How do I create a renter friendly frame for bathroom mirror?

by Kee

I’ve seen others use those peel and stick vinyl backsplash as a frame. I have some left over peel and stick vinyl tile for my bathroom flooring. I was wondering if i could cut that up into a frame and apply it the same way people do with their backsplash.

    Absolutely. I've done this and posted about it. Find my posts by clicking on my picture and look for the one that is the bathroom makeover. Just remember to measure about 5 times before you stick the tiles on because mistakes are not forgiven by that double sticky tape!

    I am a renter with a very unappealing bathroom. I have a flat mirror attached to the wall which just was not acceptable. I simply purchased an empty frame in a style I liked and with a little silicone attached it right on top of the mirror. Even though the frame is smaller than the mirror it added so much to the room and reflected the style I was going for. My mirror is square and my frame is oval. Not only did it highlight the viewers image it also made my tiny bathroom seem bigger because of the open mirror around the frame.

    MAKE your own. Get some cardboard & cut some strips out. Make sure there's 2 copies (you will glue them together before decorating for added strength). Measure the Length & Width of the mirror & the width you want your frame to be. There's several ways to decorate them. Use contact paper, decoupage, decorative duct tape, stencils &/or paint. Once they're done, put your pieces together on the floor & cut your corners. Duct tape the back corners holding them together. Decorate. Hang them using Command Strips (the refills for those hooks). They will adhere to the wall & can be removed without damaging the wall if you ever move. Also, you could take the frame with you if you move.
