For some reason I can't bear 'new' mirrors. They often look cheap to me, even though they rarely are! All the mirrors in our house have been bought either from markets, car boots or ebay, for a fraction of the price of what is on the high street, and to me they all have character and charm that new mirrors just don't have....
And we don't have to be scared by a little wear and tear to the mirror surface and/or frame, again, it adds charm.
Why not go all out and make a mirror a work of art in its own right, like these by Huw Griffith....
oh and then there are outdoor mirrors! I reckon one of Huw's would look fab in the garden, although I imagine they would need a bit of shelter from the elements, or just bring it out when the sun is shining!
