Running into difficulties installing bathroom mirror (pics of the nightmare incl.!)

That's a good idea, I'll def check those out next time I'm at the store!!

I kinda like industrial tho , do you think it's too 'industrial' just hung raw with beveled edges?

Its really a matter of personal preferance. My whole house had the frameless mirrors. We still havent changed them all, but we are slowly getting there. If you like industrial, you could frame it with metal trim. Just throwin out ideas. I try to add a little extra touch to most of what I do, and I would add some type of frame if it were me.

why would you need such a large mirror for a pedestal sink?

I don't get what the sink has to do with the mirror?

I like the large mirror for 3 main reasons
- it fits perfectly, like it was meant for that wall
- it makes the small bathroom look a bit bigger
- I'm re-installing the medicine cabinets that I ripped out onto the opposite wall, so (mostly my fiance) will have more visibility with the multiple mirrors (and since the mirrored medicine cabinets swing open, you'll really be able to position mirrors however you need, which'll be cool).



Also, about the pedastal, that's going away in the (not too distant) future. I've got an insanely long list of renovations/fixin that I need to do here, but after most of the more important things are done, I'm planning on building a vanity (I hate that pedastal sink, it has a small crack in its base, it wobbles, thing's just gotta go!).
