Antique sideboard-Hanging a mirror above an antique sideboard is a perfect way to compensate for the low height of the furniture and visually enlarge the room. Mirrors reflect light and that which is opposite them. Therefore, if you have an attractive piece of art or a great view, helps the mirror to create a pleasing visual effect. Fitting the mirror above the antique sideboard is not a tedious chore if you have the right tools.
Place the mirror on top of a large piece of newspaper. Trace the mirror. Cut the mirror shape. Attach the paper on the wall above the antique sideboard with masking tape. Move the paper, if necessary, to find the best location. This prevents you from having to the heavy mirror that can increase the chances of breaking it.
Mark the wall where the top edge of the paper rests on two sites near each end when you decide on the location for the mirror. This allows you to hang the mirror top edge of the two marks. Push the nail in the hole in the picture hanger hook. Hammer it into the wall at the mark, the bottom of the picture hook rests on the mark. The nail comes in at an angle and is effective at keeping the mirrors and all types of heavy decorative artwork.
