Mirrored Dresser Island

Materials: 6-Drawer Malm Dressers (x2)

I wanted to hack a large glamorous mirrored dresser island so I constructed 2 Malm dressers and placed them back to back.

Then I went to Lowes and had plywood cut to form a frame on the tops and sides of the two dressers.

Found awesome giant tempered glass mirrors on Craiglist. Attempted and failed to cut giant mirror to size by myself. Hired dude to come to my house and cut it because it was too big to fit in my car.

Placed large mirror on top so that it fit just inside the corner trim frame. Applied second trim (decorative and for the purpose of holding the mirror in place).
