Framing a mirror

I recently had my bathroom completly remodeled however, no one touched the vanity. I live in a small apartment and was trying to think of great, low-cost, projects I could do to make my 70s style vanity look a little more modern.
I've already painted my bathroom counter and installed new hardware and now I'm looking at my mirror. I was thinking of framing the mirror, but the top and bottom of the mirror is right against the lighting and horizontal medicine cabinet. Does anyone think I should go for framing it or do you think that framing it will just make it look cluttered?
I'm also open to suggestions.
Thank you for your help

I've used moldings (both wood and the polyurethane pre-finished stuff) to frame several mirrors. One was setting right on top of the backsplash so I used an adhesive caulk (or maybe Goop?) and some tape and put it directly on the mirror itself instead of the wall. Turned out very nice.
