SF Good Questions: What Can I Do With This Old Gilded Mirror?

Hi everyone, While leaving my yoga class in Northpoint on Saturday morning, I came across a woman on Larkin with an open garage and a lot of funky items for sale. The mirror attached just called out to me as a must-have but I'm not quite sure what to do with it. It was a total steal for only $5! It measures 30in wide x 40 in tall and weighs enough for 2 people to carry. The frame is very much intact but appears to have been painted in a thick gold/bronze paint. It has chipped in some places and reveals a reddish colour underneath...

...My condo is quite modern and minimal but I was wondering if it'd be a good idea to strip the frame and paint it a nice glossy white. It'd make a stunning addition to my bedroom. Any ideas on what I could do with this old gilded mirror?

P.S. Photos are of the full mirror and top and bottom frame details.
