help putting mirrors inside of china cabinet

Posted by vintagelover (My Page) on

I have a new china cabinet that did not come with mirrors. I really want to put mirrors in it, but cannot find anyone local to do this. I live in a rural area so there are few glass dealers.

I can have the mirrors cut, how would we go about fixing them to the back panel? The back panel is plywood, my husband is concerned that the glass will be too heavy to glue. There will be two pieces of mirror, each sized at 3'x 3'28".

If anyone can help with this, I would be very thankful!

I think they have tape for attaching mirrors to walls. You might be able to use this same tape to attach them to the back of the cabinet. Then maybe run some quater round molding on the top and bottom. You might have to nail the back to the shelf.
