Thank you for using Just Answer!

Lay the mirror face down on the floor or bed and attach the two metal rails to the wood frame of the mirror. Put one rail on each side of the mirror frame for support. Take your screws and screw them through the metal rail and into the wood frame of the mirror. Be sure that you do not use screws that are too long and protrude through the other side or hit the mirror itself. The track should now be attached to the back of the mirror and make sure that you have left enough track below the mirror frame to attach to the dresser itself.

Next, set the mirror on top of the dresser (centered). While another person holds the mirror frame in place, go ahead and take some more screws and screw them through the metal track and into the frame of the dresser. You should now have the two metal tracks screwed into the back of the dresser and the back frame of the mirror. Be careful when moving the dresser back in place, it is common for the mirror to still wobble back and forth, but it is secure.
