Old medicine cabinet gets a facelift for $30

After searching for a new medicine cabinet and not finding any of quality or reasonable price, I decided to just give mine a facelift. I measured the mirror door and went to a craft store and bought an open back picture frame for $25. I removed the door and once properly aligned, I secured the mirror to the frame with metal mirror holders and frame screws. I had to buy the screws separately because the screws that came with the metal holders were too long. I then ran strong adhesive glue all around the edge of the mirror and let dry for around 6 hours. Once dry I reattached the door and voila, it looks like a brand new medicine cabinet. Next up, getting rid of that awful light above it.......baby steps. ;)
