DIY Mirrored Furniture

As many of you know, I am a fan of grays, whites, and metallics. I love mirrored furniture and my personal style for my home usually lives in the Hollywood Regency realm, just toned down a little for family living. Today, I’m going to show you an easy way to add a little glamour to a pedestal table.

I picked this table up at an antique mall for $8. It’s a piece of Lane furniture and I was told it’s from the 50’s, but I don’t know. I loved the design on the top and the gold accents on the legs. It just needed a little love and a little jewelry. It also is the perfect height for my fireside chairs. Hooray for fall nights of hot cocoa and scrabble challenges all by the warmth of the fire!

Supplies

1.  1-inch pack of glass tiles (I found them online from an Ebay vendor in a 100 pack. My table measured 71 inches around so I have some leftover.)

2.  Quick Drip Permanent Adhesive

3.  

Metallic Silver Acrylic Craft Paint (Sorry the label on this paint is about 10 years old! I purchased it at Michael’s.

4. Small art brush

This is such an easy and simple DIY. All I did was paint the side of the table top and the legs with my paint. I did 3 coats on the legs for a flawless finish. I love this paint! It goes on smooth and you don’t see any brush marks. I left the top as-is because it didn’t need anything, I liked it just fine.

As my paint was drying, I glued on my mirror tiles with Quick Drip Adhesive. Since these are small mirror pieces it worked great.( If you are going to add larger pieces of mirror to your furniture I would advise you to get Palmer’s Mirror Mate Adhesive.)

Voila! A glammed up pedestal table. Don’t you love it?? I know I do! Look how pretty my mercury glass looks on it!

      You betcha! Thanks so much for reading and liking it :) I just typed in glass mirror tiles on Ebay and found all different sizes and price points. Etsy also had a lot, just not in the size I needed. Have a great weekend! xxx Kristin

      Thanks, Sarah! Neutrals done right can be just as interesting as color everywhere. I do love some color too though. I am contemplating painting a wall in my living room before the holiday season starts. Have a great weekend!!! xxx Kristin

        Thats fun! I love a good accent wall. I painted a striped wall in shades of gray, white and light blue. It was a lot of work but I love how it turned out and it added a little color to my neutral color palette. Happy Saturday!

        yeah, that is kind of strange–someone wasn’t checking their measurements i guess 😉

        thanks for this! i’m trying to figure out which size rug is best for the living room–i think the 5 by 8 zebra one will be perfect :)

        xo,

    This is awesome! Such a small change makes such a big impact! Would you mind if I linked to this on my blog? My “Weekly Wishlist” for this week is mirrored furniture – this would be a great example of how to get the look without spending a huge chunk of change!
