Hi Karen,

Take your mirror w/you to a (Picture) Frame Shop. They'll set you up. If it turns out that when you hang the mirror it seems to be 'tilted' downwards, just put a 1/2" or 3/4" or even a 1" piece of 'something behind the BASE of the mirror. Start w/a piece of newspaper, or something rolled up until you get the mirror to 'reflect' perfectly straight ahead when you stand in front of it. You may need 2 'blocks', or something (1 for 2 'sides' of the base) to keep it from 'tilting' sideways. Know what I mean?

Be sure to try and find a Wall Stud (a 2 x 4) to nail your nails into. If you can't do that, be SURE that you use wall hardware that will support the weight of the mirror.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
