A Looking Glass Worth Taking a New Look At
Mirror, mirror on the wall…I don't like you very much at all. If you're putting up with the mirror you took from your parents' attic after college simply because you've got to look somewhere to make sure you don't have toothpaste on your face in the morning, it's time to trade it in. In fact, Capo says mirrors are some of the easiest home décor items to sell; far easier than other items you'd hang on a wall, such as paintings or clocks. You'll know if you've got a true antique by checking the glass; if it has random (not uniform) cloudy spots around the edges, chances are it's truly old and not a reproduction. And the back on an antique will be wood, not paper.
