Ever Since I saw this tutorial on Isabella and Max I knew I wanted to make a sunburst mirror. Actually, for a long time I had been looking into buying one but always came up discouraged at the outrageous prices. So, when I found such an easy and thrifty tutorial, I was excited!!
My next assignment was to find the perfect round mirror to transform. I didn’t want to spend more than $20 and it had to be a mirror with a flat wooden rim that the wooden rods could be hot glued to.
It took me many months of looking around Target, online, thrift stores and other random places before I found a clearance mirror at Target for less than $20!!
Sadly, I can’t find the picture of the mirror. But, it was originally lime green. I followed the tutorial exactly but instead of bamboo sticks, I used small wooden dowel rods found at the craft store.
Here is the mirror prior to spray painting:
And here it is after!
It found a spot above our bed.
It did turn out much larger than I was expecting. I guess my mirror was bigger than the one on the tutorial. But, I do like it.
I like how the white is very subtle on the gray walls.
Since it’s such a “statement” piece, I think the subtlety in color works.
Remember that light fixture?
The round mirror echos the round light fixture and circles in the shams
Which I’m now realizing I never posted the finished shams on the blog. So, here they are!
I’m working on a couple of accent pillows now.
Has anyone else attempted a sunburst mirror?
