How to Hang a Picture : Hanging a Mirror on the Wall


My name is Craig Hale. I am an interior decorator
and I am helping Expert Village.com today talk about ways to decorate your walls and
different types of objects it is decorated with and also how to even arrange them on
your wall. Measure up in our case eleven inches which is half of 22 inches and that is going
to be where the top of your mirror will hang. Next, what you will do is take and find depending
on how your mirror is hung, this one is a little bit of a bear to hang. You know is
not just a simple one nail job. Do not be discouraged. What you do is take your trusty
tape measure, measure from the top of one hanger over to the next and you get 19 inches.
So after you have figured out the distance between the two hangers, the next is to figure
out how high it is from or how low it is from the top of the mirror, which is 2.5 inches
on both sides. So 2.5 inches for down from the top of your mirror is where you will start
marking your nails. So now that we know that we have got 19 inches between the two spaces
and we need to be down 2.5 inches, we will mark the 2.5 inches down from the top of our
mirror, take our trusty level, make sure we get it leveled and then mark over from your
center point. So now that we have our mirror hung, let us recap what we did. We measured
from the ground up five feet, marking out the center point of our mirror, then we took
the height of our mirror and measured up half of that distance which was 11 inches, our
overall height was 22. Then we found the distance between the two holes in the mirror to hang.
Measure the distance from the top of the mirror to the top of the hole, had our level line
drawn, nailed it and hung it and it only took us a minute.
