Topless Table Becomes Mirrored Bar


Who can pass up a free piece of furniture? Certainly not me! A friend had attempted to sell a table base online and after no takers, she offered it on Facebook for free. Luckily, I was the first to respond with great excitement. My visions of a wonderful vintage marble top bar quickly faded when I realized a piece of marble was going to cost upwards of $100. After painting it with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris Linen, accenting it with white, distressing, and finishing it with several coats of wax, I opted for a $30 piece of slightly imperfect mirror. SO glad that I went with the mirror as my crystal barware reflects beautifully, especially in candle light. THANKS, Amy for the topless table which is now my bar.

Painted white into the grooves. Love that the original casters are still on the table.

Love the finished bar. Great thing is that this is a piece that will work anywhere...bedside table, end table, etc.

Not bad for 30 bucks...thanks, Amy.
