I Can't Commit
Six months ago I saw this large, hand-carved & gilted convex mirror labeled 'antique' and have been longing for it ever since. It's enormous, heavy and certainly a statement. This lousy photo hardly does it justice. Yet, the $600 price tag ultimately kept it far from my little home. And even after I learned that it is actually a reproduction (Atlanta made in fact) of a regency design, I found an exact replica minus the mirror, but I still am having trouble wrapping my head around blowing hundreds of dollars on a mirror. But I can't get it out of my head! The thought of this beauty against a color background--teal, magenta, plum, you name it!
