snapped this pic for you.
this mirror was from the 1920's and the frame was in rough shape when we found it at an antique store. the detail at the top was broken (and in a bag) and the frame was cracked and split open at the bottom.
we used 2-part epoxy to glue the detail parts together. also used this glue to hold the frame together, then while it was drying, i took 6" of metal braided strapping (common item at home depot) and nailed it along the bottom edge on each side thus holding the frame together with much strength.
then primed & spray painted black to give it some PUNCH!
