How To Install Magnetic Style
Framing a bathroom mirror can be a quick and easy DIY project that not only looks great, but is also functional. Using clips to frame the mirror creates a clean and modern look, while still allowing for flexibility. This tutorial will show you how to install magnetic style clips in just minutes.
What You’ll Need:
-Plywood or Masonite (18′ x 24′)
-Functional Mirror Frame (optional)
-Craft Knife or Saw
Step 1: Measure the top and bottom of the mirror you wish to frame. On the plywood or Masonite, draw a line corresponding to those measurements. This will be your cutting surface.
Step 2: Position the mirror so that the top of the frame lines up with your drawing line. Trace around the edge of the mirror with a craft knife or saw, making sure to cut deep enough into the plywood so that it forms a border around the entire mirror. Be sure to countersink any screw holes if you’re using screws.
Step 3: Cut out the traced area of plywood/Masonite. Now use clips to attach the mirror to both
The Pros and Cons of Using Clips
There are many ways to frame a bathroom mirror with clips, but before choosing a method you should consider the pros and cons of each.
The most common way to frame a bathroom mirror using clips is to attach the clips to the edge of the mirror itself. This method is easy to do, but it can be difficult to remove the mirror if you want to move it. Additionally, if the mirror hangs too low or too high on the wall, the clips may not be able to hold it in place.
Another option is to use magnetic strips to hold the mirror in place. This method is also easy to do, but it can be time-consuming if you have a large mirror. The magnets also tend to eventually lose their power, which could cause the mirror to fall off its mount.
The final option is to use suction cups. These cups come in several varieties (including metal and plastic) and can attach directly to the wall or ceiling. They are easy to install and remove, but they cannot hold a heavy mirror very well. Additionally, because suction cups are attached directly to the wall or ceiling, they can affect your traffic flow in the room.
The Importance of Prime vs Original Tape
When it comes to framing a bathroom mirror, there is a big difference between prime and original tape. Here’s why:
Prime tape is made from a thicker, heavier paper that has been coated with a sticky adhesive. It’s the most durable type of tape and it holds photographs and prints securely. Original tape, on the other hand, is made from thinner paper that’s not coated with adhesive and doesn’t hold photos or prints as well as prime tape.
There are a few final tips to keep in mind when framing a bathroom mirror with clips. First and foremost, make sure the frame is large enough to fit the mirror in question. When selecting the right clips, be sure to account for the width and height of the frame. Additionally, be sure to use a sturdy adhesive when attaching the clips, as moving or adjusting the mirror may cause them to come loose.
