Redditor [ squishy0eye] lacked a coffee table and wanted an infinity mirror. So, in a keen combination of the two, she built an infinity mirror table the resembles a nighttime cityscape.
Skimming over many of table’s build details, [squishy0eye] paused to inform the reader that an MDF base was used underneath the mirrors, with a hole drilled for the future power cable. For the top pane, she overlaid privacy screen mirror film onto tempered glass, turning it into a one-way mirror. The bottom pane is acrylic plastic due to the need to drill holes to hide the cables for each ‘building’ — the same mirror film was applied here as well. Wood was cut into rectangles for the building shapes and super glued around the holes and in the corresponding spots underneath to prevent any bowing in the acrylic. A small gap was left in each ‘building’ to run the 5050 non-waterproof LED strips around and back into the hole for power.
After installing the bottom mirror, [squishy0eye] added some black paper on top of the buildings to hide the wires and LEDs as well as adding wood supports around the edge to create the slight gap between the mirrors necessary for the effect.
A quick LED test, and the top pane of glass was fit into place, creating an effect well worth the approximate $150 price tag.
Want some more LED action to compliment such a cool table? How about a TV made of LED strips that you can roll up and take with you.
