You might be thinking, “How can we improve the look of our mirror?” What if I told you that it’s possible to do this without having any professional intervention?
The first thing you need to do is measure the width of your mirror. Next, take one of a sconce and hold it against the width of the wall where you want to hang it. Place it at a height which will make sense when hung next to a different sized mirror. From here on in, what you’re doing is measuring how far down from the top of your sconce there are 60cm or 2 feet (depending on your local measurements). Once again place another piece against this wall and mark that height. You can now take away the first piece of sconce. Take the second piece and mark it at 60cm or 2 feet downwards from the top.
Now, get a spirit level and hang it from a cord or string at this height. Adjust your sconce until it is perfectly horizontal (or vertical if you have a particularly tall mirror) with the spirit level supporting it. Next, simply use a pencil to mark where your screw holes need to go through the back of your sconce for them to be fixed correctly when you hang them on the wall. You can now remove your paper template, take off any rough edges and make sure that they look perfect before painting (or whatever you’re going to do with them).
