DIY Tutorial--Add Trim Around a Giant Mirror--Great Idea for Renters!

27K Views
We live in military housing, which is like a rental in that all of the changes that make (no matter how wonderful:) have to be returned to original condition when we move out. We had a GIANT mirror in our master bathroom, and I was not a fan. I decided to trim it using molding, which you've probably seen before, but I couldn't make this a permanent change.
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $30 Difficulty: Easy

    I did this project to stained espresso but I didn't paint on the back of the fluted wood far enough over and I can see that reflection any ideas to hiding it? I love yours and mine! :-)

      @Sandy Blackburn Hmm, can you get one of those stain pens in between the trim and the mirror? If not, maybe a very, very small artist's brush? Good luck!

    As you can see by the pic, ours was wedged under the lights so that also prevents it from coming down. We also put trim up in the center to make it look like two mirrors.

    All you brainy people just make me want to throw up!...cause I'm jealous I don't have the creativity as you do. You make something so plain come alive by doing such simple things. I admire you all and the mirror is gorgeous!!
