“after coveting numerous vintage mirrored tables ranging from $450 to $2500 on eBay and at other online sites, i decided to make my own using a 35” long ikea lack coffee table. while the cost for materials came out close to $200, i am really pleased with the results of my ‘luxe’ (it’s all relative) lack hack.
originally i wanted to replace the included shelf with a glass shelf but in the end liked the simplicity of the parsons style coffee table.
