Fig.1 Tape the mirror
By Gary Boutin

Part and Supplies:  
Bread board (pull the mirror)
Cordless screwdriver with Phillip tip
Duct (cloth) grey tape 
Kitchen large blade knife

Mrs. Escarole wanted a mirror removed from the master bathroom. She had tried to remove it herself but the mirror would not budge. She called my repair service to remove a 48 by 60 inch mirror.

This post shows five steps to remove a large mirror from a bathroom wall. 

Step 1: Above fig.1 shows the mirror is taped with grey duct tape for safety since the mirror will be removed from the wall. If the mirror did break the tape would keep it intact instead of breaking into many sharp pieces.
Step 2: Fig.3 shows a bread board was as a lever to pull the mirror off the wall. Any thin piece of wood would work.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the kitchen large blade knife cutting the adhesive from the mirror.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows the mirror was removed from the wall and donated the mirror to a local charity. We left the duct tape on the mirror.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows the last piece that hold the mirror, use a cordless screwdriver to remove the screws from the mirror trim.
