3.6/5 based on 5 visitor(s)
The process of packing pictures and
mirrors is a simple one. With a little time and the right materials, your pictures and mirrors will be safely packed and ready for the
move to your new home.
What You'll NeedFor packing pictures and mirrors, you should
have the following supplies: Mirror boxes, Bubble wrap, Stack of brown packing
paper, Roll of packing tape, Permanent marker
How To Pack Pictures and MirrorsLay the picture frame face down
in the middle of a stack of brown packing paper, and, using a few sheets, wrap
it in the same way you would wrap a gift. Neatness isn't important: just make
sure it's wrapped tightly. Use plenty of tape to ensure the frame is secure. You
can wrap particularly delicate frames in bubble wrap before using packing
Even though the frame will be put into a box, it's a good idea to
label it once it's wrapped. You can indicate which picture it is and to which
room it belongs in your new home.
Next, start preparing your mirror box.
Generally, a mirror box is made up of two pieces that fit around the frame and
can be adjusted to whatever size you need.
Take one section of the mirror
box, and stuff some packing paper into the corner and sides of it. This will
give your frame some cushioning. Do the same with the other side of the
Next, slip the frame into one side of the box and press it firmly
into the paper. Add some extra paper around the frame if necessary. Then, slide
the other portion of the mirror box into the first and over the frame. Push the
two pieces of the box firmly together to ensure the frame won't move around.
Tape all the way around the top and bottom of the box to keep the two sections
You can pack multiple frames in a single box if space permits;
just make sure there's plenty of cushioning in between frames. Mirrors can be
packed using the same method.
If you're packing a larger frame or mirror, you may need to use four
sections of mirror box. In this case, after padding each section with packing
paper, slide a section of box over each corner of the frame. Use plenty of tape
to secure it.
Always remember to label all your boxes
with their contents and destination. That
way, you or your movers
know where to put each box in your new home.
