I browsed the Buy Sell Trade groups in my area and finally found one I thought had potential. It needed a lot of work though, so here is my tutorial for my DIY mirrored vanity.
What You'll Need
Piece of Furniture to Refinish
Metallic Finish Paint $3.76
Gorilla Glue $4.97
Mirrors, Cut to Size
Sandpaper $2 (depending on refinishing needs)
Champagne Paint $15.54
Step 1: Find your piece
It could be something you find online, at a flea market, or even in your own house. Just find a piece that works for you and fits in your space. Mine was $50 on a BST group on Facebook. When I brought it home, it had wallpaper glued on top (hard to see in photos below), antique handles and flaking grey paint. But it was $50, so who cares.
Step 2: Strip/Prime/Paint (where applicable)
Leaving that time to dry (about 3 hours), I then took some leftover champagne paint from my kitchen project and painted the edges (trim) of the piece).
Step 3: Measure & Have Mirrors Cut
I began this project with the idea in my head that I'd just cut the mirror myself. I went to Home Depot and picked up a cheap wall mirror and a glass cutting tool kit. I tried a couple of times but all I succeeded in was breaking a couple pieces of mirror. My hands weren't steady enough to get the cutter in a straight line and in the end I decided to leave it to the professionals. First I inquired with a local glass cutting company, but they charged $10 a cut - yikes! I checked online at the bigger box retailers and found out Lowe's will cut glass if you purchase there.
I headed over with my measurements and encountered another hiccup. I wanted to optimize the amount of glass I got out of each piece (they only had 24 x 36 pieces) so I had to plan out all the cuts to ensure the maximum amount of mirror (and least amount of waste) from each. This took me back home with a return the next day, finally getting this done. I can't say these guys were that enthused to help me and at first they told me they didn't have mirror/do cutting until I walked them over and showed them where it was. So don't let them tell you they don't if you do the same! I left with my cuts 30 minutes (and a couple breaks later) and in the end spent $35.
Once all the mirror was finished and dry, I glued some handles on with the remaining gorilla glue. Adding some decor and I was finished with my piece. It did end up a little short so I may end up attaching some caster wheels to add some height but otherwise it works out great! And at $100 (with caster wheels) versus $1,300 I think I'm satisfied!
