Other options to hanging the mirror on a wall
So I recently moved and my new apartment has all concrete walls. I cant drill into the walls to hang up my mirror so I wanted to ask here if anyone has any other ideas for a way to display my mirror? It weighs a solid 30lbs or so, so I was thinking of using an art easel perhaps?
Thanks in advance!
My mirror is hanging over an electric outlet. With a proper drill you can drill a hole in concrete.
@Charley The issue is that i’m only renting and it’s in my lease to not make any holes in the walls. I have a concrete drill bit so I may end up just doing that anyways if I can’t come up with another solution.
Some options where discussed here:
@orayoflighto Appreciate it! I was able to get my mirror hung up in the end with very tiny (yet amazingly sturdy) wall tacks. Was helpful going through the other options though
You could try mounting it flush with the back edge of a dresser. A couple of vertical supports that can be screwed into the back of the dresser can also be attached to the back of the mirror. You could probably get away with a couple of 1" x 1" x 12" wooden boards that are screwed into the mirror box and the back of your dresser.
The whole thing can then be pushed up against a wall and you will have a mirror sitting on your dresser.
Edited to add: Or spring for a couple of flat aluminum stock. 1" wide, 12" long, 1/8" thick or so. Drill holes, screw into dresser & frame. This would add less space to the depth of your setup.
