I thought I would be so smart and router the boards so that the mirror is encased in the frame. I placed the mirror into the wood and glued the frame together, It actually looked really nice. Until I tried to push the mirror to the front of the frame and busted a corner of the mirror on the bottom. At this point I had no way of getting the mirror out of the frame, if I would try to remove the mirror I would also have to wreck the frame to replace it with a new mirror. So on to plan B, my husband's suggestion of putting a shelf on the bottom to cover up the broken mirror. It actually does look good having the tin on the top and bottom.
