This was a huge dark brown mirror I bought at a junkstore for $20 bucks...it was so big I couldn't imagine what it was used for, except maybe in a department store, and it was really beat up. We bondo-ed it and painted it white, and then mounted it over a fireplace. It looks so architechurally proportionate that people think it's always been there. My neighbors get mad because they think they were decieved by the builder! haha

Nice safe and brilliant use of someone else's cast off.
