Very nice frame, thank you.

Worth the Wait

This mirror was back ordered for a month or so but so glad I waited for it. Just beautiful against the pale lilac walls in my bedroom although it would look great in many places throughout our home. Great quality, versatile and good price point. Highly recommend!

Pretty mirror

Just as described. We could hardly believe how well these mirrors were packed. (We actually bought 3 mirrors, 2 different styles.) We were afraid 1 might be received cracked, but the many layers of packing saved the day! Would recommend this company for pretty, but reasonably priced mirrors.
