There are multiple ways to use this mirror whether it be hanging on the wall vertically or horizontally or using the metal stand. It feels steady when leaning against the wall. It is has a thick boarder around the mirror part.
The mirror is significant and sits solidly on its own, with beautiful dark mahogany wood and no scratches or cracks. It is worth the low price that i paid for it and appears very sturdy. Very pleased with this purchase.
The option of stand is very nice. I wish it was a tad taller as i am 5ft 6 and i have to crouch down to see my face.
The stand only has one hinge and it is super wobbly, even on a hard surface floor. The screws do not tighten to a stoping point, they spin in place when they’re flush with the frame.
