Cool 1/2 Bath finished results

Just thought I would post some pictures of 1/2 bath that I have finished. Thanks to all that have given me their advise on this forum. All the advise definitely help me since I was a firstimer when it came to laying tile.

Tile is 12 x 12 polished limestone. The cabinent and mirror I made my self. Cabinet has drawer to put all my stuff. Handle for cabinet was on order when picture was taken. Sorry for poor picture quality.

Thanks again for all the help.

Tim,
Very nice work. Any words of wisdom on building your own mirror frame. It seems I'll have to also do it myself as I can't seem to find what I want.

Thanks,
Richard

Talking Mirror

I would figure out what size glass mirror you want and then get the glass cut first. I made my frame frist then stained it. When I picked the mirror up it was almost to small since 1/8" shorter than ordered. I guess cutting glass does have a tight tolerance on it.

I used pocket screws to join my pieces together. Only took about 30 minutes to cut and screw frame together.

I also used keyhole router bit to put slot on back. I put two screws in wall and then slid mirror over them.

Glass should be cut about 1/8" short of the internal opening to allow for expansion and contraction of the wood. You can get little rubber balls or spacers at the glass shop to keep the mirror centered in the frame.
