There are several advantages to this option. First, the mirror in the folded position will not get dusty and dirty. Secondly, the table can be used as a working surface, for example, as a desk or a stand for a laptop.
  5. Table with or without a separate mirror. It looks like an ordinary small table or a bedside table, above which a mirror is fixed on the wall (it can be placed on the tabletop, but this arrangement can be unreliable and inconvenient).
  6. A table with a swivel mirror - a model that has a double-sided mirror panel fixed on the tabletop on two supports and freely rotating.This is very convenient, because changing the angle of inclination, it is possible both with the comfort to apply cosmetics, and evaluate the outfits in full growth and even their individual parts.
