See all my scratches around the edges of the mirror? Ugghh, I felt so stupid and angry at myself. I knew this mirror would have to go to Over The Mountain Glass to be repaired because those bitty scratches would drive me crazy. This bargain of mine was going to cost me after all, and all because of my lack of foresight. Oh, I thought I was safe by covering my other mirror with tape. Remember mistake number 3? When I was sanding with the rotary sander I actually bumped the mirror BEYOND the tape. Both mirrors had to be replaced. This was a $130.oo mistake. By the way, the original mirrors were in almost perfect condition when I got them. JEEEZZE-O-Man was I sick!
I was bored with my “contractor grade” mirror above the double vanity in my master bathroom. I found two mirrors at the thrift store (five dollars each..yoohoo!) that I wanted to switch for the one larger mirror. This tutorial will show you step by step what I did to remove the mirror and repair the wall.
We were able to gently scrape some of the old adhesive patches off with a putty knife.
Note: Once I primed my patches, I noticed a couple of them that I needed to patch again. Sometimes you won’t notice some of the divots until they have a coat of primer on them. You just have to patch them again. ARRGH! !
I think I can make it so I'm constanly proving to myself that I can!
