We have a basic big old contractors mirror in our master bath. I decided I wanted to change it but with a budget and not wanting to patch and mess with the wall and vanity if I removed it I decided to frame it out. Here is the before. Boring!
I started by cutting edges at an angle using my chop saw (Is that what it's called?) I pre drilled little holes for the screws in the corners of all of the pieces.
Followed by a larger drill so that I would be able to sink the screws in and cover them with wood filler once it was up. I applies a strong adhesive to the back of the piece of wood and held it in place, leveled it out to make sure it was straight and drilled the screws into the premade holes. Added a little tape to make sure it wouldn't slide at all while it dried and that was it. Did all 4 sides with 45 degree cuts and the perfect frame.
