Trim around my guest bathroom mirror!

Alright, I have seen so many bloggers do this project! I finally decided to stop looking at it and do my own. I chose to do the guest bathroom on the main level of our home, because it is the most used of all bathrooms. I see it so many times a day and I thought it really needed some dressing up. I recently painted this bathroom the dark brown (SW Hopsack) and I LOVE it! I bought two pieces of unfinished wood trim strips from HD. I painted them with Killz first then I did a glaze finish with RL Tobacco. To hang the trim pieces I used double sided velcro, it worked like a charm!


Here is the before picture of the bathroom mirror. Please don't mind the smudges!


This was my starting point, the corner.


Second, I added the bottom piece, pretty hard to mess that one up.

Third, I added the sides to form a giant U shape.

The final look! I really am happy with it! It has completely finished my bathroom! Thank you to all the bloggers out there who inspired me to do this!

  1. I found your blog through Shades of Pink. I love how your mirror looks. I really want to do this to mine but I have 2 huge mirrors that come together from 2 different walls and I'm not sure how to do the middle sections where it is just mirrors. Good luck with the blog, I'm new to the blogging world too. I'm having a great time seeing all the very talented people out in the bloggy world.
