Let’s go to it! DIY mirror frame, step 1: Remove the light and adjust the position of the mirror. Cassette decided she wanted the mirror to hang over the vanity, not rest on the back panel. It was a good choice, but it required us to remove the mirror and re-hang it. We used the same device it was attached to before and made sure the mirror was well secured. If the mirror does not need to be adjusted, skip this part, but make sure the hardware is well installed and the mirror is secure. You can also see that we’ve started the process of raising the vanity height. Never just one project at a time for this # remodelaholic! DIY Mirror Frame Step 2: The Bottom and Sides We wanted to hang the mirror frame over the mirror by about two inches, so we measured and cut the bottom accordingly. For the side pieces we wanted it to flush with the bottom piece and also flush with the top piece of the frame. This means cutting the side parts a little shorter than the distance from the bottom piece to the top edge of the mirror (see mounting photos below for a visual picture). If your mirror has hardware that wraps in the front of the mirror, then you will encounter the same problem we did: You cannot glue the panel to the mirror. We chose to take out the frame as the device was supposed to allow the frame to sit facing the mirror. To do this, put the panels in place, but next to the mirror, and then mark where the notches should be. Using my multiple tools, I managed to cut the notch perfectly! We planned it so the frame lay flat against the notch to help hold it in place while the glue dries. Next, install the scrap wood or fillings to the same depth as the mirror. (The fillings in the image below are incomplete and one of them is already covered, but you get the idea.) Then, using the mirror construction adhesive, glue the bottom (which was already done in the photo above) and the two sides of the mirror framing. We also anchored the frame pieces to the wall with only the hanging portion (not through the mirror!) To secure it. This is the bottom in place and the sides go up. (Note that the side pieces are shorter than the top of the mirror, as mentioned earlier.) DIY mirror frame, Step 3: The top we put the top frame in place and then roll it onto the wall near the top and where the new bulbs go. We chose to lock it in place, not stick it in place to allow us access to the original electrical box if needed in the future. After that it is time to add crown decoration. Pour the crown like icing on the cake, don’t you think? Makes everything look perfect. DIY Mirror Frame Step 4: Capping and Painting After adding dam and two layers of paint, here is the DIY mirror frame that makes the entire bathroom look even better! You can see here, with the lights hanging down under the frame, we’re getting twice the amount of light due to the reflection in the mirror. This is much better than the lighting fixtures that have been there before! And now the finished picture with the mirror frame, the new lighting fixture installation, the raised vanity and the painted cabinets: We love it! How did you end up? Let us know!
