  18. Seems like you did it harder. Instead of taking the tiles off 1 by 1 you should have just cut it in strips… You could have just cut the extra grid material off so you could place the tiles closer together but, I am about to do this to my headboard! Also  found sheets of tile that are actual flat cobble stones just like the tiles. Im going to put it in the bottom of my shower going around the drain of course. Great job

  21. In one comment where you were asked about the mirror clips, you said you just skipped around them, then on another with the same question you said you took them out. Are the two answers because you did two mirrors? I'd still like to know which was the best solution.

  27. Hi does tape hold up in steamy shower? Can you cut strips? Thx

    Reply
  28. I am in a rental and I am wondering if there was any residue left on the mirror after the tape was removed?

    Reply
  29. Great job. Wouldn't have been easier if you just cut the tiles since you only did two rolls on your mirror?

    Reply
  30. Wow! Good job! Do you remember the dimensions of your mirror? Trying to decide if I should buy 2 or 3 sheets of the tiles. Hope I get them at 5 dollars.

  34. Hi! Great idea. I love it. Do you think it will come off after awhile in humid bathroom? I'm so gonna try this out.

  35. Hello I really liked this idea, but I was thinking first with your mirror since it was much bigger than the first lady maybe you should add one or two more rows. Then I thought in time want the tape give out maybe because of heat or steaming shower? Why not try a glue gun it holds much better. Just a thought that's all I'm going to give it a try and upload the video. God bless!

  36. I love this idea! But i'm also wondering if it would look bad if i did not take the tiles off the mesh and just cut the strips since they are already lined up? I know there is a space there …

  37. Did it stay up well after the steam from the shower etc?

  38. Hi, how do you get over the two original plastic clips that were screwed in to anchor the mirror?  I want to do the same but I don't now how I can tile around the two clips?

  39. This is HOW NOT TO LAY MOSAIC TILE! First you buy mesh-backed tile instead of loose tiles which are much cheaper and thinner for mosaic work.  Then you spend labor in removing tile from backing.  This is not smart.

    You can buy loose mosaic tile at 1/8 inch thickness easily online. This is lighter than 1/4 inch sold at Home Depot. 

    In a rented place, pulling tape off walls will pull plaster off, not just the paint.  You will have a massive repair bill from landlord and lose your deposit.  It would be much smarter to buy 1/8 inch strips of wood, cut to size with a hacksaw to fit mirror as a frame.  Then you can glue mosaic around this, and nail around mirror to studs in the wall.  Finish off with some unsanded grout to fill gaps between tiles.  If you add a grout polymer additive, you don't need to seal it for moisture.  Use MAPEI Keracolor U from Lowes, and MAPEI Grout Maximizer additive.  Match grout color against tile.

    When you leave your rented place, pull back the strips from wall, fill in nail holes with spackler, lightly sand, and you are done.  No messs.

    There are no shortcuts in life, or in DIY projects.  Either you pay up front, or later.  You will pay in time and money either way.  Do it right the first time, and learn valuable skills so you are not dependent on men or paid professionals for minor projects.

  40. how did you get around the little plastic area to hold up the mirror to the wall?  Thank you.

  41. this is awesome and not a boring idea, do you think if you cut the tile length wise it would look spaced out on the mirror? and by cutting each tile and placing on mirror the tiles would touch together nicer?
    this is a great idea…thanks!
