Sometimes there are things in your home that you want changed, but somehow keep falling to the bottom of the list. That was the case with my parents bedroom. My parents have a huge mirror in their bedroom that had an ugly gold "frame" that held it in place. They love the effect the mirror has on the room, but not that gold frame.
But, not just any moulding. Home Depot carries a brand called Focal Point. It is a Polyurethane product. Unlike regular wood moulding, it is extremely light weight making it very easy to work with. Their mirror is extremely large, and the existing gold frame used to hold the mirror on the wall truly cheapened the look. Using a basic miter box the molding was measured and then cut on a 45 degree angle.
Using glue and a couple of finishing nails it was attached to the mirror. The old gold frame remains underneath, completely hidden by the new beautiful frame. This is the new look of the mirror. Can you believe how much better that looks?

Check back later in the week. I will show you how I made the neck roll you see on the West Elm chair (which by the way - the chair was on sale - YES!).
