the story begins almost 2 years ago when avery and i bought our house. i loved almost everything about this house….except for the bathroom.  i just wanted to tweak some things, and one of the things was the mirror . it is not just an ordinary mirror, it’s attached to the medicine cabinet…..which means i was pretty much stuck with this boringly ugly mirror. the thing i didn’t like about it was the fake looking chrome frame.

keri, my friend, gave  me this idea of making my own wood frame to glue on top of the mirror.

and that is what avery and i did.

you HAVE to be a perfectionist to do this project…i attempted it alone and messed up so bad.

i humbly asked avery to be my assistant, and he accepted. i mean he did owe me a favor after i made him that cord cozy.

so the 1st step belonged to avery. he cut the 2 sticks(which are actually used for crown molding) into 4 pieces that were cut at perfect diagonals to make a frame.

step two was mine. i glued the pieces together and then painted  the front and back.

step three was his. he put glue along the old and ugly bathroom mirror and then placed the new one on using clamps to let it dry overnight.

step four was mine. i took pictures and wrote a blog post about it.

the story has a happy ending.

our mirror was a success, and it only cost $10.

it would have been cheaper if i didn’t attempt to do this alone at the beginning.
