Here Comes the Sun…burst Mirror

Sunburst mirrors are everywhere! They light up my day every time I see one! I showed you one in this post. It was found at Chinoiserie Chic.

Here’s a beauty from Ballard Designs. It’s the Suzanne Kasler Sunburst Mirror.

Check out this one found at HGTV.

There are so many varieties and ways to make your own. Just take a gander at Pinterest. Ideas galore!

Here’s my version…

If you notice, the mirror itself is hexagon shape. I found it at Restore for $3. The “bursts” are wooden skewers! I glued them to the back of the mirror using wood glue. I clipped the pointed ends, after I practically stabbed myself! I then covered and taped off the mirror and spray painted the frame and skewers with Krylon “Gold” in Satin finish.

I love the way it turned out! I took some inspiration from Ballard Designs and created this “Love” look…

Their mirror, that is similar in size, is $79.00 and their letters are 3 for $75.00. I got my mirror for $3 and used about $5 worth of wooden skewers. I got my letters at Hobby Lobby for 50% off of $9.95 each! Now that’s a deal!

Get the look for less! Always a plus and the sun will shine!
