Replacing a vanity mirror in the bathroom can be daunting, especially if you’ve never done it before. But don’t worry! Trash Transporter is here to help with this step-by-step guide, removing your old vanity mirror is easier than you think—and you’ll have a new one up and running in no time.
What You’ll Need
Before you begin, make sure you have all the tools and materials you need for the job. To remove your vanity mirror, you will need the following items:
• Philips head screwdriver
• Safety glasses
• Putty knife or crowbar
• Multi-tool (optional)
• Socket wrench (optional)
• Hammer (optional)
• Towel or cloths (for preventing scratches)
• Replacement screws (if needed)
• New mirror of your desired size/shape/style
Now that you have everything ready to go, it’s time to start taking out that old mirror. Follow these steps to do so safely and efficiently:
1. Put on safety glasses to protect your eyes from any flying debris.
2. Use the putty knife or crowbar to loosen the edge of the frame around the mirror from the wall or cabinet surface.
3. Once it’s loose enough, use a multi-tool or socket wrench to remove any screws holding the frame in place.
4. Carefully pull away from the wall and place on towels/cloths so as not to scratch any surfaces.
5. If necessary, use a hammer and putty knife to break apart any remaining parts of the frame stuck in place on either side of where it was originally affixed before removal.
6. Set aside any screws that were originally used for mounting; they may be reused when installing your new mirror later on!
7. Finally, carefully lift out the old mirror and set aside until disposal at an appropriate recycling facility if possible.
8. Wipe down area where original mirror was attached with damp cloth prior to reinstallation of new one for best adhesion results!
Installing Your New Mirror
Now comes installation of your shiny new vanity mirror! Follow these steps below and keep in mind that depending on size & shape of replacement piece, mounting may require additional hardware such as anchors or toggle bolts – please check package instructions for details prior to starting this part!
1. Place towel over surface where replacement is going & lightly press into place just enough for adhesion – do not push too much as this may cause damage!
2. Use drill & appropriate screws provided with package if needed – make sure holes are properly aligned with studs before beginning installation process so there will be no misalignment once installed correctly!
3. Once securely fastened into place, remove towel from surface & wipe down edges clean with damp cloth – again this will ensure proper adhesion when finished installing replacement piece
4. Finally, attach decorative trim pieces if desired & admire your handiwork – congratulations!!
