Bathroom Mirror Quick Fix ~ DIY
January 3, 2010 By
Are you sick of your boring bathroom mirrors? Do you want a chic look at a shanty price? How about revamping them by yourself in minutes? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are in a place I was several months ago. I found my quick fix with Mirredge!
One of the first projects I wanted to start on in my house was the boring builders stock mirrors. My plan was to take off the mirrors and replace them with framed mirrors ~ even on sale they would be very expensive and I have many other projects to spend money on. So, I opted to save my money and wait. That is until I came across Mirredge!
Whitney came over and we got to work!
I started with the boys bathroom. ANYONE can do this but I would like to show you exactly how I did it!
Mirredge comes packaged in sets of two so I bought 2 sets ~ one set for the horizontal trim and one for the vertical trim.
I then bought 1 set of 4 corner plates. They cover the seams and add a nice aesthetic touch.
The trim is 59.5” long, so roughly 5’. The instructions say to measure each piece on the mirror, score and then crisply snap the trim to get the right fit. I used the circular saw because it was a tad faster. Measure the vertical strips first and then the horizontal. After you cut them down to size there are double-sided adhesive pads that come with the trim – just peel and stick (we put 4 to 5 on each strip). Then add small dabs of a liquid adhesive next to each adhesive pad (i.e. Liquid Nails is a low cost option that works well).
Then you just press the trim onto the mirror!
Once you have all of the trim up it’s time for the corner plates. No cutting here ~just peel and stick the double sided, adhesive, strips and fit to each corner!
Remember the Before…
and here is the AFTER!
I just love how custom my boys mirror looks now and it completely transformed their whole bathroom! Total time invested – 30 minutes! I highly recommend this product to anyone that wants a chic look in minutes!
Okay, so I loved this product so much that I went back to the store that night to get more trim for my master bathroom.
This line also carries seam plates that cover seams when you need more than 5’ of trim. My master mirror needed about 6 ft. on the horizontal pieces so I bought 1 set of 2 seam plates.
I had so much trim left over that I decided to do my half bath also! The only purchase I made for this mirror was the corner plates!
At the end of the day I had customized three bathroom mirrors / which in turn transformed all three bathrooms (in about 1.5 hours) ~ it just doesn’t get any better than that folks!
Mirredge is available in many styles and colors. I purchased the Cherry Walnut. You can go HERE to see a list of styles and colors!
