When we first moved into our new house, I took one look at the raw edge mirror in the downstairs bathroom and had every intention of removing it and replacing it with something better. But, when I got down to the nitty gritty, I realized that whoever had installed the bathroom mirror was glue happy, and didn’t just adhere it to the wall — they cemented it! Removing it would have damaged the wall terribly, causing need for repair and re-texturizing. I decided to go with plan B, (even though I really didn’t have a plan B) and do something different – learn how to tile a mirror.
DIY Bathroom Mirror Re-Do
I really hate changing plans… but, it worked out for the best as you’ll see! I had bathroom mirror tile ideas and I was excited for the project. I love a good, quick home improvement project anyway.
I decided to start my little diy bathroom mirror project with a fresh coat of paint first. I wanted something rich, something chocolate brown. Not only for the design aesthetic, but the fact that it’s basically a boy-proof color. I’m all about that.

I just found this on Pinterest & LOVE this idea!!! It looks great!!
This is my first time here, so I’m not sure that my comment posted. In any event, I love this tile project and I’m going to try it. Maybe not stone tile, maybe glass mosaic.
good idea and so many questioned were asked which they were my questions too but where do I get the answer to all those question?
I just across this blog. Love the mirror idea. I was going to replace a large mirror with ugly looking edges, but your idea is just great 🙂

Excellent idea! Thanks for sharing! I’ll definitely add this to my consideration list for our mirrors!

see above to remove mesh from tile 1st.
So I LOVE this idea…but me being wannabe crafty who needs specific step by step instructions lol….I have a larger oval mirror…how would I do that? I was thinking making the tiles diamond angled instead of square then filling those gaps around with 2 layers of the smallest tiles available…what do you all think? Would that work?

I, too am curious as to how to work the square glass tiles around a large oval mirror. Have you had any luck with your project? I’ll take any suggestions from those with the same dilemma.
