The mirror is affixed with original metal brackets. The frame is about 3" wide by 1" poplar moulding. But you can use any moulding you like. It's notched out around 1/2" in to go around the mirror. So buy a moulding that you will have enough room to make the notch! So a door casing might be a bit too thin.

Little bit of glue & finishing nails. "No More Nails" is also pretty good. Just pre-fit it before you nail it

Remember to paint the inside notch, it will reflect in the mirror!
