How to Frame a Bathroom Mirror With Mosaic Tile
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 !
Standard boring bathroom mirror!
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!
Enjoyed the project?

I have these tiles as trim in my tub area. The spaces between each tile piece is open and had to be grouted. Are these tile pieces open or closed between?
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 it be easier to grout after cutting but before installing?
I love this but have 2 of those little metal holders on top. What can I do with those??
