Hey, what’s up, hello. If this is your first time here, welcome!! Today we’re making a DIY Glitter table using just epoxy and loose glitter. This is a little more difficult than the other DIY glitter table I made. But this is an awesome project, very cheap, easy, and SO beautiful to update an old table into a beautiful shimmery piece of art.
Read your epoxy directions carefully and follow the directions.
With this epoxy, I had to mix part A with Part B together, then transfer it into another container + mix for addition 6 minutes.
During the last step of mixing the epoxy together, I poured in some loose glitter. I used jumbo glitter and smaller fine glitter because I wanted an even mixture of both. I didn’t just want jumbo glitter because I felt like it would look incomplete. The fine glitter kinda “fills in” the empty spaces since I’m also using jumbo glitter. I hope that makes sense. I just eye-balled it and made sure to stir it well.
When I poured the epoxy/glitter mixture onto the table, I was surprised at how sticky and resistant it was. Expoxy is like really think honey. You will need to double up the amount of epoxy you’ll need because it won’t cover what it claims when you add in the glitter.
The glitter makes epoxy harder to work with. I would recommend practicing on a smaller piece of furniture to get the hang of it. Or at least have someone there to help you!
This dries FAST especially with the glitter mixed!! It’s important to work fast and have an extra set of hands to help you spread it on. I spread it out using a foam brush. I didn’t have a lip on this table, so I spread it all the way to the edge and spread a thin coat of epoxy over the side edges. For the legs, I used mod podge and glitter. You could also use polyurethane like I did on this table.
- If you want your table to be SUPER glittery (where you can’t see the table underneath), use more epoxy/glitter and do NOT spread it; just let it run over/to the edges. You may need to build a lip, or a border, like I had to do on this DIY Guitar Pick table
After quickly apply the epoxy/glitter mix, use a torch to get out all the bubbles! Don’t get too close to the table because you can actually burn the epoxy. I would say apply the torch about 5 inches away from your surface to avoid burning it.
Let it cure for at least 72 hours.
I love the way this table turned out! It’s so beautiful and I get so any compliments on it all the time.
