I love this mirror! So pretty and looks great on my big wall in my living room. It didn't take my husband that long to hang either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IDAHOBALLARDFANS Beautiful, stunning entry way piece.
I was looking for a dominate piece for our entry way which is quite large. We are especially pleased with the weight of the mirrors, a little challenging to hang, but it adds to the overall stunning look we had in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SmashGal Beautiful but Heavy
I love the look of this mirror. I do not have it hanging yet because it will take a brace between studs in the wall to hold it. It is very heavy. I hope we will be able to get it hung securely and without worrying it will fall! Beautifully made. Only downfall is weight of item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marla2 well packaged and quality product
place all three on the floor as you would wish to
hang them (however, place them on their
using a roll of brown wrapping paper, create
a template of the back of the mirrors (all three together)
with the mounting points marked on the paper,
caution:remember that the mirrors will shift down when placed on the hangers so be particularly careful when
marking the mounting points for the top mirror-
place the template on the wall and position as desired and
transfer marked mounting points to the wall, remove paper and install mirrors starting with the two on the bottom-
install top mirror last, if the mounting points are correct
this mirror should abut the two bottom mirrors-

by Luv2playpickleball Unique and very well crafted
We purchased just the top arch. We just love it. It is very well made. We hung it over our Amish High Boy in the dining room. It really makes a statement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woodley Stunning
I purchased the 3 piece grand palais mirror for my dinning room. I read and followed the advice from previous purchasers, that is, to measure carefully before setting the hanging screws. Hanging the mirrors took a while, but the results were worth it. The mirrors are stunning over my sideboard. It reflects the changelier and expands the room. I had always been unhappy with the painting in that location - the mirror is exacty what was needed.

This is my second set of these mirrors (first has black frames and second antique silver). The antique silver has more of a goldfish tint than I was expecting but I hung them anyway and they look fabulous over my night stands to reflect the light from the lamps and give the illusion of windows. I love them.

This is a beautiful mirror, and perfect for the space I had in mind--very glad I ordered. It is not too heavy for me to lift (I'm a woman)--probably around 40 pounds. My only quibble is how it is set up for hanging. The two places it is designed to hang from are at the very top of the mirror, so that any hook you use will show above the mirror. This is true of the power hooks as well (which fortunately I did not order). I'm thinking that to hang on drywall, what will work best is two screws with 3/8" heads, which should be able to handle the weight. The hanging places (I wish I knew the right vocabulary for this) are shaped so that you can put the larger part of the opening over the screw head and then allow the mirror to settle down over the screw shank, so that the head behind will prevent the mirror from slipping off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aw0008 I love these mirrors, and have wanted to purchase them for some time.
These mirrors are large and grand. They make a statement in the room. Although the ones I ordered were suppose to be silver in finish, they arrived gold in finish. Because I already have two different style mirrors that were also gold in finish, these mirrors fit right in with them more so than a silver finish would have. They are very heavy, so the power hooks are a must have to install them properly. My husband and I installed them, after placement and measuring all three along our wall. They look awesome and grand in front of our dining room table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CajunMa elegant addition to a tall wall
The three pieces arrived in perfect condition. My Great Room has a north-facing wall of windows, but all that light stayed on that side of the room. This mirror, placed on the opposite wall, brought light and garden views across the space and brightened and enlarged the look of the room.
It took two men and a woman (for measuring) to hang the three pieces, but we got it perfect. Glad I purchased this lovely piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DHRM Did not work for me
I initially bought one rectangle and the arch mirror. I wanted to hang the rectangle horizontally with the arch above it. The product description said that you could choose the shape you wanted. This did not turn out to be true. The hangers only allow you to hang the rectangles vertically. I ordered a second rectangle thinking that was the only alternative, but the whole thing was too big. We are not using the mirrors at all. They just don't work for the spot we have. There is really nothing wrong with the mirrors. It is that you can't really choose your shape that is our problem.

