I have two mirrors above my bathroom vanities that I would like to frame. Get started by measuring the length and width of the mirror you'd like to frame. Head to your local home improvement store and purchase pre-painted molding. It may cost a little more but it saves time and paint.

Step One: Measure and mark your molding. Using a miter box, secure and cut your molding. Sand away the rough edges.

Step Two: Apply Liquid Nails to the back side.

Apply Liquid Nails to not only the middle of the molding but also along the top and bottom of the back.

Step Three: Stick the pieces of molding directly to the mirror. Remove any Liquid Nails that has oozed onto the mirror or wall.

Use painter's tape to hold the molding in place while it dries especially on the corners. Allow to dry at least 24 hours.

Step Four: Caulk the corner joints. Use a wet paper towel to remove excess caulk.
