My Remodelaholic Guest Post - How to Create a Sliding Mirror Over a Bathroom Window

I’ve been following the Remodelaholic blog for forever. It’s full of beautiful inspiration; I want to do every single one of their ideas. (Or more accurately, just pin the ideas on Pinterest and feel incredibly accomplished and creative for only doing that.) So when they contacted me to see if I would be willing to write a post for their blog about our master bathroom remodel and specifically our sliding mirror over the window, I think I might of briefly stopped breathing. They wanted the post done in two weeks, but it took me more like six. I wrote, then rewrote, and took pictures, then retook pictures because I love their blog so much I wanted the post to be just right. I hope you have a chance to see my fun, surprise blogging opportunity on their page. And THAT is one of my favorite things about life: you never know what little pick-me-up is around the corner.
 

A glimpse of my guest blog post...

 
My name is Cheryl and I blog over at Since I Became a Mom. I mainly write about motherhood, everyday faith, and when I see the two intertwine like in this post. I also throw in a little photography and updates on remodeling our home. (Join me on Facebook to follow along.)
 
My husband and I always wanted to update a home DIY-style. So, when we found a priced-right-but-in-need-of-TLC house we liked, we grabbed it. It’s been a lot of fun (and a lot of work) to make things our own. Here’s what we’ve finished so far: kitchen (Including barnwood countertops and refacing our fireplace); master bedroom (We refinished the hardwood floors found under the carpet); the downstairs bathroom (We added character with a cute built in shelf); and screened-in porch. We’ve also finished our downstairs basement, but pictures are not posted yet. And we are almost done with our sons’ bedrooms.
 
Today, I get to share with you our master bathroom remodel, and specifically how we created a sliding mirror across the window.
 

I hope you will head over to Remodelaholic to see more pictures and details in my full guest blog post.

  1. Wow what a great re-model of the house. The bathroom looks fantastic. That sliding mirror just adds to the look so well! My wife and I are also looking into re-model our bathroom and your post has given me inspiration to get up and do it. Thank you for the great ideas and we wish you all the best. Thanks.

  2. We just finished the same type mirror on a larger scale. We actually hung ours on the wall and behind it I built a little cut out were we can store toilet paper, the hair dryer, all the stuff that used to be piled on top of the vanity. Now we have a killer mirror and all the clutter is removed.

  3. This is a great post and you took some excellent photographs. The one thing that I would suggest for yourself and for your readers is that you include a before picture as well. The after shots and the work done look great but we can't see how far you've come. Simply adding a coat of paint and more importantly replacing some plumbing fixtures can give you a whole new room in the house.
