Bathroom Glass Tile Mirror

I bought this brown and black wood framed mirror at Wal-Mart.
I had a friend (Thanks John!) attach the mirror to the wall first before adding the tiles. I was concerned about the added weight of the glass tiles since the mirror was already heavy. He assured me it would hold well with “butterfly” screws. This way the screws wouldn’t damage any pipes behind the wall either. I suggest attaching to the wall first because of the mirror’s weight before the tiles are added. It might be almost impossible to attach afterward.




Mirrors are extremely expensive, but I made this one at a fraction of the cost!

Loving it,
Shan

  1. Way to go! I'm SO impressed!!!

  2. You’ve built a quality website around the idea of promoting a healthy lifestyle. You definetly have hilighted the point that it shouldn’t matter what your exercise program includes, whether it be running, hiking, biking or any cardio workout. It’s advantageous to have a pattern that your comfortable with. The end game is to construct a framework for the long haul. The race is not a sprint, but marathon over ones lifetime… I definetely give it four stars.

  3. I just recently was searching for new articles on some proven garden tips. Many of my favorite ideas were located by searching online. Although this article wasn’t quite exactly what I was seeking, It certainly has several fine ideas!

  4. Just the idea i was looking for. gorgeous mirror!
    One question. the first pic above shows just black frames.
    In the pic ‘First row of tiles’ there is no inner black frame.
    How did you put the inner frame to mirror and what did you use to attach tiles to frame?
    Thanks!

    • I bought the mirror already framed at Wal-Mart. It came with a brown and black frame. The brown part was inset. This is why the glass tile fit perfectly on top of the brown area and was level with the black area. I know this is kind of confusing. I’m not sure how else to explain it. I used the Power Grab shown in the first photo to adhere the tiles to the frame. Hope this helps and I would love to see yours when you are finished. 🙂

  5. You change the mirror life :). You did a great job, even it’s not look like a home made.
