How to Makeover a Bathroom for Under $75 With Reclaimed Trim

Have plain, boring, builder mirrors?  Me too, and I know there are products to change that, but I decided to do my own cheaper version.

Some trim from the Restore painted white (I let some of the wood show through on the trim),

and Command adhesive picture hanging strips were all it took.  I stuck the trim/command strips directly to the mirror.  They are holding well!!

I could have mitered the corners, but because I chose to use four different types of trim boards and because I wanted a more shabby look, I did not.  The silver mirror was in the bathroom before--daughter wanted it back in there.  It is not really useable hanging in this spot, but reflects the natural light well.

Cost for mirror upgrade:
Trim                               $8
Command Adhesive   $6

Total:                             $14

Which brings the grand total so far to $59, and that leaves me $16 left to spend.  I have one more project to show you to complete the under $75 bathroom makeover.  It will have to wait until the end of the week, I have something fun for you all coming up tomorrow evening so make sure to check back in!

  1. The bathroom is looking great Becky! I love the ReStore. I like the way you arranged the trim for the mirror, and who doesn't LOVE command brand stuff?
