Mount Nissedal mirror away from the wall

by Andrew Wilkinson   Last Updated May 16, 2019 12:21 PM

I have an shallow space which I would like to use for some additional storage, with a mirror as a door. The space is only 15cm deep, so I've not been able to find something that I could buy to fill the space. This leads me down the route of building something myself.

I was planning to use Ikea Mosslanda picture ledges for the shelves, and a Nissedal mirror mounted on hinges as 'door'.

The picture ledges are obviously not intended to have mirror attached to the front of them. So how can I mount the mirror (which weighs just over 6kg), 12cm from the plasterboard wall?

My first thought was to use two pieces of wood (one for each hinge), and attach the mirror those. However, I'm not sure how to securely attach the wood to the wall. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
