How can I hang a mirror over moulding?

seaswirlJune 13, 2013

We went to check on the progress of our Hurricane Sandy wrecked house. Formerly, the bathrooms had large unframed mirrors from the light bar down to the vanity counter. Well, now the wall beadboard with moulding extends about 8" above the vanity counter and the light bar is about 12" above that. The full wall mirror is out and framed mirrors are in. How can I hang a framed mirror over the sink when the moulding sticks out about 1" from the wall?

I think your measurements sound off. If the vanity is 33" and the wainscot rail is 41" that puts the lighting at 53" which is only 4-1/2 feet off the floor.

If the vanity is 36" it raises it all 3" but that still puts the lighting at under 5 feet off the floor. This can't be correct, or if it is the lighting is in the wrong place.

DH added two wood filler pieces 1" square, painted wall color, to hang DD2s MBath mirrors over wainscot. You can see an end in last picture. If this bothers you, the filler piece can be made shorter.

A pivot mirror will bridge the wainscot trim:
