DIY Mirrored Vanity - Before and After

 A mirrored vanity makeover well worth the work!

Now that doesn’t look too bad (if you were born in the 70s) haha.. but I was looking for something a little more sleek and sheek!

Mirrored Vanity Before and After


To start the process off, I spray painted the desk first with Krylon K09188000 COVERMAXX Primer, White, 12 Ounce and then generously with a Krylon K05125500 ColorMaster Paint & Primer Brushed Metallic Spray Paint, Satin Nickel, 11 Ounce.

Side Note: Be sure to shake cans really good before painting and spray away from the furniture on the initial spray to prevent a big blob of paint landing on it..:)After letting that dry for what seemed like forever…I started on the mirror application (my favorite part)

So LOWES became my favorite store the day I found out they cut mirror  for free (if you buy from them of course) I took measurements of  the table I wanted to apply mirrors to, ran over to lowes (Glass and mirror cutting section) and WAAAA-LAAAAAH, mirrors cut to size!
They didn’t have mirrors big enough for the top…so I had them divide the top measurements in half and just cut two mirrors to equal 1. To apply the mirrors to the table I used Mirror, marble and granite adhesive.

I applied a generous amount underneath, pressed the mirrors down in the appropriate spots and clamped them down with small clamps to hold the mirror into place.

I let this sit for about 24 hours. I know we all hate the waiting game but you must give ample time to let the adhesive. dry or else you’ll be wondering why your mirrors are hanging off 6 months down the road.
Once it was all dry it was time to apply the drawer knobs!

I had to take the drawer off to apply these so I could sit the drawer upright.

I glued the knobs on using strong glue, a really strong glue, so be careful not to spill it anywhere. I applied just enough for it to stick and let it sit for another 24 hours. (that’s right …more waiting) After that was dry , I put my drawer back on and that was that! My old wooden table became a BEAUTIFUL VANITY.
