So remember when I said a had a couple saa-weet projects brewing?? This is number two. I've long been a fan of sunburst mirrors. They're seriously all over the design world the last few years. But.. they usually come with a price tag upwards of $300. So what do I do? DO IT MYSELF, Darnit! :) And it was actually pretty easy.
It started with this:
Which turned into this:
Combined those with a simple mirror left over from our wedding:
A little bit of planning:
A little sanding..
Slap on some yummy dark stain:
Cut out cardboard a wee bit smaller than the mirror
Attach it to the BACK side of the wood pieces (oh, liquid nails, how I love you..).
Flip it over, and use liquid nails to attach the mirror to the TOP side.
Add another layer of wood pieces, attaching with liquid nails, and overlapping the mirror by about 1/2".
A bit of a creative hanging apparatus: jumbo size paint stirrers cut into small pieces, liquid nailed to several pieces of the wood, anchored with short little screws. Two holes drilled & thin wire weaved through.
And, that's all folks!
Love! Oh yeah.. I didn't spend a dime. I had all this stuff just laying around.
