This bathroom had such great bones, but the design details just didn’t fit my style. I knew that I definitely wanted to change out the pumpkin orange paint color and the builder grade mirror, but I didn’t want to spend a lot on the refresh. The first place that I went was the scrap wood pile in the barn.

After every home remodel project, this is where we put all of the leftovers. I found the crown trim and some 3″ wide boards and a lintel piece. The only thing that I needed to purchase was the 8″ wide board for above the mirror and some adhesive.

How Do You Frame a Bathroom Mirror Without Removing It?

The first thing that I did was to cut my 3″ wide boards to length. I measured and cut the bottom board first and attached it with construction adhesive and blue tape.

Then, I measured from the top of the attached bottom board to the top of the mirror. I cut two pieces, one for each side of the mirror. I attached them to the mirror.

I went back out to the garage, to build the top of the mirror frame. I used n 8″ wide board to add height to the mirror, a lintel piece to add along the bottom and a crown to add to the top.

TIP: When adding two or more pieces of trim to a board-attach all of the pieces before you cut it to length. This ensures that your entire finished project comes out perfect.

After, I attached my trim pieces, and cut it to length, I brought it into the bathroom and attached it to the wall above the mirror. Because I was attaching it to the wall, I nailed the board to the wall using my nail gun. I wanted to go as far up to the ceiling as possible to add height.

Then I filled the nail holes with spackle and caulked all of the seams. I let it dry. Then I painted the entire frame white. I absolutely love how it looks. It only took me a couple of hours, start to finish, to do this project.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
