I have a 30×60 inch mirror we salvaged from a clothing store. Because of the size I used eighth inch masonite as the backer with 1-1/2 inch brads/nails driven 2/3’s into the frame 12” apart. Nails were horizontal, not through the masonite and the mirror just left loose.

The salewis3 method.

PS I predrilled for the nails using the next size smaller brad so I could push into place rather than hammer.

-- I dream of a world where a duck can cross the road and no one asks why.
