I ordered two in the wood frame and they are beautiful. The panel is a real statement piece, more than a backdrop. My mistake was in not measuring.

After trying them in different places, I decided they were too overpowering for any areas in my home and sent them back. I think they would work well on the top of a hutch or entertainment unit or deep mantle, none of which I have. They were $11 to return and with original shipping not refunded, an expensive “try out.” 

 

They are lovely and I’m not saying don’t buy, just be better prepared than I was for the size. 


Same thing happened to me.  It is a lovely piece, but too big for anyplace for me.  I sent mine back, too.

       Thank you both for your reviews!!   I love the look of the wood panel mirror, but always talk my self out of buying them.  I really do think they would be too large for any possible surface in my home!  Guess I'll just keep admiring them when Valerie shows them on her sets!!

I'm so sorry the mirrors didn't work out for you. And I really feel bad that you had to spend $11.00 to return them.
You're right, they do need a larger area than a fireplace mantel. I have a small round end table I bought from Pier 1 and that's where I'm going to use mine.

I feel bad that the mirror was too big for you to put anywhere.

They're lovely, one of her real winners. I ordered the gold a number of years back and liked it so much that when she offered other options, I also ordered the silver.

Over the time these have been offered, I have the silver, gold and white.  If I ever see the black in "as is", I'll probably get that too!
