Mirror Mirror on the wall - You look so awesome

The magical mirror has been nearly done forever now. I finally took the time today to put the finishing touches on. It has been so long sine we had the ol' plain-jane mirror, I almost forgot how much better it looks now.
Here's the before:
And after: {with a nice reflection of the on-going construction in the bathroom}
I described how I got the frame look before... but just in case you missed it we can take a quick look.
With tons of left-over trim, I found 3 pieces that looked good together. I put the pieces up separately using screws sparingly, and liquid nailing like I'd never be able to liquid nail again.
 Unfortunately while putting up the 3rd type of trim, I got a little too close to my mirror. Blast it all. I cracked that stupid mirror. Luckily I found out that mirrors aren't too expensive if you just get them from a glass shop. I ordered the mirror and picked it up about 2 hours later.
I did the whole thing over again {more carefully this time} and wallah! After some putty, some sanding, and some painting, the mirror looks fantastic. It looks especially great with the 2 roses my sweet husband got me for our 2nd anniversary. Woo! Go us!

Oh, and you might notice the picture that looks like it was taken by a ghost? Our place isn't really haunted. More like: I wasn't exactly dressed decent to be taking pictures of myself. I might get a little over-heated too easily... Anyways, the mirror turned out great.
