I live in an apartment so I am not allowed to do any permanent changes but I couldn't not stand the look of the bathroom mirrors any longer!



Eventually I'd like to frame the larger mirror using wood trim, and I know how I can do it without it being permanent I just have to have money for supplies, maybe soon!

I really hate that medicine cabinet. If it were up to me we wouldn't even have one. It's just silly mirrors side by side like that and so plain and boring! So I made a faux frame for it! I used a thick paper (cardstock like) and contact paper. Here is the final result:



Now it looks like I hung a mirror there (kinda sorta) and adds a little whimsy Smiley

More in depth post on my blog including a walk thru of my process Smiley Was just too many photos to upload onto my photobucket then copy to here and quite a long story.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Nice, I like the wood grain.  I'd just add a little contact paper bird silhouette on the wall behind it - so it looks like a bird is perched on top.  That'll complete the whimsy.  Smiley

That's really great! It actually looks like you fashioned it out of wood.
