7 Easy Furniture Facelifts
Metallic scrollwork top
Scrolled vine or flower stencils add romance to a mirror-topped side table.
Remove the mirror top (or protect with painter's tape). Paint the frame a metallic silver finish or high-gloss gray for a silvery effect. Determine stencil placement on the mirror, and temporarily secure with stencil spray adhesive. Apply silver enamel paint with a stencil brush, stippling gently until the design is covered. To extend the scrollwork, reposition the stencil so that it connects to the existing design. Let the paint cure for 21 days, or bake according to instructions on enamel paint container.
