How can I cover the discolored edges around my large bathroom mirror?

by Carol
My bathroom mirror, which covers most of the wall over my sink and dressing area, has become discolored around the edges. I need some suggestions for covering the top, bottom, and side edges to cover the unsightly perimeter. I would prefer not to have to replace the mirror. Thank you!

    An added molding around the edges would cover up the discoloration and dress up your mirror. I'm going to do that with mine as well.

    You can do a faux frame. tack thin strip but wide as frame boards) next to edge of mirror above the top (side and bottom, too, if space between mirror and wall) where the edge shows , then use clear silicone to glue framing all around the mirror. Check to see if reflection behind frame will show in mirror. If so, paint both front and back and use caulk sparingly. Frame boards should be mitered at corners. Goo d Luck!

    Frame it; you can make simply or purchase custom made that will fit right over the wall clips if there are any. If it's just glued onto the wall, even easier to build the frame yourself. This way you can use whatever color, pattern, etc., you want.

    We were given a old mirror and the edges had seen better days. Hubby took wood pieces and made a frame. The frame covered the icky looking edges.
