Looks like a beautiful design! How big is it? Any special mounting tricks or a mirror that big?

I believe it is 3ft x 5ft. I used a french cleat on the back to mount it to the wall. Enabled me to slightly recess the cleat and tie in the sides to the top, giving it some reinforcement. Plus you just mount and level the wall cleat and then literally hang the mirror on the wall, took all of a minute to hang.

Nice job Ivan.

A french cleat definitely seems like the way to go on something of that size. Ultra strong, since you can tie into the studs, as well as it being much easier to hold up a 2×4 (or whatever you used) than a large, heavy mirror.
