We've replaced an old, funky medicine cabinet with this stylish mirror in our bathroom. The silver frame within the black frame adds a touch of elegance and matches our brushed nickel fixtures. It has sturdy hooks on the back so you can hang it horizontally or vertically.
This mirror was packed very well in two layers of bubble wrap. Hanging the mirror wasn't a problem. It's recommended by the manufacturer that you hang each side and not use picture wire on the pre-installed "D" hooks. So, you *must* use a level (not included). The "silver" part of the mirror's design has a slight relief-style design. After I hung the first mirror, I noticed two slight nicks in the silver. If hanging above a fireplace, you won't likely notice any possible imperfections. That said, the other mirror looked just fine.
We needed something over the fireplace and had been looking for awhile, decided to go with a mirror vs. art. This was the right price and the perfect size so I took a chance. Other reviews had issues with shipping/packing, I did not. This was packed well and there were no nicks or scratches in the frame or the mirror. There are hooks to hang it horizontally or vertically. The top of our fireplace is wood so I used 6 sets of 3M strips (3 top/3 bottom) to secure it so as not to permanently mark/damage the wood, in case I decide to redecorate some day and put something different up. This item has some weight to it, but is not overly heavy or unwieldy and is easily handled by one person. Overall great, quality item and highly recommend
This is a great looking mirror for a very fair price. However, it arrived with a not-minor dent along the side, which was perplexing, considering that the packaging and box itself was completely undamaged. The dent is quite visible on the display side of the mirror and no amount of creative positioning could hide it. So unfortunately it will have to go back. What a pain! Hopefully the replacement one will be unblemished.
