What I can do with 2 old large dresser mirrors



2 very large dresser mirrors, in original wood frames, sitting in closet for 10+ years. Too big to hang on wall as both are very heavy. I live in a mobile home and walls arent strong enuf.

    I have had the huge mirrors that were attached to the wall behind that bathroom sinks cut down to the size I want and framed. You may be able to use the original wood frames for something else or have them cut down to work for you now. If you are handy(I am not) you could DIY.

    Lucky you for having large mirrors. Good ones are so expensive now. You have studs in your walls (probably 1x2's 12 to 24 inches on center). Go to a box store and get a 1x2; locate the studs. You can nail the 1x2 to the studs and hang the mirror on it. Or you can hang on chains from the studs from the wall's top studs that are usually double 1x2's or even 2x2's). Make sure to cut the 1x2 to the size of mirror (sometimes if you ask nicely, someone at the box store will cut it for you if you don't have the tools).
