When we were building our house, one of the things I wanted to do was have our bathroom mirrors framed. The day I was ordering the mirrors I sat and looked at the different frame styles and colors and I could not make up my mind. Mirrors was one of the final things I had to pick out, and honestly I was so sick of looking at things, and picking things out, that I just didn't care. I ended up ordering just plain ole mirrors and left the place. I am so thankful that I did. To have them framed at the same time we ordered the mirrors it was $400.00-$500.00 per mirror, depending on size. On various blogs and home improvement sites, I've seen people frame their mirrors with molding and decided that I could do that. I started with our small bathroom in the mud room as my practice.
I bought my molding and corner pieces at Home Depot (my home away from home), and sprayed them with Rustoleum paint. I used the molding that is the "fake" wood since it is lighter, cheaper and already primed. I cut my pieces to fit before I painted them so all I would have to do is glue them on the mirror.
Cost for one bathroom:
Molding & corner pieces $14.00
(I used Liquid Nails glue that I had on hand)
Total $18.00 YEA!
I have three mirrors to go still. I have the wood but it is too cold to paint right now. It needs to be at least 50-60 degrees to paint, and we have not been above 20 for weeks. Burrr......
