Bathroom Mirror - Rectangle, Beveled - Charlotte Collection by Gatco
Mirror went up with ease and looks great exactly what I wanted. I did do a complete renovation in this room and had read prior reviews. So before I installed my drywall I added a 2x6 for extra support, since a few of reviews in several sites said the mirror was heavy. Since I have kids I was afraid that they might hang on it ( kids do crazy things) and decided to be overly cautious.

Help too late
My husband and I tried to install the mirrors failing to secure them to the hardware 8-10 times. I said,"W'e'll send them back" when he came up with the idea to make cardboard shims to compensate for the angle of the bezel which was preventing the hardware from tightening and laying flat on the wall. Got one up before the Christmas party 12/4, 20 minutes before the first guests arrived. We have not had the "uumph" to try to install the other, today being 12/19. These mirrors were less expensive but had the "look" I wanted which that they do. Yesterday, we received an envelope from the manufacturer titled," Installation supplement" with 6 sticky backed little pieces of felt to be used to fill the space where the bevel prevents the hardware from straightening and tightening. It is unbelievable that this most important information did not accompany the mirrors originally. I guess you get what you pay for. I'm afraid to clean the one that's up given our struggle and "fix".
