| The mirror that came with my childhood bedroom set was heavy, and it
| was hung with one or two picture hooks in the wall, holding the wire,
| PLUS two J-brackets (which right-angle corners on the bottom) holding
| it up at the bottom. Don't know if they were put into studs or not.
| When my mother moved she hired a **mirror** company to hang the
| mirror, and all they did was put in the picture hooks. Heck any
| jackass could do that, and before they finished she asked them if they
| were going to use the J-brackets. They said they didn't need them. 6
| hours after they left, the mirror fell off the wall, breaking the
| glass and the not-just-a-simple wood frame. They replaced the glass
| and claimed to have fixed the frame, but there is still a 3/16" gap at
| the 45^ joint where the side meets the bottom.
| We still have the bedroom set of course, and my nephew is using it. I
| don't want him to learn that shoddy workmanship is acceptable, but
| because of the mirror, I'm afraid to take the frame apart to reglue it
| correctly. Any suggestions?
put wood glue in the 3/16 joint and clamp it for about an hour or so.
unless the mirror is too big for the frame and it is pushing the joint
if thats the case
the mirror would have to be re-cut in order to fix the frame.
