Our master bathroom is builder boring.
So I am finally getting around to workin’ on some upgrades.
Mr. Wright brought home a bunch of scrap picture frame molding. I thought I would start with framing the mirror.
One problem: I was eight inches short to cover the entire mirror.
So I came up with an idea that will either go down in the books as sheer brilliance, or total insanity.
Jury is still out.
Here’s what I decided to do: Frame most of the mirror, and cover the rest with leftover tile from the kitchen.
In order to cover the mirror edge with tile, I did have to add a piece of flat wood on each side so that the tile would be level with the mirror on both ends.
I glued the base of the wood frame with liquid nails. After it dries it will help support the rest of the frame, and also give me a guide for my tile.
While the mortar and tile dried I glued the sides of the frame. When they were dry I glued on the top. (The tape is just to help the pieces stay level, not necessarily to support them.)
After the frame glue was completely dry, I finished the tile work. It was super fast as I didn’t even have to rent a tile cuter this time.
I also updated the light fixture. Still can’t believe I figured out how to do that.
Ready to see how it looks?
‘Course you are.
Here’s the before again:
And the after:
I think I should change the hardware to silver.
And I am thinking of painting the cabinets the same almondy color as our kitchen island.
Or a sea foamy green like the tile.
Except not purple, because I hate purple.
We shall see.
Preference? What do you think?
And feel free to send your love my way as I totally rocked the 45 degree cuts on the frame and got the measurements right. It scared the hello out of me, but I did it all by myself. Yeah for mathematics!
So there.Pin It
