do a bathroom mirror myself, and hope it turns out as beautiful as yours!

    My mirrors have the framed mirror look around the edges. I'm worried about trying to remove it and it breaking everywhere. Any thoughts about an easier way? I was thinking I would just put the wood on top of it but I think it will make it too thick.

    Oh my goodness, you're a genius! I have been trying to solve that issue forever, thanks.

    I was curious, in your half bath you said you just used MDF. I want to make that frame in my guest bathroom. However, I am concerned how the MDF will hold up with the moisture? Thanks for the great ideas!

    Absolutely beautiful! Better than others I have seen. Would love to know the dimensions and details of how to recreate this master piece. I have no carpentry experience (working with a drill is a challenge) and really no one to help with it, so sorry but I need detail instructions if you don’t mind. Thank You So Much! Jen

    I don’t see that anyone answered how you deal with the little clips holding the mirror on the wall and putting the frame on the mirror with these clips in place. Suggestions?

      just take off the clips, glue the mirror to the wall and then your ready to frame – no more clips!!

    I love the new layout of your website!!! I came across your website back in September and loved your framed mirror project! Well 6 months later I have three bathrooms on my main floor with framed mirrors finally!!! It was just finding the time to get them done! Thank you for your step by step techniques! It seriously was so easy and adds so much to the bathrooms. It was way cheaper to make them then my custom ones I had someone do a few years back in my basement! Thank you!!!

    Hi..I am new here and have a question. I love the bathroom mirror framed but do you have to take it down and glue to the wall first? And where did you find a frame that wide? I think it looks fabulous!! Thanks!

    • Sausha @ {Sweet Pickins} March 18, 2012 at 4:37 pm #

      my mirror was already glued to the wall, and the frame is one that i made, there is a tutorial on my blog for that!!
