My Remodelaholic Guest Post – How to Create a Sliding Mirror Over a Bathroom Window

(Inside: A sliding mirror over a window solves the big windows in a bathroom problem. We love how our sliding mirror over a bathroom window turned out.)

I’ve been following the Remodelaholic blog forever. It’s full of beautiful inspiration; I want to do every single one of their ideas.

(Or more accurately, just pin the ideas on Pinterest and feel incredibly accomplished and creative for only doing that.)

So when they contacted me to see if I would be willing to write a post for their blog about our master bathroom remodel and specifically our sliding mirror over the window, I think I might have briefly stopped breathing.

They wanted the post done in two weeks, but it took me more like six. I wrote, then rewrote, and took pictures, then retook pictures because I love their blog so much I wanted the post to be just right. I hope you have a chance to see my fun, surprise blogging opportunity on their page. And THAT is one of my favorite things about life: you never know what little pick-me-up is around the corner.

A glimpse of my guest blog post that includes a sliding mirror over a window…


My name is Cheryl and I blog over at Since I Became a Mom. (Update: Name changed to Empowered Moms & Kids.) I mainly write about motherhood, everyday faith, and when I see the two intertwine like in this post. I also throw in a little photography and updates on remodeling our home. (Join me on Facebook to follow along.)

My husband and I always wanted to update a home DIY-style. So, when we found a priced-right-but-in-need-of-TLC house we liked, we grabbed it. It’s been a lot of fun (and a lot of work) to make things our own. Here’s what we’ve finished so far:

  • kitchen (Including barn wood countertops and refacing our fireplace);
  • parents’ bedroom (We refinished the hardwood floors found under the carpet);
  • the downstairs bathroom (We added character with a cute built-in shelf); and
  • screened-in porch. We’ve also finished our downstairs basement, but pictures are not posted yet. And we are almost done with our sons’ bedrooms.


Today, I get to share with you our parent bathroom remodel and specifically how we created a sliding mirror across the window.


I hope you will head over to Remodelaholic to see more pictures and details in my full guest blog post.
