Long Time No Crafty!

I’ve had this side table for a while now and it doesn’t have a top. I got it on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $19.99. SWEET!! Until we stepped out the store to the parking lot and BANG! The glass top came off, fell and broke.


It’s About Time!

I finally came up with an idea to revive this beauty! This project is pretty straight forward and below is what I used to put this together:

  1. Tray
  2. Magnets
  3. Super Glue
  4. Pencil

So I planned my trip to Home Goods to look for a perfect item as a table top. My ideas for the top includes a tray, chopping board (specifically bamboo) or some kind of wooden frame with some quotes in it. And I found the perfect tray to use 🙂


Let’s Get Started.

  1. Mark of the bottom of the tray where I need to glue the magnets.
  2. Glue the magnets and let it dry.
  3. mount the tray on top of the stand.

A few things…

Why magnets? The tray I got has a mirror surface. I don’t want to risk drilling the bottom and break it. I actually stacked two magnets on each corner so it has enough height. Also I can still change my mind later if I find something better for the top 🙂

Lastly, I added shelf liner on top pf the mirror. I have a toddler so some heavy and sharp items might just magically land on the mirror and break it 😀

AND HERE IT IS!!!
