The Devil really is in the details.

We are nearing the final stages of completion of the upstairs bathroom and I am so anxious to share! The only problem: a mirror.
Uniform Bevel Oval Mirror

Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine that finding a mirror of relatively specific proportions would be such a feat. I want an oval, frameless mirror, with a beveled edge. At this point, I am not even super concerned with the price. It can be no taller than 17", and I'm hoping that it would not be much shorter, since this pint-sized space would really benefit from the largest possible mirror. I might as well go ahead and admit that I am teetering dangerously close to settling for a round mirror, although I haven't even seen a round mirror that meets the qualifications.

I just send a pleading email to a random company I found that custom-cuts and bevels mirrors. Do you think they will write me back? I tried to find a nice, non-threatening way to stress that I really, really hope they will write me back as soon as possible. I signed off, "Talk to you tomorrow, pal!"

No, I didn't. But I wanted to.

Cross your fingers for me....


  1. You know what? Larry's probably got one out in the barn.... ;) We need to get there ASAP.

  2. that doesn't seem like too much to ask! can't wait to see the finished pictures!!

  3. My initial thought was "how hard can it be to find a mirror?"

    And then I went looking on The InterWeb.

    Now that I've finished crying and tearing my hair out, I feel your pain, lady.

    Seriously, we can put a man on the moon but we can't create a mirror of fairly common design in a smaller form? It's not like you're asking that it be festooned with unicorn horn and manticore barb! It's a beveled mirror, for Pete's sake!

    I'll keep my eyes peeled. Sometimes the local antique shoppe here in Tipp has magical deals I see nowhere else.

    Good luck with the e-mail query!
