A MirrorMate Makeover!

We love easy upgrades that have a big impact!
This past summer we had the pleasure of meeting the owner of MirrorMate, Lisa Huntting and her PR    genius Amy Florek for lunch in Boston.  We had a great time exchanging stories about business and inspiration.  Lisa created her product back in 2003 when she was renovating her bathroom.  Necessity is the mother of invention, and she needed a solution for the big unadorned mirrors stuck to her bathroom walls.  Her simple frame system took off, and now she has over 65 styles available. All you need to do is measure to get a quote or order!
Cheryle had a mirror in her bathroom that was just crying out for MirrorMate makeover, so she had to try this revolutionary  product out…

She choose the Broadway style in Brushed Chrome and totally changed the look of her vanity mirror:

The installation was so easy!
Cheryle gave her mirror measurements, and soon after everything she’d need to complete this arrived in the mail:

The instructions said you’d need a buddy to help install, so I came over to give her a hand and photograph the process.  We laid the parts out, and as the instructions said, Cheryle colored the raw inside edges with a grey marker to avoid “join” lines.

She then applied glue to both edges…
Beveled corners have channels to add strength
and pressed the plastic connectors into their respective channels…

 Once all four corners were joined, we stood the frame up and
cleaned any glue residue off with a damp rag and let dry for one hour.

Once dry, we brought it into the bathroom to make sure it fit and was level.
Ready for mounting
It fit like a glove!
So Cheryle positioned the cardboard “placement corners” in the top corners as guides.
Squaring up corners
We took the frame down and pulled the backing off the adhesive strips.
It was now ready to be attached to the mirror.
Like Velcro
 We just set it back onto the cardboard guides and pressed it into place.
We took the guides off, and gave it an extra press all around to make sure it was secure.

Ta-Da!  Seriously one of the easiest makeovers ever!
No cutting or painted necessary.

Stay tuned though… if you notice, we are playing around with a little addition to the frame.
Lolita O’verlays coming soon.
(You knew we couldn’t leave well enough alone.)
