DIY Dollar Tree Table | DIY Large End Table | Mirror Furniture | DIY Room Decor | Display Table
for this project I started with six of the eleven by three canvases from

Dollar

Tree

and four of the five by five wooden deck or boxes so first I remove the fabric from the long canvases and as I mentioned at the firepit project I think the fabric on the newer canvases from

Dollar

Tree

are a lot easier to remove so all I do is just make a little coat beside this

table

and I pull up on the fabric and in the corners I use pliers to kind of tug on the fabric and it comes right off so once those are ready I set them to the side and then I was just started working on my wooden deck for boxes now there's actually two different ones that you can use depending on what's available to you at your local

Dollar

Tree

store the ones that I like the most and I think these are stronger are the ones with a little pop-up in the middle I've used these several times before all I do is just push in the corners with my thumb's I just push out the inside center piece and the second option you have is the seasonal

decor

boxes and they have a solid hard front but the seasonal winds I think they're a little harder to remove their front or the center they will come off you just have to push these quite a bit harder also I don't think that these are quite as strong so I would definitely use a nice of thick bead of wood glue in the corners to help reinforce the strength if you choose to use these in fact that's probably a good idea to do them all like that anyway another thing...

that you could do is add a staple or a couple of staples in the corners on one side and that would make these a lot stronger as well so once these are all prepped and ready I start with the long canvasses making sure to lay the staple side face down and of course you know you can remove the staples if you choose to do that next I Center one of these smaller five by five wooden deck or boxes on top of the long canvas and then I glue those two together with a permanent adhesive and hot glue so I've got the first one is glued on it becomes a lot easier so I just use my ruler and make sure everything is lined up and I'll keep working my way up with every other point until I have a total of three of the long campuses and two of the smaller ones in between them then of course I repeat this again to give me a second leg for my

table

next I'll paint all of the pieces with white spray paint primer and then I used a white gloss now I painted this before with acrylic paint and that works and looks great too so that's another option so once these are painted and dried then I trim out the rims or the edges around the little outline with mosaic

mirror

s on one side and then I used that he's a dominant on the other now the only reason I didn't do both sides the same way is because I'd already started with the small

mirror

s and then realized I didn't think I had enough to do both sides front and back I think the

dollar

tree

in hazel looks really nice on this...

both are easy just cut to fit and peel and stick so once my legs are all ready to go then I'll set them to the side and I'll start with the

mirror

top now you have a few options for this what I have is a 12 by 20 inch beveled

mirror

from Michaels and I paid about $4 for it the regular process 7 or 8 they always offer a 40 or 50% off discount on their website you can use on one regular price item and I'll just pull that up on my phone in the store another option is you can connect four of the five by seven

mirror

s from

Dollar

Tree

you can connect those together much like I did in my

large

vanity tray that I made when I'll link that below if you want to see it now when these two are side-by-side they are really really close in size but if you want an even bigger

table

top you can connect a four of

dollar

tree

s 8 by 10

mirror

s together either way either size it's all about the same money but I do think that 12 by 20

mirror

is the better quality it's thicker and it's the best bang for your buck plus it's beveled so I start by flipping the

mirror

over face down and just like the small

mirror

s from

Dollar

Tree

these have those little legs or the little foam legs so I described those and I wanted to add a little bit of trim just before attaching the legs straight to the

mirror

so when I tried several different things and what fit perfect were two of the eight by 10 picture frames from Daughtry so I remove the glass and the backing from that and I pull...

the tabs out with pliers use clear glue and hot glue to glue the frame to the back of the

mirror

and immediately I could already pick up on the picture frame and I could tell how secure it was to the

mirror

so next I'll glue a few of those wooden jingle boxes along the inside indention of the picture frame to help reinforce the strength and stability once I had that's how it finished and of course I repeated everything on the other side and to add more stability I use some smaller picture frame pieces that I have now these specific ones are the silver five by seven frames I glued the seven inch frame pieces kind of cupping over the row of the wooden blocks on the ends where my legs would go and I separate another five by seven frame in half making an L shape and I glue that down to help reinforce the strength of the structure even that much more before adding my legs now I'm ready for my legs so I had a generous amount of glue to the platform that we've just created and I place the top of my

table

leg where the mosaic

mirror

s are facing out and the dominant rep is facing in and I can tell right away that it grabbed really well so I repeated this again for my other leg next I'm going to add some gusset braces in each corner which I think that this is the most important step as far as the quality and durability goes the gusset braces make all the difference so I'll have a bunch of frame pieces from previous

dollar

tree

projects you know I'd...
already taken these apart but for this I'm using the small 4 inch frame pieces from the 4 by 6 frames from

Dollar

Tree

the once I have the easel in the back so I add a little bit of glue on both ends and then I connect that to the base of the

table

and to the legs which gives this tremendous support to the overall structure now you'll want to pull up and remove the bling grab in the corners and make sure that you glue on these directly to the wood and as it turns out the angle cuts on these frames and the size they fit just perfect so I'll repeat this for each corner and I felt like it was sturdy enough to hold just fine but I did decide to go ahead and add some countersunk screws so for this I use a 3/8 wood bit in the center where each piece connects and then I add a little screw now afterwards I was glad I did this step because it didn't take but a couple of minutes and it just you know made it that much more stronger so since the

table

is upside down when I'm doing this or if you want to do it this way and if you choose to do this step you can leave the hole as it is or add a little gem over the hole because it's not going to show but I did go ahead and add a little gem just a little dab and then I placed a gem right over the hole on the other side in that same area I glued three one-inch craft

mirror

s in the center this of course is optional and but what happened for me is I used a couple of screws that were just a tad too long I tried to find...
short ones but I did have two that were just a little bit too long and it barely scuffed it up a little bit so this will help conceal any flaws as well as add dimension to this design finally I add some bling wrap around the big frame or the trim and I used a roll of ribbon and this came from Hobby Lobby I cut 20 inches off of the ribbon and then cut that into four strips it covered all the way around the

table

plus the gusset braces once I was finished with that then I flipped my new

table

upright and this is the final result I'm loving this design in the build of this I hope you did too whatever you decide to do I hope you enjoy and as always happy crafting my friend I'll see you in the next one
