I recently made myself an Infinity Mirror Coffee Table using an IKEA LACK coffee table. It turned out pretty cool!
I made a video tutorial of how I made it. Take a look.
Tutorial for Infinity Mirror Coffee Table hack
- LACK coffee table
- Glass – 73cm x 43cm x 4mm (thick)
- Mirror – same size as above
- Solar film
- Wood – 36 mm x 25 mm
- LED strip
- Masking tape
- Paint (black)
Measure where the mirror should go on the table top. Use masking tape to mark out where you need to cut.
Using a drill with a 22mm bit make a hole at each corner. This is to let you slide the blade of your jigsaw through and cut off the top of the LACK coffee table.
Then, remove the cut piece and the honeycomb structure beneath.
Smoothen the cut edges with sandpaper.
Next is to measure the size of the cut out. You’ll need to make a wood frame to fit this cut out. At a corner of the wood frame, drill a hole for the LED strip to go through. Make a corresponding one at the bottom of the coffee table.

To enhance the infinity effect, paint the frame black. Set aside and let it dry thoroughly.
Next, prepare the glass by cleaning it and applying the solar film.
When the paint has dried, stick the LED strip to the wood frame, starting with the hole you made earlier.
Lastly is to assemble the infinity mirror coffee table. Put the mirror in place at the base of the cut out area.
Then insert the frame. Attach the LED strip to its connections. Then add the tinted glass on top with the solar film facing down.
Fasten the rest of the electronics under the table.
Connect to power and you’re done.
