SF Good Questions: Ideas for Painting My Huge Mirror?

Dear AT:SF, Yesterday I was headed out to the bus stop (running a teensy bit late) when what do I see leaning against a telephone just half a block from my apartment? A HUGE mirror! I've had an eye out for a large mirror for my living room, but man those things can be expensive...

...I hauled it home and then took off, even later than before, but feeling quite pleased with my discovery! The mirror is 48" tall, 55" with the frame. The frame itself is what I'm looking for some advice on. It's pretty cool looking carved wood, but I don't think I'm so hot on the gold thing. My instinct is to paint it black, but I feel like maybe I should get more creative. Any ideas for a fun color or treatment? Thanks!

Jessica,

There was a similar question recently -- check out SF Good Questions: What Can I Do With This Old Gilded Mirror? for some ideas.

Other suggestions, anyone?
