An intervention might be required. I’m obsessed with glass tiles. If I can find a place to use them, I will! My boys’ beach themed bathroom was almost complete and a finishing touch was to make a frame for their mirror. But this time I wanted to try something different with it. What about adding glass tile?! My palms started to get sweaty from excitement! Strange you may think, but when the creative juices start flowing there’s no holding me back! Decorating a mirror with tile is so simple you just won’t believe it!
If your mirror doesn’t have a frame then click my tutorial on How to Frame A Mirror.
I had some tile left over from my master bathroom which I decided to use. It’s a stone and glass tile mosaic called Seabreeze from Lowe’s.
Remove the foam backing and cut the tile into strips with scissors. I chose rows of two, which fit my frame perfectly.
Then dot on clear silicone adhesive on each tile. Press onto the frame.
Now here’s the hard part.. allow the silicone to set for 24 hours. I only waited 18 hours, shhh…
Apply outdoor mounting adhesive to the back of the frame on the corners and the sides then press against the mirror.
I’m loving how it turned out! My boys gave me a, “Wow, that’s cool mom!” seal of approval. Decorating a frame with tile is so simple and with the vast array of tiles to choose from, you can create something incredibly customized!
