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.
Here are three mirrors each in a different style. All are found in the Buy/Decor/Mirror section.

The Moroccan Mirror:

2 recolorable channels (frame and inner edge), single tile mirror
Cost is $172
Environment score 2


The Large Square Mirror:
1 recolorable channel, three tile mirror
Cost is $200
Environment score 5


The Elise Mirror:
1 recolorable channel (mirror edge), single tile mirror
Cost is $450
Environment score 4
This mirror's classic/shabby chic style is based on a Pottery Barn mirror


Credit to the following for patterns used in my pictures:
Guatla - Grunge plaster on large mirror, distressed wood on sink cabinet
Jane Samborski - Subway tile on bathroom floor

These patterns can all be found in the Pattern section here at MTS.

Thanks to everyone who has helped me with questions in the meshing section.

Special thanks to Cmomoney for his tutorials and teaching

Polygon Counts:
Moroccan Mirror: Faces 224 Vertices 256
Large Square Mirror: Faces 117 Vertices 215
Elise Mirror: Faces 332 Vertices 250

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Very nice! I love the texture you used on the sq mirror. I've colored frames but never thought of using textures and I really like the look. Thanks for the idea, and thanks for the share

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. It's great to hear that people are enjoying the mirrors Juli & June, it's wonderful to see you...hugs for you!

Pandamychem, the plaster texture on the large square mirror is by Guatla and is available here at MTS in the Patterns section. Here is the link:

The one I used is the one Guatla has labeled number 3 in her pictures.

The table in the pictures with the large square & Moroccan mirrors is an object I'm working on to upload here soon. The table in the other picture is from EA.

Where is the rectangle clear vase with pink tulips from? I like it and I'm pretty sure I don't have it.
