Mirror, Mirror

Martha Stewart Living, September 2007

Here's an illuminating idea: Transform a simple coffee table or end table by topping its surface with a piece of mirror glass. Not only will the silvery glass obscure any unsightly nicks scarring the table's surface, it will also create pretty reflections of light, instantly brightening a room. Simply measure the dimensions of the tabletop and have mirror glass cut to fit.

    I so wish that I could afford to do this in my living room, since it is so lacking of windows and sunshine. But it is expensive enough to have the glass or mirrow cut, but the beveling is over the roof for me. Two of my tables are ovals..

    I did this a number of years ago to all my table tops and I really like the look when it is clean, however, keep in mind that the mirror doubles the amount of dust that you have.
