Apart from being a nice place to put a book or a cup over the sofa arm, it can pretend to be a regular end table too…
Or be the perfect place to put a laptop while binge-watching TV shows and “working”.

How to build the DIY C-table –
You can download the plans for the DIY C- table by clicking the button below.
It is a fairly quick and simple DIY project and I was able to get the whole thing built in one morning.
Here is a quick video showing you how to make the table and add the mirror tape. Step by step instructions follow below.
Step 1 – Make all the cuts and pocket holes per the plans.
Step 2 – Build the top, bottom and side by attaching the 2″x2″ to the 1″ x 12″ boards using pocket hole screws and wood glue.
Step 3 – Add the second layer of 1″x12″ to create the chunky look and to hide the pocket hole screws.
Step 4 – Attach the 3 separate pieces to form a C-table.
Step 5 – Fill in any visible pocket holes and paint or stain and add the top coat to the DIY C table.
Step 7 – Attach casters to the bottom.
Step 8 – Now for the fun part! Time to add bling!
I measured 6 ¼” from each side and added the 1.88″ mirror tape. Then I add the ¾” tape on each side leaving a ¾” gap from the middle tape. Be sure to leave enough to wrap around underneath. I went around the top to the back in a waterfall effect and on the inside too make it look like the mirror was “embedded” in.

I love how the mirror adheres really well to the wood and adds the perfect amount of personality!
I love having this table in the living room – especially for my late night blogging sessions in front of the TV.
I also love the look of the shiny mirror tape on the table!
