Framing a Mirror

Thank you for Sharing!


Before we moved to our house, we lived in a condo.  It had a standard mirror.  I think this was one of the first projects I copied from someone else.  I had seen it done here, and was very happy with how mine turned out due to her instructions.

I spray painted the light fixture from gold to silver.

If I remember right, I think my husband helped to cut out notches on the back of the molding to go over the mirror clips holding it onto the wall.

Here it is as I tested my cut pieces.  I hand-sawed them with a miter box–the best I had at the time.  At the bottom I had to go fairly high on the mirror in order not to have the molding go over the bathroom tile.

And here it is finished!  I had to caulk between the corner seams and then paint over it– not the best option, but I was happy with the result!

It all looked a lot better after I added a picture at the top!
