After two days of adding and removing from my cart I decided to take the plunge. It arrived well protected. No chip or scratches. I bought it for my mirrored vanity. It is beautiful. It looks way more expensive than its cost. You will not be disappointed. Wish I can upload a picture.
This Alanna mirror looks great in my powder room. It's very substantial and heavy (FYI) so you have to be a bit careful in making sure it's mounted well. But after that piece, you can enjoy a very elegant look that compliments many types of decor. The picture was hard to really see detail, so I looked the mirror up online and saw that it is often used by designers who show their work on *** . I felt that was a solid recommendation in favor of the mirror, and it's quite right since it really has a great look. You may have to dust it a bit more since it has the tiered edge, but it's quick. The mirror looks expensive and elegant and it's a nice quality. I've included a photo.The right edge is darker which is only because of my reflection when taking the picture.
For the most part I am very pleased with my mirror. It came very well packaged and my husband was able to hang it quite easily. It added some needed pizazz to my main floor bathroom. The only negative I have to add is that some of the beveled mirror frame could have been placed/aligned a little more carefully. As a buyer, I noticed this but as someone touching up their makeup, I don't think it would be noticeable. Either way, it wasn't worth sending it back, and overall I'm very happy with it.
I bought this mirror primarily for its size, to match the vanity it's behind (32" wide) and for the brightness of the lights which I hoped would light up the room. However, the ballast was bad. I am renovating an apartment which needs to be completed soon, and so returning this mirror and crossing my fingers that a replacement would arrive on time and have a good ballast was too big a risk. The ballast "worked," but it had a very loud 60hz buzz. So, I ordered a replacement Philips electronic ballast off of amazon, and had plans of swapping it out. No problem, I thought, at ~$15 it was cheaper than a return. However, the ballast in this mirror is NOT a standard ballast. the 2G11 bulb sockets are also unconventionally wired to this unconventional ballast--a ballast you will be unable to find for sale. So on top of replacing the ballast, I had to disassemble everything, the sockets too, and more than double the number of wires stuffed into the case to make it a typical 2-bulb fluorescent wiring diagram. Also, the lighting--which is very powerful compared to LED variants, is woefully diminished by the mirror and its frosted glass windows. Only a small fraction of the 5,000+ lumens or so these two lamps produce actually leave the fixture, so it cannot light up a room on its own. On the plus side, this mirror runs hot, and is effectively a fancy de-fogger mirror... Despite my issues which ate up an extra $20 and several hours, the mirror has a nice look and is perfect for the space I bought it for... and I'd still recommend taking a chance on it.
