Mirror Installation (with 1″ to spare!)

Mirror Installation (with 1″ to spare!)

We had to hang this large antique mirror (about 60 pounds worth!) on a plaster wall. The wall was 54″ high and the mirror is 53″! Very little room to do it. We took to measuring and drilling and sinking anchors. The finished piece is exactly 1/2″ from the ceiling and 1/2″ from the mantle, I think it works fine! Whew!

Contemporary Framed Mirror!

Contemporary Framed Mirror!

At Elite Framing in Columbia SC’s Five Points Shopping District we do a fair number of custom mirrors. This is a recent one that we did to a client’s exact specs. We used a contemporary silver moulding, the overall size is about 26″ x 36″. Extra Cool! And would you look at all of the different sizes and colors this frame is available!

Multi-Mirrored Wall!

Multi-Mirrored Wall!

This was a difficult installation job, each mirror measured 24″ x 48″ and had welded hanging hardware on the back (all of the hardware was at different heights!) Elite Framing had to hang the three of them as one, with all lines and levels being perfectly aligned. It took an hour to measure and compensate for the differences, but, once the drill bit hit the wall, everything was perfect. We used wall anchors as each mirror weighed about 50 lbs. Turned out nicely, we’d say!

We framed this big mirror recently, it measures about 56″ x 46″ (big and HEAVY!) How would someone hang such a large heavy mirror? Don’t worry about it! Have us hang it for you! We used a 3″ transitional pewter moulding on this big boy. We included the Moon Dog in the photo for a sense of scale. (note Jake working hard in the background!) Come see fantastic mirror frames at Elite Framing in Five Points!
