vintage mirrored luxe for lack coffee table
aprica had enough of eyeballing way-too-expensive vintage mirrored tables and took things into her own hands.
“after coveting numerous vintage mirrored tables ranging from $450 to $2500 on eBay and at other online sites, i decided to make my own using a 35″ long ikea lack coffee table. while the cost for materials came out close to $200, i am really pleased with the results of my ‘luxe’ (it’s all relative) lack hack.
originally i wanted to replace the included shelf with a glass shelf but in the end liked the simplicity of the parsons style coffee table.
i had the mirrors cut (with sanded edges) at a local shop and adhered them with liquid nails made specifically for mirrors.”
