Boy do I know what it feels like to want a master bath re-do!! AJ and I aren't even in the new house yet, but it will be one of our first major projects sometime in the future. Worst part is, I don't think we will quite get away with spending $100!! It needs to be gutted, not just freshened. However, I do think yours can be accomplished for $100, and I think you have some great ideas.
Okay, first, the mirror...
I say leave it as is, but spruce it up with a frame!! I think between trying to get it off the wall, which isn't there a chance it could shatter?, and then spending the money to cut it, you should spend the money on getting the wood to frame it. Follow Isabella & Max's mom's lead. (Thanks to my own momma for the link!!) Plus, the bigger the mirror, the bigger the room will look which I think is key. As far as the black, I was thrown off a bit. I think your house is so quaint and charming and then you have the shabby chic curtain in those soft colors and you want to do the walls soft, so I would think the frame would look great in white. You know me though and white household objects. White dishes, white china, white towels, white sheets....
Then for the light I have two ideas. The first one, I am contemplating on doing in our downstairs guest bathroom.
1. Would you consider pulling a color, a muted color, from your shower curtain and spray painting the fixture that color? I also want beigey-white milky (weird description!) walls and so I thought a pop of color would be fun. I was going to paint the fixture, towel ring and toilet paper holder all the same.
2. Second suggestion...since you are saving the money on cutting the mirror, why not buy a new fixture?? They have some great choices at Home Depot for $30. Here's one and here's another. Might be worth checking out Target, too?!? Or even Wal-Mart.
I think you are on the right path. Let me know if any questions come up along the way. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Oh, and if you need some cheap accessories...TARGET! I will e-mail you this week about the cute things I found.
