    Hi everyone. A kid on a bicycle broke my side mirror. Everything on the mirror still works (the mirror moves with the button, the camera works, the sensor, the light, etc). But the piece where it connects to the car and swivels is broken. The local auto body shop and the dealer quoted me...

    Odd Bathroom Mirror Situation... Anyone have a suggestion!? (see attachement) Our bathroom has a window right in the middle of the only wall that a mirror could be used on.

    I just decided over the weekend that I wanted to do woodworking. I have always desired it but never actually pursued it. I went out and purchased a circular saw, jigsaw, drill and staple gun (plan on doing upholstery). But I also ended up purchasing a MONSTER mirror. It is frameless, 99" x...

    I have an old bathroom mirror that was framed by adhering the frame directly to the glass. Hence, when you see it from behind, all you see is the mirror, no frame edge. Here's the dilemma: I can't add hangers because there is no wood for them to screw into. I can't use plastic clips because...

    I have a large framed bathroom mirror (72x42") and I would like to take it off the frame and make this a floating mirror on some kind of mounts. I thought this would be relatively easy, but I can not find out how this type of mirror is mounted. My hardware stores have not been any help and I...
