I have this little end table that while cheap, I quite like. Perfect size and cute, but then I sourced this for a client and couldn't get it out of my mind.
That vintage mirrored top, amazing. So I started looking around to see if I could find maybe a mercury glass treatment, which I did, but it is for glass, not painted wood. I wasn't satisfied so I then turned to a plain mirror idea, no good. in the end I decided to go for the chrome color by Rust-Oleum
A $6 can of spray paint so no big deal, if it doesn't turn out I paint it back to black. So, did it work?
I guess, I mean it's silver and a little shiny, which is better than flat black. It's not gorgeous and it certainly isn't the foxed mirror table that I so adore. But, I'm not painting it back to black either so I don't mind it. Worth the six bucks? Sure. Best project ever, not so much.
