  • Did this to my outdated bathroom before putting my house up for sale and it added value/appeal. Some tips I learned during this project: 🔨paint both sides because you will be able to see some of the frame in the reflection 🔨don't apply too much adhesive or too close the edge...you don't want to see it in the reflection 🔨until adhesive dries I wouldn't get the bathroom too steamy/đźš«moisture
