  1. 1

    Purchase a window frosting kit at a hobby shop to liven up the plain bathroom mirror. Stencil designs over the mirror to create your own personal motif for the bathroom.

  2. 2

    Take the measurements of the mirror. Buy a piece of decorative wood moulding and secure it to the wall around the side of the mirror using nails. Paint the moulding and you have a framed mirror for the bathroom.

  3. 3

    Glue flat glass marbles or beads to the bathroom mirror in a random pattern to create a whimsical design. Apply coloured glass like sea glass to create a mosaic design around the mirror.

  4. 4

    Spray paint seas shells in white and hot glue gun them to the edge of the bathroom mirror to give the space a nautical effect. Use various sea shell sizes to create a cohesive design.

  5. 5

    Paint the frame of the plain bathroom mirror with semigloss paint. Apply a deep navy or raspberry shade for a rich dramatic design. Keep the room looking bright and open with crisp white or creamy beige hues.
