Mirror, Mirror On The Wall, I Mean Table!

Hello Again From the French Hen's Nest,  

   Have you been looking at your end tables, bedside tables, and thinking they need to go!  Maybe they need to be painted?  They just need something.

   I have some old tables, that have seen better days, but I don't want to paint them, they wouldn't fit in painted.  I really can't see replacing them, because nothing new would make me happy.   What I have works in the space and is just the right size.  However, they do need a lift.

  While I was looking around in Ikea, I found a round mirror at a very reasonable price, and thought maybe it would look good added to the top of my table.  It fits very nicely, with about an inch rim on the outside..  I love it, my pie shaped table has a much newer, more current look now.  And I really like the mirrored look.

  Don't you think it totally changes the look?

   So if you are looking at your tables, and thinking they need a face lift, try adding a mirror, and see if that helps.

   Thank you so much for coming by.

Till Nest Time,

    1. Hi Megin, Thank you so much. I've tried to access your blog, but haven't been able to. I'll try again later. I appreciate your comment.

  2. Hi...just wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting our home at Marty's today. Nice to meet you both and Happy Easter!

  3. you know, your tables are rather nice
    but I do understand how you might feel
    they need 'something'... two years ago
    I went all out and painted every piece
    of furniture in my house 'white'.. really!
    Even the kitchen cabinets. Now it's sorta
    of Shabby chick and I'm so in love with
    it.. The Mr. just thought I lost my mind..haha
    Thank you so much for your visit to my blog
    and for the sweet comment.
    Happy Easter

    1. Hi Sandy, I'm sure your furniture looks lovely, I'm just not that brave. Thank you so much for coming by. Happy Easter to you.

  4. I like the mirror on that table too! Great way to give it some punch!

  5. I use mirrors on just about every flat surface in the house. I have a round side table with a water spot and a cigarette burn that I have not gotten to. Nobody but me knows this because the mirror hides the flaws.

    1. No one ever needs to know. I bet the mirror looks great.

  6. I adore mirrors and the wonderful reflections. That looks like it was the perfect answer for your table.

    1. Hi Carol, Thank you so much for your comment, I actually like the table now.

  7. LOVE this idea! Such a quick easy upgrade! Would love it if you would link this up to Give Me The Goods Monday: 1 Party, 5 Blogs! http://www.rainonatinroof.com/2013/04/give-me-goods-monday-linky-party-2.html

    1. Hi Jenna, Thank you so much for stopping by, and see you at the party, thank you for the invitation.

    I'm happy to be a new follower.

  9. You table is absolutely elegant with it's new, mirrored top!

    1. Hi Maureen, Thank you, I certainly like it a lot better. Thank you for stopping by.

  10. Wow. The mirror really makes the table look great! I’d love it if you’d link up to The DIY’ers link party. http://homecomingmn.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-diyers.html

  11. Newest follower here! I found you through the blog hop. You have a super cute blog, I can't wait to read more. You can find me at meandmr.com

  12. Hello ladies,
    I love your mirrored table. Mirror is so elegant and I love how it reflects your treasures so nicely! Thanks for sharing at my HOME, and I will remember Jeannie. Take care and enjoy your weekend.


  13. Such a lovely update! Thank you for sharing. You will be one of the features at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Pop on in and grab a feature button for your blog. Hope to see your prettiness again at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  14. Good Afternoon Jeannie, What a fabulous idea....this certainly updates your side table as mirrored furniture is very popular at the moment.
    I can always rely on you to bring something wonderful to our attention, as who would have thought a trip to IKEA would have produced this lovely update to your table.
    Sorry I have not been around to comment, but after arriving home from India, what with jet lag, it is taking me a little while to catch up with my favourite blogs.
    Have a lovely day,
    Best Wishes


We Love It When You Comment!
