Mirrored TV Dinner Tray

Mirrored TV Dinner Tray

"Tell me mirror, mirror, / Mirror on the wall / Thought you said / You had the answer to it all."

- Diana Ross, "Mirror, Mirror" (1981)

Mirrors can add instant glam to just about anything. I found this cute TV tray at Goodwill for only 6 bucks. I instantly got the idea to up-cycle it with some paint and a mirror. 

So here's what it looked like before:

Pretty right? Just kidding. 


First, paint the entire stand.

Next, let the paint dry. Then, use a damp cloth to wipe down the top. Apply Gorilla Glue all over the surface.

Next, carefully place the mirror on the top and clamp it down. Let it dry for 24 hours. 

Remove clamps, wipe down mirror and it's finished! 

Lessons Learned: 

  • Take the stand to Lowe's when getting mirror cut to fit the top, otherwise it won't be the most accurate.

But, I realized this before I started, but decided to go ahead and just work with the mirror. I don't think it's too bad.
