Add sparkle to a plain looking second-hand table by painting and adding a mirror top.
This is the table after I put on the primer. I forgot to take a “before” picture.
How to tips: This table had three small pieces of wood attached to the top; these pieces kept items from falling off the back and sides of the table. Anyway, I took those pieces off; they were attached with screws. I sanded the table and then I painted on some primer. Later, I painted the table with silver spray paint.
I used tile grout and small (1 inch x 1 inch) mirror tiles to cover the top. If you want to be more eco-friendly, you can repurpose a salvaged mirror instead. I was going to use a solid mirror but we decided on the tiles because my daughter has a mirror ball in her room and this table top looks great in there.
This is a great idea for any preteen that likes sparkle.
I didn’t make this picture frame but I’ll show you how to make your own fabric covered frame in another post.
