Guest Post – Southern Lovely

Hello, I am so excited to be stopping by today. This is a really great honor to be here! I’m Lindsay, and I blog over at Southern Lovely. At my blog you will find a little bit of crafting, sewing, painting, really anything that lets me be creative!

Today I am going to share a project that I recently *convinced* my husband to help me with. 🙂

It worked out pretty awesome though, because the finished product is better than I expected. Inspiration & tutorial for this project is found here at Full of Great Ideas.

Here’s the low down on how we made our framed mirror–

Supplies needed:

mdf board–measure your own mirror to determine how much you need
Trim–chose whatever you’d like to add to the mdf board
Liquid nails
Double-sided tape
Miter saw–or other saw to cut your board & trim

This is what our mirror looked like before we started

My handy husband got to work cutting all the pieces, gluing the trim on, & priming & painting them. Once that was finished, it was time to install.

We found that liquid nails AND double-sided tape worked best to make it very secure.

My husband caulked it afterward to make it look even more precise. We switched out the light fixtures as well–which was MUCH needed. 🙂

And while we were at it, the other bathroom needed a mirror upgrade as well. 🙂 It still needs the light fixture replaced, but we will get to that soon.

There you go, pretty easy right?! And what a difference it makes. I’m kicking myself that we didn’t do this sooner.

Thanks for having me, Leanne! If any of your readers want to check out more of my blog, here are a couple of what they might find–Jewelry makingSpray paint projectssewingDiy’s

I’ve been wanting to do this to my bathroom mirrors. It’s on my long projects list. Thanks for sharing here Lindsay. Make sure to stop by and visit her blog. She has some great ideas to share there.

    That is an awesome idea. I did some research a few years ago on how to do this and all I found was a company that sold some type of strips that you placed over your mirror. It was a little pricey. So thank you for the information.
