I recently visited the home of a friend who was planning on framing out a large wall-mounted bathroom mirror rather than replacing it, a trick she had seen on Pinterest (of course : ). In her basement were the rough-cut trim moldings that she was priming and painting and then cutting prior to mounting them over the existing mirror. A perfectly great idea which I am certain will give her bath a whole new look. BUT, she could have saved some time and trouble by checking out this company: MirrorMate.com.
They offer custom mirror frame DIY kits in all types of styles and colors, so you can transform the look of your mirror with minimum muss and fuss! I LOVE brilliant ideas that save time and look great! Here are some examples from their website:
This frame sample is Tribeca Black
This frame sample is Venetian Silver Wave.
For a dramatic change, you might like this rustic Lexington Metallic Ash
This is the before, again a very nice but ho hum kind of bath
For more information, and the complete, simple measuring and DIY process, click here to visit their website.
You can order samples to make sure you are choosing exactly the right frame for your space. And, you can check out many more before and afters on their Pinterest page. This is a perfect solution for a simple makeover, or even for staging a home for resale, adding lots of drama for minimal dollars. I hope you all have a transformative Tuesday, everyone! Susan
