I found this mirror gate a while back and knew I had to have it. It’s not old, but was made as a cool mirror. I’d seen some small antique gates before that I knew would be great as decorative architectural features on the wall, but the one I found was perfect because it came with hanging brackets and a mirror. The mirror, of course, helps provide visual depth in my narrow entryway.
I accepted the fact that I’d be putting more anchor screws in the wall and that someday when I sell the place there will be a good deal of hole-filling between these anchor holes and the ones for the stained-glass window and the holes from hanging all the other pictures in the house. Or someone could set up a Lite Brite. Anyway, I put this puppy up in my entryway. I like it.
