Forgive the less than perfect pictures, this bathroom needs new lighting desperately, and there was not a lot of room to back up and take a picture. ;) I have had this project on my to-do list FOREVER. I even bought two trim pieces
LAST YEAR a long time ago. In the meantime, I used one of those pieces for my Casablanca headboard. We somehow always end up needing something from Lowe's when we're on date night. Last week was no different, and I decided to buy new trim pieces and try again. The ones we decided on were called Colonial chair rail moulding. It was $12.99 for 8 ft. and I needed two of these pieces. I didn't take step by step pictures, because I was kind of playing it by ear. I tried using wood glue to make the frame one piece on the ground, before painting. I taped them together, but only one of the four corners adhered together. I'm not sure if I didn't use enough glue, but I decided to attach them to the mirror without first making a frame.
Sunshine art and I loved it! It's fun to have a new trick in your bag. Try it on a scrap piece of wood before you do a whole project, to see if it floats your boat.
By the way, did you know that Lowe's has a new My Lowe's card that will track your purchases for you? You scan it when you pay and it will keep track of your paint colors (!!!!), allow you to return without a receipt, etc. Its free, and it's great! I just used it right now to look up the name of my trim. ;)
