I bought 2 of these mirrors for our new master bathroom and I couldn't be more pleased!! The photos shown on the website do not do these mirrors justice. They are unique, well-made and offered at a great price for the quality of the frame! I love the hand-scraped look and unique appearance of every teak wood 'tile' in the frame. The dark stain really warms up the bathroom and I love that the pattern of the inlaid teak wood pieces are reminiscent of the white, brick-patterned subway tiling we have on our bath and shower surround. A few things to note: 1 - It may be pure luck, but the stain on both mirrors I received is almost an exact match unlike what other reviewers have posted. One mirror is possibly a hair lighter than the other, but it's not noticeable unless you make a very, very careful study of it. 2 - The mirror itself is of low quality, which I expected based on other reviews. Of note, it is actually mirrored glass versus the bendable plexiglass-type mirror that I anticipated. But it appears to be the thinnest possible cut of mirrored glass and there are little "waves" within the mirror. I may end up ditching the mirrored glass that came in the frames and fitting them with a quality 1/4" cut of mirrored glass instead. I'm not sure, however, as the mirrors certainly do the job for styling hair, brushing teeth, and applying a touch of make-up. 3 - The dimensions listed on the product description are rounded up - actual dimensions for both of the mirrors I received are 21.5" x 27.5". I wish the mirrors were slightly larger (we were shooting for 24" x 32" for our bathroom), but the size works and is certainly not a deterrent given their unique beauty, quality, and price point. 4. - There are metal hooks already installed on the mirrors so that you can easily hang the mirrors either horizontally or vertically, but no hardware is included for hanging. This isn't a problem for us as our builder is hanging all of our bathroom mirrors. However, I'm sure it'll be an inconvenience if you're doing it yourself. Other mirrors we've bought for our other bathrooms include the hardware as well as the hanging brackets. But again, for the frame quality and price point, I would not let this stop me from purchasing these mirrors.
This little footstool is the right height and dimension for my small living room in an Appalachian bungalow. The style blends well with my very eclectic mix of antiques, oil paintings, and modern coffee table. I took off a point, however, because it came not assembled and required wood glue for the legs to be stable after screwing them in Although I could have done this myself, my husband, a professional tradesman, did the gluing for me. I felt that the product description online should have indicated a need for wood glue, which everyone may not have lying around. I took off another star because the leather and wood were so shiny they looked fake to me, especially the leather. What I did was first buff the leather seat with very fine steel wool to remove the shine; then I put a layer of mat cordovan shoe polish over it, and then buffed the polish in. Now, I think the whole stool looks more authentic. I am going to purchase some dark brown or black mat shoe polish and apply a coat, and buff it in with fine steel wool to bring out the leather tooling, which is pretty. I know the shiny thing is a matter of personal preference, so perhaps a whole star off is a little bit much. I would, however, buy this stool as a gift or purchase another if I needed one, because the style and size is great. It may not work as a side table with out a plate or tray, because of the tooling being raised up. But I think it is sturdy enough (with the wood glue) to be a little fireplace stool for a person to sit on, if they are not too terribly large.
