How to hang a heavy mirror on plaster and lath wall?

by Ann

As much as I love my older house, plaster and lathe walls do make it difficult to hang heavy items. I can use Command hooks for lighter framed items, but I would like to hang a 30 pound mirror over my fireplace and would love some advice from anyone who has accomplished something like this successfully on the type of walls I have. Thank you!
