Hate these mirrors...over both of our sinks in our bathrooms, and also on the two corner walls of our corner bathtub. You know the ones from manufactured homes.

    Hi Linda - the best thing to do is to add a frame! Here are several ways that I have done that >> https://www.charlestoncrafted.com/2018/03/20/four-best-ways-frame-mirror/

    Frame them with molding pieces. Google how, very easy.

      Framing them out wouldn't be enough for me....our sinks are single sinks in each bathroom so pictures is out. And...they are still HUGE...UGH!! Do you know if anyone has attempted to remove them...I suppose the glue is all over the walls. On the bathtub, I thought of maybe removing them, and putting up shiplap, all the way to the ceiling there. Then some nice candle sconces, maybe a pic or two. Could also do the shiplap up to ceiling on sink ones, and put a recessed med cabinet with mini barn door mirror (much smaller, of course!) I guess it just comes down to removing the darn things!

    Hi Linda,

    Are they just the glass, or framed?

      All glass...but....I think I have answered my own question. Framing them out wouldn't be enough for me....our sinks are single sinks in each bathroom so pictures is out.and...they are HUGE...UGH!!

    I would trim it out with mosaic tile by using Liquid Nails to adhere it to the Mirror or you can use some type of trimming baseboard or casing to trim out mirror

    Linda, I do also hate them...the keep up is dreadful....Framing like already suggested is great, both our bathroom have been framed, also I placed a good size but not too heavy picture in between double sinks, try to call attention away from mirrors with plants or ???.....curtains also have been suggested...removing and replacing those on bathtub?...
