broke 76 inch mirror

above my bathroom counter are 2 small cabinets on either side. then theres a 76 in mirror the entire length of the cabinet. as i removed the small med cabinet, a piece of the mirror broke . all i can think to do is buy some kind of corner block frame type things to put at the 4 corners of the mirror to make it look pretty

any other ideas

You could put some trim around the mirror to frame it like a picture frame.

Ten years ago I built a new cabinet face of reclaimed redwood for a 1980s oak and formica cabinet in our master bath. SWMBO declared that the frameless mirror was no longer appropriate or acceptable but I knew removing it would be a big problem. I glued (construction adhesive) a wood frame to the glass instead like Tolyn suggested. Also added a wood frame around the frameless recessed medicine cabinet on the side.



The noisy kickspace heater was removed and replaced by underfloor radiant.

what i didnt say before is this mirror is directlly against another wall at 90 degrees and that mirror is counter depth but not as low from the ceiling . i fear doing one but not the other would look silly but i feel not doing the other would be silly lol. maybe ill just put a USA flag sticker on it, think new owners would notice?


also is there any way to put any wood on the mirror but make it easily removable as well

here's a pic of the left side of the setup so you get perspective

I guess it would depend on how strong of an adhesive you use. If you just used some two-sided tape or do the double blue tape with glue between it could be removable.

Since the mirror is tight to another wall you could just mount the trim on the glass only using adhesive or the above-mentioned tape.

You can hide the damage and add beveled mirror pieces to give the mirror a new look. Check out this link and go to to local glass shop to order. CRL Beveled Mirror Parts and Strips
