I have an old wall closet wich has dark brown wooden doors with a little frame for decoration.
Something like this.

I would like to achieve this kind of doors: gloss/mirror doors

With gloss or dark mirror.
The think is that I can remove the frame I told you above, so that the wooden surface would be even.
So I thought that I could buy a dark mirror and somehow glue the mirror to the door.

What do you think? Also, I would like a solution for the handles of the door.

Thank you for your time!

You need somewhat thick glass for a clean flat undistorted appearance, which is quite heavy in large sizes. You very likely will need upgraded hinge hardware to handle the extra weight. – bcworkz Sep 1 '13 at 19:12
You also need a fairly sturdy doorframe to support a large expanse of glass – bib Sep 1 '13 at 20:40
