Overall, I really like this mirror, but I had to make one modification to the decorative detailing on the frame that made it look cheap, and wasn't obvious in the product photo. There are several bright red splotches of paint added to the frame to make it look aged, but I don't think they were done very well and didn't have the effect that was intended. I took some black craft paint, watered it down and dabbed it over the red splotches to make them look less obvious and more aged. It was very simple and did the trick. The mirror now has the character of an interesting aged piece.
I ordered two of these for my mom's dinning room to go on either side of a round wood frame mirror she already had. From afar it looks great but up close you can see the poor craftsmanship. The mirror itself is of good quality but the glued on clothe print had fraying all around the edge and was a bit crooked and the splatter of red paint on the wood frame looked haphazardly done. I guess it at least looks handmade?
Mirror is very nice but color is quite different than it appears in photo. Red is very prominent. Red on the black frame is also distracting and I will try to cover it up as a previous reviewer recommended.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? no, color is much more red than appreciated in photo. expected background to be more green and it is beigh
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is very nice
I like the painting in the mirror. But I feel it is a little small unless you hang it over a small wall area. The quality of the mirror isn't as expected. The paint doesn't seem to hold on the frame well and easily peeled off. Since it is dark so it is easy for you to put touch up on it. The frame material doesn't like to be made of wood. It is more like press wood. I got one replacement as the first one got damaged at the corner of the frame. But the replacement got the same frame damage and I can see the material in the frame. So I think those who got the perfect no damaged mirror are really lucky. I plan to repair myself as return and talk to customer service cost time too. The overstock customer service is excellent as I experience many issue and got resolved happily. I think I really want such mirror to go with my dinning room. So even quality and size aren't perfect, but I still want to keep it as it bring unique to my house.
