Walls painted. New light fixture hung. Time to tackle the massive mirror.
Mirrors this size can run a pretty penny, so there was no way I was going to chunk this one in favor of a new purchase. All it needed was a little sprucing in the form of a frame.
A few pieces of trim would do the trick. After measuring my mirror and cutting the wood to size with a miter saw (No saw? No worries. A hardware store can make the cuts for you.), a quick coat of primer was added to the back since they would be taking up residence in a wet area. No moisture damage wanted here.
Once dry, I made sure all of the pieces fit together nicely…
Then ran a bead of glue along the back joints.
Looking good! Time to hang.
Using a super glue/Gorilla glue combo, I attached the frame to the mirror. Super glue to quickly position the mirror in place while the super sturdy Gorilla glue had time to dry.
Once dry, I filled in the ugly cracks with caulk.
And followed up with a couple coats of white paint.
All finished and much improved for a measly $20.
Have a great weekend, y’all and go Hogs!
