MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE TABLE..


Trying to make clients happy is often a challenge, when the client is an eighteen year old Princess from the Upper East side of Manhattan, it's next to impossible. Before heading out for a day of shopping with the sweet little one, I stared into our mirror and recited my favorite calming chant: it's all going to be okayyyy...it's all going to be okayy. Then it came to me...this little diva, high above the city in her glass house, would love mirrored side tables in her new bedroom suite. If she drops to the floor to pick up her bedazzled purses she can look at herself AND the mirrors will throw light around the room, expand the space and hopefully make her love this place!
TIME TO COMPLETE TASK: Two hours
COST: On sale at West Elm for $149. Also find similar tables at Bed Bath & Beyond for $69. Also, don't throw away pieces of broken mirrors..glue them on an old table or purchase inexpensive mirrors at Ikea and glue them in various shapes on garage-sale finds. Quick, easy and cheap!
STRESS LEVEL: Making a Princess smile: LOW
