We needed a dark-focal-point mirror above our fireplace that has a white mantel. We're on a tight budget, so I felt that we had to 'settle' for a plastic frame. I purchased this oval mirror, with reservations; then hung it as soon as I got home. Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL touch it gave to our living room! It's just perfect, looks chic & charming, and my husband and I feel that we made just the right choice ~ at just the right price!
