Stay or go, what do you think?

That’s the best I could come up with in Photoshop

They are the last thing to go on, or I could leave them off.

I’m in two minds.

Are they ok or a bit crappy?

They need to be shallow at the top to meet the frieze rail.

That dictates the style.

I welcome any comments, be honest.

Thanks James I value your opinion – and whitebeast and Dan, everytime I see them on the bench I think ‘they look really good’ then about 5 minutes later I think ‘I don’t really like them’.

I would not use them here because there’s nothing
sticking out for them to appear to support.

Aesthetically, they should go. Trust your 5 minute second thoughts.
But for the average customer (and I really don’t know how to read yours) stay, because they usually love flash. (Mount them with double faced tape?)
What definitely should go are the Photoshop stickers on the mirror. Too tacky.
The project’s looking great, love the crown and the rich colour.

Bling is highly over rated

KISS always rules

The simple bead mouldings, the crown, is enough

I like it without, I think it looks a little cleaner.

I’m a big fan of simple as well.

That being said, I don’t think you can actually go wrong either way – they do add a nice touch.
