Raise your hand if you have a big 'o rectangular mirror hanging in your bathroom? You know, the one the builder slathers glue on the back of and slaps it right onto the wall without thinking of the DIYer who's going to want to remove that bad boy and put up something different.
If removing the mirror and facing the possibility of damaging the drywall is a concern, then I've come up with a great alternative. Glue a mirror on top of it!
This simple solution came to mind when my parents were trying to figure out how to fix a weird blotch on their mirror. I asked them to be my guinea pigs and let me try covering it up with another mirror. The solution sounded intriguing and required minimal work, so I was given the green light.
We found mirrors at Hobby Lobby that were light weight and looked like the backing could be removed easily. Winner!
We unscrewed a few screws and ripped the back right off. No returning the mirrors at this point...I was really hoping my idea worked.
We needed the mirror exposed for best adhesion...mirror on mirror.
Found at any home improvement store. Make sure you pick up a caulk gun while your there, too.
Caulk around the edges and don't be afraid to be extra generous with your portions.
Once the edges are well covered, go crazy in the center of the mirror too.
Let's wrap things up with a little Before/After action, shall we?
