Updating a ’90s gold mirror for a more updated look by painting the bathroom mirror trim.
If you have been following along, you may have seen there is a “remodel” happening at the Mister mom’s house.
The first project was to change a honey bathroom cabinet to a dark wood stain: DIY Bathroom Cabinet Makeover; Goodbye Honey cabinets
It was an AMAZING, and inexpensive, transformation.
The next little project was to lose the gold trim on the mirror.

TRIM PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS
- We taped off the mirror with painters tape and newspaper. This is the most time consuming of the project but needs to be done right to avoid getting paint elsewhere.
- Following the directions on the spray paint, we applied the paint to the frame. Spray in smooth even strokes.
- Let dry and repeat as needed.
- We then took a razor blade to any overspray on the mirror itself.
If you need a change that won’t take a lot of time or money, this is it.
The bath has a new faucet, light fixture, and a few little trinkets to jazz it up. All in all, it’s a bargain makeover.