This is a beautiful mirror and decorative piece. The only thing I don't like about ordering from Ballard (although I have ordered many items) is the fact that hardware is never included. also, the measurements on the back for hanging are never even. other than that, love the products.

by VSHouse It's gorgeous! Adds so much to my entryway.
This mirror came packaged very well. No sign of damage at all. It's made just as well. Heavy duty for sure. I feel it's a little difficult to hang so I hired someone to hang it but otherwise I'm so glad I made this purchase.

We have been wanting to purchase two of these for over 2 years, and we finally did. They came well packaged and appear to be in good condition. We opened two of the six boxes and were elated with the aesthetic quality of the two pieces. Can't wait to open the other four, and to hire someone to hang all six pieces on a high wall in our den

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlaGma Looks great! With careful measuring it went up nicely.
After reading other reviews we made a template of the mirror and marked placement of it just as we wanted it on the wall. We worked back to the exact place for the screws. Put the lower parts of the mirror up first then could set the top piece in place without disturbing the lower straight and level pieces. We used screws rather than the hooks purchased from Ballard as we felt we could place the screws more precisely. All went well and the mirror looks wonderful in our stairwell.

I am very pleased with the way the mirror looks and the light it adds to my living room. My son-in-law and his friend used the power hooks to hang it, measured carefully and it looks perfect. They were impressed with the Power Hooks.

I purchased one rectangular panel to hang on a narrow wall in need of a tall mirror. It was difficult to find a tall, narrow and substantial bronze finished mirror. This mirror is made well, substantial, and fits perfectly. I wish I had a place to put the full mirror! I’m sure it looks fantastic with all three pieces. The mirror arrived in perfect condition and fairly quickly. I am pleased with my purchase, especially for the sale price and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestendaBrenda Great for high ceiling hall or room
I bougth the 3-piece and hung it in my narrow entry hall so it refelcts the LR and DR and the effect is to make the hall appear wider, take advantage of my 10 foot ceiling, and balance the LR arched double window.
The back of each piece hangs via 2 keyholes soldered onto the frame. Hardware store personnel advised me on the type of screws and anchors to use in my drywall, since not all keyholes would line up with a stud. It was easy to hang myself, even standing on a 3-step ladder. Each piece weighs about 16 lbs, and is bulky rather than heavy. I am right-handed, so I started with the lower left piece, then right, then arch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JeneeBB Even better in person
I hesitated to purchase since it says it can only be hung vertically. I have a friend who welds and was able to fashion another hanger (like the one it comes with) and it worked perfectly! I also purchased the hangers recommended by Ballard and am confident they will hold this heavy piece. I will say BD should really consider adding one more hanger so that it is able to be hung horizontally. It only took my friend about 15 minutes and a small piece of metal. Either way, now that it is up, it is EXACTLY what I was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jodster523 Grand Indeed
The mirror surpassed my expectations. When entering our somewhat small living room it adds height, light, drama,
and gives the illusion that the room is much larger. My husband hung it last night, took about 2 hours because it is so heavy and exact measuring was a must. I love it. Not one regret here.

I received this mirror as a Christmas present this year and could not have happier. This large statement mirror opens up the room and gave me just the right thing for the large void over my fireplace. Just love this piece! Takes 2 to hang it however, but if you take your time the outcome is well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovingRetirement Impressive!
We ordered this product mid afternoon on a Tuesday. On Thursday it arrived. Talk about fast delivery, although we were told it could take much longer. We ordered the two rectangles. We read all the reviews and did purchase the hooks, but for our purposes they weren't applicable so we will be returning them. We have a modern, loft style unit with double 5/8" drywall so we had one of the maintenance team install them and he was able to do it by himself. He knew what he was doing and it was impressive to watch as it would have been a lot more harrowing had we taken this on ourselves. Everything lined up perfectly and the final product is wonderful looking. Ours are the darker edging, which appears to look more like black trim, as I was hoping for. This product is more than worth the asking price.

Large Heavy mirrors come in three heavy boxes. You might need help moving them and hire someone to install, but they really make a room look stunning! I put them in a "hallway" where there was a really ugly blank wall and it made the room pop! Adds light, volume, and a dramatic statement to any room! I would recommend them if you are willing to do the work or hire someone to install three heavy panels.
