Large Bathroom Mirror redo to double framed mirrors and cabinet


Everyone hates the 6+ foot mirror that all main bathrooms seem to come with. Soooo we took an idea from a fellow pinterester and made it our own (so to speak). This is NOT a one day project but the results are worth the time :)
You will need
1"x4" MDF (32 ft)
1/2 birch plywd
Trim (40 ft)
Baseboard (3 ft)
All building supplies for the mirror/cabinet project approx. 40.00
Lights - 38.00 each on sale
New faux wood blind - 39.00
Paint - 5.00 (bought a mis tint from Rona)
1 can of brushed Nickel spray paint 10.00
we also did floating shelves in the water closet (another idea I got from a fellow Pinterester)
We only needed 2 shelves for this bathroom
but made 6 shelves
24X 8 inches with supports
1 sheet of 1/4 plywood, sanded on one side
10 1×2 pine boards
floating shelves supplies 20.00
when all was said and done the total reno for this bathroom was 190.00
Have fun with it and make it your own

    Hi,

    Great job! How did you remove the mirror in the first pic.? I have round mirrors that I want to put up but I have a use for my huge existing mirror.

    thanks, Kat

      Our huge mirror was supported by special "clips" meant to hold a mirror. Check yours, if there are clips, it's as easy as taking a screw driver to unscrew the clips and lift mirror down, careful! Mirror is HEAVY!

    Can you give some instruction and measurement on building the cabinet in front of the mirror?
