Have you got a flat, lifeless, plate-glass type of mirror like this in your bathroom? Have you ever wondered what it would look like with a nicer framed mirror over your sink instead? I know I have! I have a few of those suckers in my own house. Check out these bathroom mirror makeovers, starting with this one:

Does anyone have one of these mile-long mirrors in their master bath? I do! Mine is “seamless,” though, and I have no idea how to remove it–and get it downstairs and out the door and to the curb without killing myself (what a way to go–flattened by a mirror!).

These makeovers were created with a new product called Mirror Mates, which allows you to choose the frame you want for your mirror and easily install it. From what I can tell by watching the How-To video on their website, it looks as easy as sticking them on with adhesive that comes with the frames.
The company was started by Lisa Huntting, who was tired of removing the old mirrors and wanted an easier way to give her bathrooms an updated look. Visit their website for more info!
I finally framed that giant mirror in my bathroom–but we did it the hard way, creating our own frames with wood trim. Want to see how it turned out?
