Hanging a mirror

Hi, I got stuck (after divorce) with finishing out a house in the process of being built. I'm pretty handy with these DIY projects, but was wondering the best way to hang a mirror (approx. 2 ft by 4 ft) in my son's bathroom. I have bought 2 pieces of j-molding when I purchased the mirror, but am not really sure how to put it up and what I need to do to anchor it to the wall (i.e., toggle bolts if I don't hit a stud, etc.)

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Wendy

You can buy a mirror mounting kit from the hardware stores for mounting a mirror of this size. The kit usually contains the retainer clips and the anchors and screws for installing the clips in the wall.
