A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Bathroom Mirror Makeover

Bathroom Mirror Makeover

I absolutely love when you just happen to do something and it works great. This project cost me under $4. Yep that's right. FOUR BUCKS.

We had these scrap 1x2's that we were not using. And since I hate the awful builder mirrors in our bathroom I needed a fix. I did not want to buy new ones, although that would have been great. And the chance of finding two matching mirrors at Goodwill is pretty much non-existent.

So I fixed it! I took these mirrors (pretend you see two):

And turned them into this:

1x2 cut to size and painted black. And then scuffed up a bit.

Then use epoxy to attach to the mirror. I used Gorilla Epoxy.

Apply very professionally with a grilling skewer. Make sure to get your camera strap in there. 
Then tape it down to hold it secure for a little while. You know, 2.2 seconds. Or 12 hours. Whatev.


Final product:

OOOOOOOOOOO, looks super! I am dreading doing miter cuts on the mirror frame I am working on (hello, I have put it off the last two weekends)!

You are just way too talented!!

And your son is so cute peeking into the mirror in that one shot! That is like my cats, they are always popping up in my photos. It's kind of like where's waldo, really...

Nicely done - we did something similar in our own home and can't wait to do it again!

Kirsty, these are great! I love that you make all your projects look so easy! I found that not to be so on most of mine, but isn't it fun! (I also adore your boy quotes!) Sherry

I have one of those huge wall mirrors in both of our bathrooms, and I'm itching to take them down and put pretty twin mirrors up there. You've inspired me! Gorgeous.

Nice job. Way to dress up a boring mirror. I need to do this in both my bathrooms. I never would have thought of the Gorilla so thanks for the tip.
