Hanging a Wall Mirror
When hanging your wrought iron wall mirror, you want to be careful that you select the right type of mounting hardware. Your mirror should arrive with most of the necessary hardware, but even if not, the necessary hooks and screws can be found in any hardware or home improvement store.
You need to know the weight of the mirror when selecting the hardware, to assure it's rated to handle that amount of weight. Because larger mirrors can be quite heavy, it is ideal to hang them from a screw inserted into a wall stud. However, if a wall stud isn't located in the area where you need to center your wrought iron wall mirror, then a second option is to use an anchor to set the screw more securely in the dry wall or plaster.
Next, you will need to identify where to hang the mirror. You can determine the appropriate height based upon your personal preference, but you will likely need a tape measure or yardstick to assure that you center the mirror on the wall or over the piece of furniture where the mirror will hang. Once the location is determined, you will need to mark the spot. The video below shows an easy method of doing this, all without making marks on your walls.
The distance from the edge of the frame to the hook(s) will need to be measured and then marked on the wall as well. This will tell you where to put your mounting hardware in the wall. (See the video for details) Using a level will assure your mirror will hang straight.
The screws should be inserted, leaving approximately 1/4" out so that the hooks can be placed securely over them.
