I was stunned when I found this large mirror resting against the side of a garage in a modest city neighborhood. As yard sale junkies know, you can't judge what you might find by the size or condition of the house. This item was tucked between the garage and a tall fence where it looked SO out of place and yet so regal. The price tag of $150 was a little steep for me at the time but I knew it was worth that and more. It was a must have!
Once in place, it definately took command of the room which is what I had hoped for. Originally there had been a fireplace in this location but that too was removed by a previous owner. Although I had restored two of the missing fireplaces on this floor, I felt this room would benefit from something different.
