Greetings, friends! Today I want to share with you a great DIY project our son did in their new master bathroom. Come see how to add trim to a builder-grade mirror! It’s easier than you might think!
Yesterday I shared with you the beautiful bathroom makeover by our older son, Chase. To see more photos and details click here: How to Update a Bathroom with Paint! The type of mirror you see below is typically what most builders install in new houses. The mirrors are in great shape and the size is nice, so our son decided to keep the mirrors and dress them up with decorative trim.
Chase went to Home Depot where he found these moulding kits for about $22 each. They are typically used around doors and windows, but Chase decided to use them around the mirrors instead. Way to think outside the box, son!
Each kit comes with 7 pieces: three pieces of fluted moulding, two rosettes, and two Plinth corner blocks. Chase decided this kit would work perfectly for their mirrors. The nice thing about this type of kit is it eliminates the need for mitered cuts, so a simple hand saw or circular saw will do. Plus, two lengths of fluted moulding was plenty to complete the four sides of the frame for the mirror.
Chase measured, cut and pre-assembled the frames outside and glued them together. Once dry, he glued them directly over the existing mirrors. Don’t they look great? The pieces in the kits are primed white, which is handy.
For just over $40 our son was able to frame out two mirrors and give them a high-end, custom look. I think they look fabulous!
This bathroom makeover is nearly complete! They eventually plan to replace the faucets and add a chandelier, but for now the bathroom looks updated and beautiful! I can’t wait to share with you more of their wonderful makeovers, but tomorrow I’ll show you a sweet little makeover of my own. HINT: It may be for our favorite tiny grandson!
Have a wonderful day, my friends and please stay safe! xoxo Dell
