My Claim to Frame

My Claim to Frame
Lindsey is a girl who has a great big boring mirror in her bathroom and would like to do something about it. Someday. Eventually.  (hint: me)  Another girl named Lindsay (but with an A) also had a great big boring mirror in her bathroom, and actually DID something about it.  (not me. dangit.) 
But I love this look!  I’m pretty sure this is a project I could handle, and I’ve almost talked myself into it a few times. But then I remember it involves a bunch of measuring and angles and mathy stuff.  Stuff that makes my brain wither up.  Wither up into little uncooperative raisin. A raisin that is also crying.  Um … sorry I’m not more of a motivational blogger.  Look, pictures!

    awesome! I did something similar to my bathroom mirror at my old place… well, my dad cut it and I supervised. I love the crown moulding look of this one!

    Aw, thank you so much Lindsey with an ‘E’. 🙂 You are too kind, what a fun surprise to see this pop up in my reader. 🙂

    I have a mirror like that too, and i’m like you, math and angles and numbers make my eyes glaze over… literally…

    Yes, yes that is indeed a LOVELY job she did there. I agree, when it involves, measuring and mathy numbers I just throw my hands up and say…let someone else do it. However, I will say this. Her mirror is so fantastically gorgeous now, the cabinets are a sad sad thing. Perhaps those are next on her list to tackle. Just sayin.

    You can do this one for sure! It doesn’t use angles at all! Straight cuts and you’re good to go. I wish that I had done it this way. It is beautiful!

    You know, my whole house has wonderful trim work and crown molding. Everywhere. Places I don’t really want it. But I have a mirror like this before photo – big and plain. In fact I have two like that. I think I need to put the man in charge of making stuff on to a mirror re-do. Your’s looks fantastic.

    Good idea and something I can actually see myself doing!

    Wow, it looks amazing. So different. I have a wood framed bathroom mirror and vanity and have been debating whether to paint it white. Your’s looks awesome! Will you paint the wood on the vanity as well? x J

    Hey, thanks for all your sweet comments, I really appreciate your input! Now about my cabinets, they will be on our list, if we end up staying in this home. There is a big possibility that we may be relocating for my husbands job.

    I have read your blog every day for months now, but this is my first time to comment. I love all that you share and find inspiration in nearly every post. Thanks.

    “A raisin that is also crying.” Hahahaha! Thanks for that hilarious word picture. :^)
    LOVE the mirror, what a fantastic idea!

    Awesome! I have a great big plain mirror like that too! (I guess it’s an Arizona builders thing) Maybe I’ll check into dressing mine up.

    I don’t think the cabinets are bad! (And I am quite picky when it comes to cabinets) they obviously aren’t my favorite.. but they look fine to me! And the cost of replacing them….. love the mirror
