How do I change the mirror on a bathroom medicine cabinet?

I purchased a pretty mirror at a thrift store. I bought it with intentions of swapping the bathroom cabinet mirror. The cabinet mirror is square and wider than the oval and less smaller mirror that I purchased. How can I make it fit without taking out the whole cabinet that is in wall?😏

    Without pictures, I can’t understand how the hinges are going to work.

    What is “less smaller”?

    An oval is going to be hard to hinge on a square box.

    Does the new mirror have a frame to screw the hinges into?

    Take the cabinet door off and make a new door adding the new mirror then put it on the medicine cabinet;if the new mirror covers old mirror & lies flat/flush use construction adhesive to put it over the old one??? really need a picture so we can see exactly how they might best fit together or if they even will.

    Is it possible for you to cut out a thin piece of good one side plywood to frame the mirror? You will need a jig saw for this. Or just cut a piece with an outside design and then glue the mirror to it and then install over your present mirror or location. The outside frame will require finishing so you can either stain or paint it. The other thing you can do is to do a small tile around the oval mirror and put it in place over the present location.
