Make a DIY Art Deco Style Table

A plain wood table goes from bland to bold.

What You Need

  • Unfinished wood nightstand
  • Sandpaper
  • Wood stain in desired color
  • Water-base polyurethane sealer
  • 1¿4-inch mirror
  • Mirror mastic adhesive and caulking gun

  2. Sand all surfaces of the table and wipe away dust.
  3. Stain all surfaces of the table, following manufacturer's instructions; let dry.
  4. Apply polyurethane sealer.
  5. When polyurethane is completely dry, lightly sand the surfaces where mirror will be applied.
  6. Have the tabletop cut from 1/4-inch mirror.
  7. To add visual interest, have the tabletop mirror cut into smaller rectangles and squares leaving 1/32 inch between the pieces.
  8. Glue the mirror pieces to the tabletop; let cure.
  9. Use kraft paper to make a template pattern for two opposing sides of leg, stopping 2 inches from the bottom of the leg.
