Today has been a SUPER busy day.....I'm working on a few projects, but I did manage to finish a DIY sunburst mirror! So I thought I would share my process with you!
Lately it seems sunburst mirrors are everywhere, but many of them can be so expensive!
When working on Tanya's Modern Bedroom Mood Board, one of the things she really wanted in the room was a Sunburst Mirror. But if you remember we were trying to keep the room budget friendly, and most of the mirrors I found ranged from a hundred to several hundred dollars! Way to much for something that trendy and you may be tired of after a while! So I came up with a DIY Sunburst Mirror for her, that was only about $20!
Here's the pictures of the process....
A few of the supplies, I got everything at Michael's, the mirror was $4.99, the wood for the back was $4.99, and the wooden dowels were $2.99 for a pack. I ended up buying two packs, but had to go back to Michael's this afternoon to get another pack of them, cause I needed two more rods!! But
I may end up adding a few more just to fill it out and because I have more too use!
I used my handy carpentry app on my Iphone!
I spray painted the finished Mirror with Rust-leum's universal advanced formula, in a satin nickel finish. Like I said above I may end up adding a few more rods to the piece or maybe a bunch of small scattered on the currents rods! We'll see, but for now I'm liking it as is and I think Tanya will too!
What do you all think? Do you like the clean look of this sunburst mirror, prefer one with a little something more, or are they just not really your thing?
