    I agree with Scaloot – GFTs are never a problem, *especially* if said GFT is a mirror! I love all of your mirrors and I think you should never get rid of any of them, *unless* you wish to gift them to me for safe keeping, of course! Love your posts – always!!!

    Hi, I’m a mom of 8 kids that is (and has) always been involved in some project in every house we have lived in. I happen to find your site while looking up antique kitchen islands, mine is an old store desk destined to be married to a chunk of carrera. I have spent 2 days laughing out loud and absolutely relating to your love of mirrors and Craigslist. I am lining up your posts for my husband to read so he can witness other husbands actively participating in their important roles in the ongoing designs ( and redesigns) of their beloveds….thanks for the laughs and great ideas!

    I want this mirror:

    It is gorgeous. so enormous, I have nowhere to put it, no way to go and get it and cant afford it. Therefore, it fills all my waking hours. Honey, I could build a nice set of built ins in the dining room, and use these as doors. No, not so much. My dining room built in plans have doors of made from a carved asian room divider which is as likely to happen as convincing my husband to get an antique chinese wedding bed, and shellac it for use in the yard as a cabana. Visiting my parents in FL has not yielded the treasure trove of cheap antiques that I was counting on.

      please note that each individual panel is too tall and wide to replace an interior door. because, yes, I thought of doing that too.

    Check out the mirror in this post. Maybe Anne Hathaway doesn’t need that huge mirror.
