Hanging a mirror on a wall
Marking a level line

Step 1: Trace the Mirror then Mark a Level Line

Start by placing your mirror on the wall where you want it to hang. Take a pencil and carefully trace around the entire mirror. This will give you a clear outline of where the mirror will be placed.

Grab your level and draw a straight, level line across the wall. This will serve as your guide to ensure that your mirror hangs perfectly straight.

Marking the mirror hooks

Step 2: Mark Tape at Mirror Hooks

Locate the mirror hooks on the back of your mirror. Place painter’s tape across the back of the mirror, from hook to hook. Mark the spots where these hooks are, as they will align with the level line.

Removing painters' tape

Carefully remove the painters' tape from the back of the mirror, keeping it flat.

Step 3: Place Tape Across the Level Line

Now, take the piece of painter's tape from the back of the mirror and place it across the level line, making sure the marked points align with the level line. This tape will act as a guide for your drilling.

Predrilling the holes

Step 4: Predrill Holes at Marked Tape

Using your drill, predrill holes at the points marked on the tape. This step is crucial to ensure that the anchors go in smoothly and securely.

Tapping in the anchors

Step 5: Tap in Anchors

Insert wall anchors into the predrilled holes. Give them a gentle tap with a hammer to ensure they are snugly in place. These anchors will provide extra support for your mirror.

Drilling in the screws

Step 6: Drill in Screws

Now, it's time to drill in the screws. Place them into the anchors and use your drill to secure them to the wall. Make sure they are tight and secure.
