If you love the look of subway tile, but aren’t in the position to start covering bathroom walls or kitchen backsplashes with it just yet (i.e. you’re in a rental or don’t have the budget to renovate), this project is worth taking a look at.   

Erin from House of Earnest covered a plain mirror in subway tiles, recently, to create a decorative frame that looks much more expensive than it actually is. Isn’t this such a clever way to make a basic mirror feel like a statement piece?

The total cost is around $30, so it’s a budget-friendly option for the subway tile lover in all of us. *You can easily switch out the tile for another option too, if this look isn’t your style. A colorful spanish tile would look really pretty. What would you choose?
