How To Make A Mirror Table

From Better Homes and Gardens HERE
This once ordinary table was transformed into a showstopping mirrored diva in just a few steps. Sand and prime the table, then brush the legs and the beveled edges of the tabletop with silver leaf and seal them with polyurethane. Trace a kraft paper pattern of the curvy tabletop, then have 1/4-inch mirror cut to fit and seamed to ensure a smooth edge. Have the side panels cut from 1/8-inch-thick mirror and topped with ready-made round mirrored coasters with beveled edges.

Sounds good on paper (and it looks really cute). Let me know if any of you try it, or have done a similar project...
