Transform an ordinary, unfinished wood table into a glamorous home accent with the help of mirrors.

    Everything in this slideshow

    • From Plain to Prominent

      This dressy console table features graceful curves and elegant beveled edges but lacks the unique look it deserves.

    • Clair de (Demi)Lune

      This once ordinary table was transformed into a showstopping mirrored diva in just a few steps. Sand and prime the table, then brush the legs and the beveled edges of the tabletop with silver leaf and seal them with polyurethane. Trace a kraft paper pattern of the curvy tabletop, then have 1/4-inch mirror cut to fit and seamed to ensure a smooth edge. Have the side panels cut from 1/8-inch-thick mirror and topped with ready-made round mirrored coasters with beveled edges.

    • An Eye for Detail

      An easy and inexpensive way to add extra detail to your table is to embellish your piece with precut mirrored tiles from a home store, like the ones featured on this demilune table. For a small fee, many home stores or glass shops will attach the pieces of mirror to the furniture for you.

    • From Simple to Sleek

      You can mirror just about any piece of furniture. The only prerequisite is that the edges be square and the surface flat. The simple and clean lines of this table were the perfect candidate for a mirrored facelift.

    • Modern Mirrors

      The simple shape and clean lines of this table make it the easiest project to create. To get the sleek look of this table, sand and prime the unfinished piece. Then spray-paint the bottom half of each leg and the outer edges of the tabletop with glossy black. Cover the top with a square of 1/4-inch-thick mirror. Glue large rectangles of mirror around the sides of the table, creating the long apron that gives this table its sleek, contemporary look.

    • From Bland to Bold

      This craftsman-style table has all the potential to be something unique and beautiful. With some creativity and bold additions it was transformed into a mosaic masterpiece.

    • Masterful Mosaic

      Give guests a taste for what's to come by welcoming them with a stylish entry table. To get this mosaic look, set small mirrored tiles into soft gray grout, making the pattern even more prominent. For a cohesive look, match the base paint color (visible on the edges or the table top and legs) with the grout color.

    • It's All in the Details

      A combination of rectangular and square mirrored tile, some of them blue for extra design kick, fit together to make a timeless basket-weave pattern.

    • From Drab to Fab

      A bland bedside table is transformed into a pretty table, suitable for anywhere in the house.

      Sleek Art Deco Style

      A combination of stained wood and mirror finishes give this occasional table an Art Deco air. To get this look, sand, stain, and apply a coat of polyurethane to an unfinished wood nightstand. Remove the drawer and cover the opening with a piece of mirror, creating the look of a solid apron. Leave stained wood peeking out from beneath mirrored legs for reasons both practical and pretty: The contrast of mirror and wood is striking, plus mirror is kept higher than foot or vacuum cleaner level to avoid damage. When measuring for the pieces of mirror on the legs, be sure to plan for one piece to overlap the adjacent piece for a clean edge.

      Classy Glass

      For extra design dash, we covered the tabletop in nine separate pieces of glass, laid out in an eye-pleasing rectilinear pattern.
