Identifying Antique Dresser Styles

Mounting an antique dresser with mirror is a bit different from other mirror assembly projects. For this project, you will usually have a much larger mirror and have to work around and over an existing vanity. Placing a mirror on a dresser is often a difficult task for shorter people, so that you may need a little help holding the mirror in place during assembly.

Measure the length and width of the mirror and the area above your dresser to make sure that the mirror is large enough and fit into the top area of the vanity. Apply a thick or thin layer of industrial strength glue to the back of the mirror and the frame. Stand on a ladder and have a friend help guide the mirror into the proper position on the wall. Hold the mirror in place for a few minutes while the glue dries.

Screw to drive through the mirror frame and the wall above the vanity. Stop driving the screw before you get too close to the mirror or frame. You do not want to break the frame or the mirror. Use a manual screwdriver to tighten the screw so that it is flush against the mirror or frame. Frameless mirrors usually come with screw holes and covers, so they apply the screw covers at this time to hide the screws and creates the new courtesy mirror more attractive.
