For those of you who like to hear the stories behind the scene and wonder what "disaster" means in the subject, and can "keep this a secret", here is the tea: when I received my batch of vanity shipment from China, after 2 years of back and forth with manufacturers, I discovered the mirror was looking odd. After a few seconds, I realized what had happened.
My parents, who have been amazing supporters of my crazy furniture ventures, somehow thought acrylic mirrors were a good idea since it is practically unbreakable. My lack of knowledge of the fact that although acrylic mirrors are hard to break, it is extremely pro to warping.
That's why when my parents said the shipment looks okay, I trusted them without a second thought.
This turns out to be a very expensive lesson and mistake.
All of the acrylic mirrors were warped when arrived. My beauty vanity became a fun house. I can't sell them like this! After I went through the initial shock and frustration, I hired a local glass and mirror shop to replace them with real mirrors. The stress of this event probably triggered another bout of painful post covid illnesses, but I am just glad that they have been fixed, albeit at a cost that could have been avoided.
Lesson learned - always research materials, triple and quadruple check. Ask obvious and repetitive questions. Never assume other people will take care of anything, not even family.
