DIY: Mirrored Bedside Tables


This week was a productive week for me. I finally got to work on a DIY project for my bedroom that had been in the back of mind for a while. I wanted to change my bedside tables for ages from the cheap chip board ones we bought when we first moved in, to something a bit more sophisticated.

Being that my budget is somewhat limited, I had to get a bit creative. So I rummaged around in the garage and found some left over cream gloss paint I thought would do the job nicely. First though I had to paint on a base coat. Now you all know how I feel about painting, but I hoped the end result would be worth it. Also it took AGES to dry! Ugh. Anyway, after the base coat I painted on the gloss. Then I roped in my dad to change the cheap silver bar handles to nice glass knobs. And finally, I purchased specially measured mirrors for the tops. Et voila!!

I’m pretty happy with the results!

And here is what they look like after!

Also this week, I made a little quote picture inspired by my trip to Disney World! I bought a cheap picture with this white frame, removed the picture inside, then painted up my Disney slogan.

 I added it to my picture wall montage, along with the other new pictures frames I bought recently. I love this effect, I may even consider buying more to add to the wall…

Next up I’m planning on sanding and painting the skirting boards and doors… A big job!
