How to remove mirror from frame
First get out the big garbage can, a hammer and a crowbar. Just don’t tell your hubby as he may refuse this project. It’s totally worth it though, unless it’ll cause world war three. So let’s get started.
Drape a drop cloth over your sink so it will catch all of the glass. You will want to wear proper protection like gloves and eye protection. Once you get everything ready to go, you will bust your mirror with the hammer. You can then use the crowbar to remove smaller pieces of mirror instead of trying to remove one big piece and having it bust in your hands. The biggest problem to watch out for is getting cut by glass. You can apply masking tape across your mirror in many strips so that when you crack the mirror, it will stay somewhat in place for easy removal.

Can I paint a mirror frame?
A framed mirror adds so much to a bathroom space. You can paint the frame in a beautiful color or you can shop our large selection of hand painted bathroom mirrors. Our most popular mirror frame is this shabby chic frame. For example it comes in vintage gold, black or in our most popular of white with grey. We also do specialty colors because we know how fun it is to have something special and unique in our homes. Below is another review photo, I sure do love this!
How big should a bathroom mirror be?
One common question we get is how big should a framed bathroom mirror be to fit the vanity. Many people hang wall lights that would sit on each side of the mirror rather than above the mirror. I would give a couple inches from the edge of the frame to the light. That often puts one’s mirror a bit smaller than planned. As you can see our mirrors are very popular in bathrooms. We have another review photo below, where they placed our mirror in their bathroom. So you guys have to check out our son and daughter in laws new updated small bathroom! It is amazing what you can do to make a space feel so much bigger.
If you have lights above the mirror, you can have your beautifully framed bathroom mirror come almost to the edge of the vanity. Sometimes hanging the mirror vertical will work better than hanging horizontally. I recommend cutting cardboard in the size of our mirrors and then hold the cardboard to the vanity wall for an idea on how to best pick your size.
