Wink Removal of Bathroom Mirror

Our Bathroom Mirror is attached to the wall. Does anyone know how to remove it? We want to put in a tri-view-mirrored medicine cabinet. Thanks for any help.

Is it just a mirror?? If yes, and it was glued, it is likely you will have to break it. But often it is just held with 4 corner brackets, or top/bottom brackets. If no brackets, work a large putty knife behind it and gently start prying. Wear gloves and protect your arms in case it breaks. If it is a cabinet, surface mount will have screws thru the back, recessed will have screws into the sides.

seems like i saw/heard/read that you can take some sort of wire and work it back & forth from top to bottom behind mirrors that have been glued directly to the wall.....then you don't have to intentionally break the mirror.
