How to Frame a Bathroom Mirror With Mosaic Tile

$40.00
3 Minutes
Easy

Our bathroom mirror was just plain and lacked that wow factor! I had thought about doing wood trim but, that didn't tickle my fancy either. I had tiled our fireplace surround a few months ago and it turn out really great, so I went to Home Depot and picked up some tile that was on sale for a $1.86 !

I then cut the mesh between the tiles, this gave me about 1& 1/2 inch strips.

This stuff makes applying tile so much easier, you don't have to mix up messy mortar, just cut the same size as your tile, press on the mirror, peel off paper, press tile firmly.

Once you cut and press your tile all the way around the mirror, you cant then apply your grout! This project took about 3 hours, applying the grout and cleaning the mirror took the longest!

    I love what you did to your mirror. Did you adhere the tile to the mirror, the wall or both? Thank you

    Love your mirror! Did your mirror have those nasty little clips that hold it to the wall? Not sure how to tile around those...

    Hi Sherre, I've wanted to do a DIY on the builder's mirror but wasn't sure on how to start. Thanks for the inspiration. I just have two questions. Was this the peel and stick tiles and where did you apply gout?

    Would like to but don’t understand the grout.....that sounds really messy.

    You were lucky you didn’t have two clips at the top of your mirror.
