Rated 3 out of 5 by ACBJR wish wood was more authentic looking
I bought this product knowing that it was made from compressed wood, and would not have actual wood framing. I think they are trying to make the frames look aged by having deep grooves/depressions in them. Looks kind of hokie. The overall concept is nice, if you don't look to closely at the frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjp10 A great feature on a wall between windows.
I purchased two sets and they look great in our rec room. They've added interest to a large wall and I've received lots of compliments. I highly recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smilz32003 Get compliments ALL the time for these!
The packaging was great when they arrived. As with anything that you are hanging multiples of, measuring beforehand is key. I measured the back of the mirrors where the hardware was and one mirror had the hardware just slightly (1/2 inch) different, so I adjusted where I placed the nail on the wall. No big deal. We had our house warming party, and aside from compliments on our floorplan, the mirrors stole the show! Also, something a guest told me. You can tell a good quality mirror by two things. One, if the edges are beveled (which these are) and if you place your finger on the mirror and there is a little space between your finger and the "reflection" part (which these also have.) We have 4 mirrors in the white, which is sort of an offwhite/cream and was PERFECT! I have a few people that asked where I got them and plan to order them now too:) I will try to remember to upload a picture soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMPR Looks great!
We bought four of these mirrors for our dining room and just love them. They add a texture and movement of light that did not exist before.
We had no issues with the product at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by needwallart Perfect above our couch!
Absolutely love how they look above our couch. The antique gray color has a nice distressed look and goes perfectly with our dark leather sectional. I only bought 2 sets and had to order an additional set to balance the look. I do wish they were sold individually, becuase I will probably end up using only 5 of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jls1 Wonderful quality and just lovely but sending back
These mirrors are lovely. They are not too heavy so can hang easily. Unfortunately I am sending them back however, because they are more rustic than I realized and just don't go with my decor. But if I had a country or rustic theme, these would be a favorite piece. I tried them over a white kitchen cabinet with marble top. The frame is a bit off-white by the way and just appeared very heavy and clunky when paired with my cabinet.

These mirrors are beautiful. We painted white (color is weathered white) to match the molding and hung as faux transom windows. Everyone stops in awe of how beautiful they are. Wish I could have bought only three but I'll find another place for the extra!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kim766 Love them
I initially ordered two of these mirrors to go side by side on a hallway wall. My husband took one look and decided he wanted one of them over a large door opening. So now it looks like I have a beautiful window instead of a mirror. Lots of compliments as it does look like a window. Fantastic decorative mirrors. Not really concerned with what they are made of as I'm happy with how they look.

I have been eyeing these mirrors on this site for years. I finally decided to re-decorate my dining room and these mirrors have been my inspiration for the design. I ordered these over the holidays and was pleasantly surprised with the fast shipping. The mirrors were packaged with great care and were more beautiful than I expected. They have literally transformed my dining room and have added so much light and even the appearance of taller ceilings. I just love them!

I wanted something different than another painting over my sofa. I saw these in your catalog and thought they would be perfect. Not only are they perfect, but they reflect light back into the room and it really lightens up the whole area. We love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CountryLook Great look to transform your room!
I purchased 4 of these Garden District Mirrors. They simply transform a ho-hum room into a WOW. I do agree with other reviews that they were difficult to hang because of the hook placements on the back. Some were higher than others, some lower, some irregular on the same mirror.
Still, a fabulous look for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CTHome200 Beware, dimensions differ on each mirror
I found the Garden District Mirrors were impossible to hang next to each other - the sides are not completely straight, the hooks are not in the same place on each mirror, and the dimensions vary slightly on each mirror. We are returning this product because we found they looked completely uneven when hung side-by-side. A disappointment because I've been pleased with all of my previous Ballard products.

I was a little nervous about ordering these because of the few reviewers who cited things like peeling paint, cheaper looking non wood frames, inconsistencies in the size of the mirrors making them difficult to hang as a group and so on. However, I took note of the fact that the overwhelming majority would recommend them, so I went ahead and ordered them. I really love these. They are made of a foam product, but are fairly substantial and don't look cheap at all. They look like painted wood with a wrought iron frame detail, and are just beautiful. All four of mine hang as a group side by side above my couch in my family room and the sizes are consistent. They have hanging hardware loops on the back, so I purchased metal picture frame wire and hardware that could hold at least 30lbs. Anyway, they really are quite nice and I love them. I have to say I bought them with a 20% promotion discount as I thought the shipping was a bit expensive, so that was an incentive to purchase them as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BingeShopper Beautiful addition to my dining room
I love these mirrors and while they were a "Bring Home Ballard" item the price was very reasonable. I have 2 negatives to share- 1) the finish easily chips off. I bought the wood tone and on each of the mirrors (I bought 4) there is a slight chip where white is now peeking through. 2)We hung the mirrors vertical and the 2 hooks were not level so although our hooks in the wall were level when we hung the mirrors they were not. We had to make an additional hole in the wall to even it out. Minor issues but still issues.

by Livetodesign This product made us love our Bedroom
I ordered a set of these window-like mirrors because I was trying to make our very blah, vanilla room have some personality. The room gets absolutely beautiful natural light in the afternoon, but I didn't want a huge mirror to reflect it and "blind" people. The mirrors arrived and they are not wood, but a strange composite. The staining isn't perfect by any means, but that doesn't matter. Once they are up... they are beautiful! They are heavy but able to be hung up with normal picture hangers (2 on each mirror). So to fix my decorating dilemma, hubby and I hung two mirrors on either side of our bed...they were were perfect! They brought in light, but gave depth to the room instantly! They add such a unique flair to the bedroom. Even my husband (who is quite picky and British) said, "I love these mirrors. They make me feel like our bedroom is in a castle in Scotland." And I even got a thumbs up for spending money...how often does that happen? Bottom line? Get the mirrors, have sturdy picture hangers handy measure super carefully (holes were not in the same place), and revel in what awesome taste you have.
PS I am looking for ideas on what kind of a bed/headboard would work now that the mirrors are up. I am attempting to attach photos if you have any suggestions.

I am very glad I purchased these. They are stunning and open up the room! Of the four I purchased, one was bowed to the left (hence the 4 stars instead of 5). Not a deal breaker, but it was noticeable. I called and Ballard customer service credited me a portion of the cost, as I did not want to take the mirrors down after spending the time to hang them. They were not difficult to hang, just required some finesse to line them up. They are worth the effort! You will not regret your purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dmac great value, big impact
For the money, this is a great buy. They are nice mirrors, they don't look of the highest quality because they are not wood. But for what I needed, people couldn't see them up close so they are good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marvee The GDM was as I expected. As with all my purchases from BD, the quality was excellent and my client loves it.
I wish you would sell these mirrors separately and not in pairs. I used one vertically over the French doors in my clients home. The other one over a French painted console. Looks fantastic. Thanks Marvee

Have wanted these for a while - glad I waited because I got the new wood tone and they are perfect! I have them hung on either side of my front door and the bevel bounces light in the evening and makes lovely rainbows for the grandkids to chase in the sunlight. Love how the size allows a great variety of configurations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by heylady85 looks very nice on wall
We purchased 2 sets and we used 3 over the daybed. Yes, they are not real wood, but who cares when they are on the wall.... looks like real wood. We bought the white ones and they do look like a window . I read all the reviews before purchasing and what we did was unscrewed the hangers and measured where we wanted them to go and measured on the wall and hung them about 2 1/2 inches apart. They look really nice up and got them level the first try. They could be tricky if you dont measure and plan ahead how and where to hang them. I am very happy with this purchase.
