Weekly Pinterest Favs {Easy DIY projects}

Mirrored furniture is extremely popular right now. I have had my eye on this peice to complete our living room & provide some much needed storage. Honestly though either I’m becoming a major bargain shopper or I am just getting used to Craigslist & TJ Maxx prices, because for some reason I just can’t pull the trigger. It’s also $800 for a decorative piece. Little ridiculous. Plus Babe has been dying for a new bed and would be a little annoyed if I bought that over a new bed first! OK anyways, I found this awesome and easy peasy DIY on Pinterest:

{How to make mirrored furniture}

Step 1 – Buy a thrift store dresser, desk, buffet with drawers

Step 2 – paint it in whatever color you like

Step 3 – Measure the drawer panels where the mirrors will go & have a hardware store cut the mirrors to size – Pay extra to have polished edges

Step 4 – Drill holes for the hardware & apply the mirrors to the drawers with mirror glue or liquid nails.

Step 5 – Tape mirrors on furniture to ensure they stay in place while drying. Let dry overnight & you’re done!

Now you have a chic and glamorous new piece of furniture
