– Hey, guys. It’s Ivy from How to House. If you’re anything like
me, you love a large mirror or a stunning art
piece, but you probably don’t love the stress
that comes with hanging something this big and heavy. Well, fear not, friends. Today, I’m going to
walk you through it. Step one to hang
something heavy like this, is knowing its weight. The weight will determine
what you need to hang it. At the hardware
store, there will be weight limits
on all the packages to help you pick what you need. Most pieces already have
hardware attached to the back, but if not, you
can simply attach these D-rings to the sides. And now it’s time to hang. Take your painter’s
tape and tape it from one side of your
mirror to the other, making sure that your
anchors are covered. Then, grab a pencil
and mark holes where you will need screws. Peel the tape off and head
to your wall with a level. Assuming you’ve measured
clearance where you want to hang your piece, eyeball
the tape at where you want the top of your mirror and
use a level to make sure it’ll hang straight. Then, pre-drill the
holes on the wall. Now you’re ready to
anchor, screw, and hang. Once you’ve got your
screws in, grab a friend and hang your piece. Don’t forget to grab your
level and adjust, if necessary. And there you have it. With a little patience
and the right hardware, your new mirror won’t
be bringing you seven years of bad luck anytime soon. Have you used any
of these techniques? Be sure to let me know
