Mosaic Tile Framed Mirror

54,600 Views
It's almost a universal consensus that we all hate builder-grade plate glass mirrors. It's so easy to spice them up, so I guess that's the silver lining! I looked into using hardware-store mosaic tiles, but they were a bit too pricey for me. My solution? Hot glue and individual glass tiles! I bought them at Hobby Lobby for $15. The tiles have had no problems at all staying put in over a year of use. Plus I did it while 9 months pregnant, so it's a very user-friendly project!

    Wow Brook that looks awesome! I too have one of those mirrors, but I thrifted it and am using it on side, so it's taller than wide, as a floor mirror. I've been wanting to frame it but have not remembered to buy the wood to frame it. I'm most certainly happy I haven't because now I'll be buying tiles to frame it like you did yours! Thanks so much for posting this awesome and super easy idea. I need a trip to Hobby Lobby!

    Thank you Becky! I'm glad it inspired you. They sell these in the mosaic section/aisle. There are sea glass ones and some that look like tumbled marble

    You're very welcome Brook. I'm pretty sure I've seen them before. I have to drive into the city tomorrow so I'll be sure and stop and get some. It not only saves me the trouble of adding a larger back to the mirror so I can attach a wooden frame, it's going to look prettier!

    I don't hate my builder grade large mirrors. They make the room look extra large and I like spacious bathrooms. I don't understand why people replace them with small ones. I framed mine too. This is a great idea and turned out nice.
