Nothing a lil' shoe polish can't fix...

You can't tell too much difference in the pictures, but it made a world of difference...really went well with the black mantle, which I will post the before and after pics in a later blog for you! Oh, and did I mention I only paid $40 for the mirror? Yes! That is it, and I love it!
