Take a thrift store side table from something ho hum to something fabulous.
Start with a table
We found this table at a yard sale.
It’s okay. It’s fine. It’s ordinary.
But why settle?
It needed a new purpose in life and I needed a dressing table.
We wanted to remove the shelf which was in the center of the bottom of the table to make knee room for the dressing table.
We simply pried off the shelf with a hammer.
Then we added a 1” x 6” piece of wood to the front to create a clean line on the front of the table. You could easily leave the curved lines if it fit your décor better.
Reposition the shelf onto the table to make knee room at the dressing table.
Simply nail shelf in place.
We also added a 1” x 4” to the front of the shelf to match the top piece.
Using wood filler, we filled in nail holes on the side of the table.
We let wood filler dry.
Next, we sanded lightly.
Now the table was ready to paint.
To protect the surrounding from over spray, we placed the table inside the HomeRight Spray Shelter.
The Spray Shelter is such a great option for painting, especially on a windy day when paint could get on the grass and trees.
We placed a drop cloth on the ground and the table inside of the Spray Shelter.
The HomeRight Finish Max is my go-to paint sprayer.
It is the easiest paint sprayer you will ever use.
All you need to do is fill up the canister that’s attached to the sprayer, then re-attach it and plug the sprayer in.
Here’s the finished table after several coats of paint.
Be sure and let it dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step.
Attach blocks of wood
On the reverse side of the table where the mirror will be installed attach 2 1” x 4” x 5” blocks of wood to the back.
Nail in place approximately 18” apart.
Next, nail each of the 1” x 2” x 24’ pieces of pine to each of the blocks of wood.
Attach adhesive strips
Attach the adhesive strips to the pieces of wood.
This is how the mirror will attach to the wood.
Using adhesive strips, press mirror in place.
Add bench to table.
Making a DIY Mirrored Dressing Table is an easy project that takes a weekend to complete.
And now the table isn’t ordinary any more.
