Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…

We gutted the Master Bathroom to the studs and it’s had an amazing transformation including tan linen texture tiles on the floor and shower and a beautiful double vanity with vessel sinks that we scored online for a GREAT price. We decided on a single mirror over the entire vanity with lighting fixtures above each vessel sink but the mirror needed to be exactly 6ft wide including the frame so we opted to buy a 3ftx6ft mirror to attach to the wall.


Here is how we attached everything:
We used mirror brackets to hold it in place while the TONS of mirror adhesive dried (I learned how to do this on DIY Network…where we learned almost everything we’ve been doing!) Then we cut and spray painted 4 boards to frame the mirror and glued those on as well. We started with the bottom board using painters tape to keep it in place and a level to get it straight. After that dried we attached the other 3 boards still using tape and level to ensure perfection. The room  seems twice as large now! Here is our final result:
