I'm back. Great ideas all over your blog.I'm your newest follower!
See me sometime at May Days.


Oh my goodness this is so wonderful, I just can't tell you how happy I am to see this post! We have the exact same type of "builder grade" bath in our upstairs hall that's mainly usedas a guest bath and it is beyond ugly because of that mirror, so this is such inspiration to me!
Thank you for sharing. Oh and by the way, I have the same tea/coffee pot (entire set) that was a wedding gift to my mother in 1958...such a lovely way to use it here.


Love your bathroom! My favorites are the silver trays. Great idea!


beautiful!!! we did this to our mirror in our other home but still need to frame out our builder mirror here, its been almost 4 years now. I love the black, it is very rich looking.


Wow, what a nice surprise to see all this sparkle I am a silver fan too, my girfriend just gave me a box of it yesterday and I am in heaven! Nice to meet you newbie!

Linda@Coastal Charm

Lovin' all the silver that you are using in your bath!



Nice job on the mirror trim - it looks great. What really has me dying, though, is that rack with the silver trays and your towels. Gorgeous!


I love the silver decorations ,and the way you turned your bathroom to a lush bathroom, I also have skinny mirror too!
I am your newest follower,


Oh...I love how the mirror looks now that you've made it over and yes....you can't give up a skinny mirror! I really love the little silver trays displayed on the wall too. Very pretty makeover.


Chandelier, mirror, silver = fabulous!


Wow, what a great idea with the oval silver trays in the plate holder! I'm stealing that idea, came over from Debbie's. I have been wanting to do my mirror like yours for a while. Great pictures. Lori


Oh following you now.


I love, love love it! I'm keeping this idea for our new place. I don't know what the new place will be yet, but I'm sure it will have some of those builder's mirrors!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home and Lavender Hill Studio

Andrea, it looks wonderful! I also love, love, love the rack with the silver plates.

great redo. Love the light and use of silver. I'm a new follower.


Your bathroom looks fantastic. That's such a great idea for those frameless bathroom mirrors. And I love the silver accents (the tea/coffe pot and the trays). Thanks for sharing.


Looks great! What a nice transformation to your bathroom. Really like the new mirror frame and the hanging silver trays!


Found you on Debbiedoos newbie linky party!


Wow - great job ! The change is very elegant - love the silver trays idea too !!!!

Thanks for sharing,


Looks gorgeous!! Great job! I found you from debbie's newbie party and tabletop tuesdays I am a new follower. Come check me out if you get a chance.

I really like the "bling" the silver trays add to the cute shelf. What an original idea!


I adore the rack with the silver trays! What a beautiful idea! Your mirror looks fantastic. Great makeover!

beatrice banks

Gorgeous! I'm so saving that silver tray idea in my file. Love it! And love your blog.
Finding you via Debbie's Newbie party. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back!
Have a great day!


Beautiful!! I love your chandelier. Visiting from Debbie's newbie party ... love if you'd stop by my blog, too!



Completely changed the bathroom. I love it, and I agree about the hot glue, it is truly a wonderful temporary option. You did a great job!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here

Hi Andrea, Great job on the mirror..it looks wonderful! I love the rack with the silver trays and the pretty towel.


Love it! The trays are wonderful.. I have wanted to redo my mirror for sixteen years.. yours is an inspiration.


Andrea, I absolutely love this mirror. The beginning caught my eye because we moved into our house 24 years ago this month. When we we built everything was the latest. Now it is the datedest. ( I know that is not a word).
I have been wanting to do this sooooo long. I think you pushed me over the edge. $21.00, what can I lose and you really got me with the hot glue. Thanks for the inspiration. I am your newest follower.
Please pop over, I just posted a bathroom my daughter did.
Hugs, Ginger


Great redo! I am really impressed by the difference it made! It would be fun to distress and shabby it up a bit too! Or use barnwood! Now my wheels are turnin'.... ;-) And using silver trays in the plate rack is brilliant~ we should do that in our shop!

the cape on the corner

goodness, i love your bathroom! 25 years is a long time, lol. i can't imagine what my style will change to in that time...i already want to make changes after 3 (much to my boyfriend's dismay!) great, chic, classy bathroom!


OMG! absolutely new life & makes ur BR stunning.


Miss Char

Count me in on loving the display with the silver trays. I'm going to remember that one as I too have a nearly 25 year old house that needs updating. You've done a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing.


GREAT job on the mirror frame and I love those silver trays - what a great spot to use them!!

sue silva

Wow!!!!! This is gorgeous!

Displaying towels on a plate rack is genius!

Sue @ Beach Bungalow


Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I love it all but I think the plate rack with the silver trays is my most favorite part...or maybe the mirror framing...or maybe seeing that teapot again...or... :-) Hope you will consider linking it up to the Inspiration Friday party this week! We are moving to my new site but there will still be lots of fun and great ideas!


It really looks like it was built that way! Great job and love the color you chose for the frame. The whole bathroom looks very put together:) Bravo!


You have given me the idea I needed for my small hall bathroom, I had painted the den hall and bathroom the same buttery yellow and had put red accents on the wall but it just didn't have the kick I wanted, the black mirror with the silver accessories is great. Thanks...Shelia


Absolutely lovely! I love everything you've done, especially your silver hanging on your great find!!! Beautiful!!!

Susan @ My Place to Yours

Andrea, your mirror adds such a nice "finished" look to your bathroom. Nice job! I love your silver trays and linen towels, too! Linens always catch my eye. :-) I hope you'll stop by for a visit. I just posted the BEST tablescape ever!


Yes, I have those same 25 year old builder's mirrors. in five bathrooms...count them FIVE! I need to do this, it looks wonderful. and the chandy and the towel rack with the silver trays, oh my gosh!!! Thanks so much for linking up for the party!

My Grama's Soul

This is just so PRETTY!! Great job.



How Pretty, love the silver with the towels too, great job! Stopping over from My Romantic Home, xoxo tami


Hi Andrea! Your mirror transformation totally made that jewel of a bathroom sing! And I love your platters on the rack with your towels! Such a creative idea! Happy FNF!

xoxo laurie


looks great and i love the silver touches - perfection.


I love this and I so need to do this. Are you sure the hot glue is going to hold it permanently? I mean like with the shower...and the rack with the silver trays is beyond elegant.

Anu@My DreamCanvas

This is lovely! You have a great blog. I am hosting a giveaway on my blog...hope to see you there:-) hugs Anu

Dear Sweet Home

Love it! Especially the silver trays and hand towels. It all looks very pretty!


Beautiful!!! I love everything about it!
Hugs, Cindy


Don't know which I love more the new mirror make-over or the silver platters in the rack! I have the same exact mirror need to do something - but no black accents & don't know what white would look like, might have to bring on a glaze. :)


Hi! I'm just coming back over to say thank you so much for linking up this gorgeousness to the party this week! We framed out our mirrors this year too and it really does make a huge difference. Thanks again!

Brenda Kula

Andrea, it's transformed! Beautiful job, girl! Don't you just love hot glue?

Audrey Pettit

Your bathroom looks great! I love the framing project you did around the mirror! Looks fabulous painted black. And I love the silverplate pieces in there, too.

Fitted kitchens

Wow, Your powder room is so cute! I like how you added the plateaus of silver vintage your towel. Connecting more than Debonairness, and I'm a fan of the new! and Thanks for this blog.

Nolan Anderson

That bathroom looks so elegant. The colors match well with those decorations you placed. Also, the mirror with the frame is indeed wonderful!


Came across your picture on Pinterest and I totally want to try this on our mirror! My question is how did you deal with the clear clips? Are they still on there and the frame not flush with the mirror? Thanks!

Bella Michelle

We are currently doing a "facelift" on a bathroom and today is the mirror project. It is amazing what a frame can do for an ugly builder mirror. I have gotten some great inspiration from your room! LOVE it!

Bathroom radiators

this website is really good enough to supply the most effective to bring the simplest designer toilet radiators and is additionally adding the new nice and original radiator styles in step with its towel radiator vary , and the aim of the positioning is extremely to ensure the individuals that they'll keep the lavatory looking great.


just love the brassy plate rack with the silverplate trays..I had seen your idea sometime ago posted on another site, and couldn't find it again until NOW! I actually found similar racks and have a large collection of silverplate (slight addiction)soon after I first saw your idea. new follower here
and the teapot with the tall branches is purrfect


Ok, I agree, and ditto all the wonderful comments from all the ladies. But I have a question, how did U reattach the mirror to the wall?? Thanks!!
I love black accessories, so love your mirror do over. We are in a big remodel and I have 3 such mirrors! (:
Also have seen or done black doors in a home instead of white? Would love to see some pictures of that!! Or a link to see...! Tks, and keep up the good work!!

Lady Delores LeBoeuf

LOOKS GREAT.......I did the same with my bathroom mirror (thank you Rhoda), TFS, Love & Blessings to you/yours...


I have seen a lot of these mirror makeovers and yours is the most straight forward! I can actually do this! I have two hideous builder grade mirrors in my master bath that I've detested for 16 years! Enough already! I'm going to tackle this fun project this week! Thanks for the inspiration! By the way, I love toile, too and your home is beautiful!


I really liked your idea, the main thing is very simple, and the mirror has changed, and the bathroom too!
