    I've seen people glue a frame right to the mirror, just choose one that is larger than the bevel area

    I agree with Shawna. That was the first thing I thought of was, frame it. It will be amazing. Choose a color that will be fun for your bathroom, don't be afraid of color, remember if you don't like the color it can be changed. Good luck.

    I agree with trim the size of the bevel or bigger. In a rental, I once used 2 sided tape.

    Be sure to choose a molding that allows for the depth of the mirror edge. It's like a canvas fits in a frame. Your frame moulding widths depends on your mirror size. Don't use one that is too small, it will look dinky and cheap. Use a miter box to cut the corners at a 45 degree angle. You should leave the bevel showing. Beveled mirrors are more expensive and usually thicker than flat mirrors.

    Is the mirror already attached to the wall? If so the bevel can show.you are attaching the mounding to the wall as well, not the mirror. Why pay for a bevel and cover it up!
