Revamp that large bathroom mirror

I added shelves and some trim to dress up the large bathroom mirror.

*Options I considered for this project:

We considered replacing the mirror altogether, but decided to go the less expensive route first and see how long it would buy us.

*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:

I didn't know how well the mirror was attached to the wall. I also didn't know how well my adhesive would adhere to the mirror and trim.

* Cost Comments:

1"x4" MDF (32 ft) - $20

1/2 birch plywd - $15

Trim (40 ft) - $20

    We saw the revamp on the mirror and said that is for our mirror so my husband went to HD and bought a door kit to start the project. We think it will come to $44 + left over paint. Thanks so much for the inspiration I'll add a picture when complete.

    For questions about the middle shelving unit. I built it from scratch to fit the area perfectly.
