To get started, you’ll need the dresser (duh), a sander, sandpaper, primer, spray paint, glue, mirrors, and dresser knobs. If there are any items that you need that are not on hand, you can head to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot. Goodwill and other secondhand stores are also a great place to look around if you do not have a dresser on hand already.

Remove all of the hardware from the dresser and sand the surface down. Any edges of the dresser that are going to be spray painted need to be primed. Then, spray paint the white areas that are going to be primed and give the paint a few hours to dry. Once the dresser has had the chance to dry, move it into the new room. Lay the dresser down with its drawers up and glue the mirrors on. If you’d like to make sure that the mirrors are firmly attached, put some books on top for added weight.

Wait for the mirrors to dry and find the center of each drawer. Make your marks, as this is where the knobs will be glued on. The dresser can now be placed on its feet and this is when the larger mirrors are glued to the top and sides. Give the glue a chance to dry and your new, mirrored dresser is now good to go.

One last pointer: take the time to have your mirrors ordered from a professional glass company and give them some advance notice. The panels may take a few days to prepare!
