Question Replacing original bathroom mirror

Replacing original bathroom mirror and have found it quite difficult to remove! Does anyone have any hints on how to separate the mirror from the wall without breaking it? I'm less concerned with tearing drywall then I am with breaking the mirror. Thanks for any help!!

Replacing original bathroom mirror


More than likely, it was adhesively applied if you cannot see any type of fasteners. Drywall will be ruined when trying to remove this. If you have the room, take some long flat metal, you could try to slide this up from the bottom to seperate mirror from wall. Slowly tap where ever it starts to get hung up, carefully work your way from one edge to the other. Don't start in the middle!

This should be a 2 person job - one should hold mirror.

Removal without breaking may not be feasible. Wear goggles and have a long sleeve shirt and good gloves on.

Good Luck!

Wink If you really don't care...

If you really don't care about the drywall, then take a drill and basically drill out around the mirror and remove the wall with it. That way, you can chip away the drywall from the back. Then you can go to a Lowes or whatever, buy some more drywall and some putty and something to hold it up there with...and just replace the wall. Easy broken mirror included!
