Today I’m joining Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday. I’ve decided to feature the end table in our guest bedroom. I did this little transformation (with the help of my handy hubby) back before my blogging days, so I don’t have any in-progress photos, just before & afters.
This end table had been with us for a few years, it was a hand-me-down from my mom, I think it came from Bombay Co. Here it is in our old house, used as a TV stand:
It had been serving its purpose just fine as a nightstand in the guest bedroom, but once I redecorated the room, it definitely needed a facelift! I really wanted a piece of mirrored furniture for the room, but didn’t want to pay the high price. Then I remembered the previous owners had left a huge unframed mirror in the attic! I convinced hubby to drag it down and we cut a piece for the top, the sides and the front of the drawer. The rest I just spray painted silver! I also applied silver leaf to the shelf, but you really can’t tell. Oh, and I also made a little knob out of small round craft mirrors.
Total cost: Probably less than $10 for a can of silver spray paint, a tube of mirror mastic adhesive, and a pack of little round craft mirrors! Bonus: The guy at Lowe’s just GAVE me the glass cutter they had been using since they were out of stock of the ones that they sold! (Guess I was looking especially cute that day!)
