Step 1: Attach Hangers

Two 40-pound hangers are used to support the mirror. One is nailed directly into a stud, the other into the wall. The two hangers will provide plenty of strength to hold the mirror in place. They also make it easy to align.

The positioning of the wall hangers is measured carefully to ensure the desired placement of the mirror.
