picture framing a lcd tv?

I want to add a picture frame around my 60" flatscreen tv once it's hung on the wall. Has anyone done this and have a good way to attach it to the wall? I'd like it to be able to be removed easily if I need to add or get to the wires in back of the tv.

Are you planning on putting a two way mirror on top of it or just framing in the LCD? I had a 36" LCD hanging up in my bar that I recessed into the wall and hung a mirror over so that when the TV was off, it was a mirror but when it wasn't it shined right through the glass... it was sahweeeeeet.

If you're hanging it on the wall and then building a frame that protrudes so that you don't see the sides, you'll have to build it like reverse crown like so:


As for attaching it, I'd use velcro or something on the top edge so that it's easily removed and non marring.

Do you have any issues with heat, enclosing in the TV like that? I've built frames like this before but not aroun a flat screen so snug.

I do like the look and the simplisity of using crown for the frame.
