How To: Framing Mirrors with Crown Molding
A bad, boxy room gets new life with cool new architectural details.
Tools and Materials:
pneumatic nail gun
table saw or chop saw
five 20"x20" polished mirrors
- Lay out mirrors on a flat surface where they will not be damaged. Measure dimensions around mirrors to determine how much molding you will need.
- Using the chop saw, cut molding to fit around the mirrors like a picture frame. With the table saw, cut a groove on the back of the frame for the mirror to sit in. The grooves should be the same depth as the thickness of the mirror.
- Nail and glue the frame of the mirror together. Once this has dried, attach the mirror to the frame with the glazing points.
- Determine where the mirrors will be hung along the wall and measure, making sure they are evenly spaced and level. Use a nail gun to secure the mirrors to the wall.
