The Stockholm mirror has 2 little eyelets on the back off to the left and right.
One way to hang the mirror is to measure the distance between the eyelets and put nails/screws precisely lined up with the eyelets. This seems like a recipe for lots of mistakes.
I found a better solution.
The basic idea is to hang the mirror from a wire that stretches across the back of the mirror on a single hook.
Step 2 – Attach the D-rings to the mirror
Attaching the D-rings to the mirror is the best part!
D-rings generally come with wood screws to screw into picture frames. We won’t be using these wood screws.
(Check-out this article on What is a D-ring?)
Instead, you’ll need the 2 screws and nuts. The mirror is hung off the head of the screws. The nuts secure the screw to the D-ring.
Step 3 – Loop the wire/twine through the D-rings
After both D-rings are secured to the mirror eyelets, loop the wire/twine through both D-rings.
Step 4 – Nail the picture hook to the wall
Find a stud in your wall, and nail the picture hook into the stud.
