About the Consumer Grand Prize Winner
For the consumer competition, husband and wife team Ann and Tom Cychosz of Southlake, TX took 1st place for their do-it-yourself bathroom remodel, which included a mirror makeover using MirrorMate frames in Tribeca Burnished Brown. While Tom is a Technical Support Manager and Ann is a Medical Laboratory Tech in their full time jobs, for this all-out bathroom makeover the two also took on the tasks of electricians, plumbers, wall paper removers, painters, lighting experts, cabinet strainers and tile layers.
"Our advice to any do it yourselfers is research, plan and source your supplies prior to starting the project," said Ann Cychosz. "MirrorMate was just the solution for the old mirrors."
In the professional category, Home Stylist Brenda Spencer of Spencer Staging & ReDesign in Austin, TX took 1st place for her client's mirror makeover, also using a MirrorMate frame Tribeca Burnished Brown.
"The frame compliments the oiled bronze finishes and rich tones of the granite counter top," said Brenda. "The frame was also the inspiration for the new finish on the cabinets."
"This makeover was particularly impressive and unique as it featured three plate glass mirrors that meet on three separate walls," said MirrorMate President Lisa Huntting.
About the "Rate My MirrorMate Makeover" Contest
