Deco Bubble Mirror Renovation
Florida Plastics Projects

A retro, used furniture guy has another project for me. To reuse the yellow acrylic sheet that has been painted black, to save the budget. Orbital sand and buff, you know by looking at the pictures. Nothing technical, just labor stuff.

Really, gluing the glass bubble mirrors and breaking down the frame was the most time consuming part. Remember, this wall hanging unit has been around for decades. The masonite fiberboard backing was real fragile from years of moisture. His refurbish cost would have been about $250 for new, but is only $120 for this resurface and reuse job. Even then, I could tell he was hesitant to invest in it, not knowing if it would return a profit. I have to respect these used furniture flippers, they really do work and hustle.
