This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Michelle kindly informed me that the glass on the MONGSTAD mirror was horribly off. I've remeshed both of the mirrors, since I wasn't entirely happy with the HEMNES either. Please download the new files and let them overwrite the old.

Apparently bathrooms and IKEA mirrors are my thing lately. I was staring at one of my lots and realized that apart from proper two-tile mirrors, the game also lacks a variation of counterheight mirrors (that don't clip the sink or counter). So I went back to my good old IKEA friends. I resized the mesh, made sure the shadows and reflections matched up and texture-linked these to the original IKEA mirrors. These do not replace the original Maxis mirrors, they have a custom GUID, because the more the better!
