I have a Besta unit for shoe storage. It makes sense for us to put a mirror in that room, and the door seems a good spot. The door itself is about 25" x 50". Standard Ikea Tofta pressboard door with high gloss veneer.
So, we picked up an ikea mirror on sale. It seems the perfect size to put in the door, so I'm surprised there aren't any pages online about the combo.
Is this a safe combo? Will screw mounting in pressboard cause problems, Is there any way I can increase the hold in the pressboard? Or do I really need a bunch of mirror mastic?
And also can the hinges handle the extra weight? How can I tell? The unit is bolted to the wall, so it should be able to handle the extra weight without tipping.
I guess my worst case if this goes 100% south is replacing an Ikea door and a ten buck mirror, but I want to model this for future mounting questions.
