So, a quick tutorial on taking a boring mirror to a fabulous chunky mirror - - here's how to:
First, let's recall the "before". I forgot to take a picture, but it turns out I already had been using it for a few WIWW posts - here's one:
Then, go buy some chunky trim. I first thought I'd layer several pieces of trim, but this one was pretty chunky just by itself, no layering needed.

Settled into it's corner in my bedroom (mental note - make the bed when taking pictures in the mirror!!) - the trick was I needed to look into the mirror and not be backlit, so it sits kind of in front of the window.
So go grab some trim and make yourself a chunky mirror!! Or you could use fabric and make one like this...
