Last week’s dollhouse diy was a teeny lamp. This week, I made a coffee table for the living room … and it’s sparkly.
Here are the materials you’ll need:
- Glitter ribbon
- Mirror circle (3″ diameter)
- Small wood squares (1″ x 1″)
Step 1: Frame the table
I cut the ribbon to the length of the outer edge of the mirror, applied glue to the top edge of the ribbon, and then attached it to the outer edge of the mirror (keeping the top of the ribbon aligned with the top of the mirror.)
Step 2: Glue the base
I glued the two wood squares together to form a teepee-like shape. I chose small squares and angled them so that the height of the table would be coffee table height. You could use larger squares and/or create a steeper angle if you’re making a kitchen or side table.
Step 3: Paint the base
Once the glue was dry, I painted it a dark espresso color.
Step 4: Attach the mirror to the base
Once the paint was dry, I glued the base to the bottom center of the mirror and placed some wooden cubes on each side to support the structure while the glue dried. I also placed extra glue along the intersection of the legs to make the table a bit sturdier.
