Easiest Sunburst Mirror Eva

For months and months and months now, I’ve seen this round iron piece at local treasure trove called Old Time Pottery and have always thought it’d make a cool sunburst mirror.  But, I’ve never been motivated enough to dish out $16 for it.  Well, the two and I made a pit stop to OTP last week and here it was in the clearance aisle for $9.  I couldn’t resist so I swiped it up and away we went.

Here it was:sunburst 001

Here it is now:   sunburst 007

All I did was spray prime it, spray paint it (went safe with white), and glue a six-inch mirror I picked up at Hobby Lobby ($2 with 40% off coupon) onto it with some craft glue.

I thought I had more in-process pictures but I can’t find them which is totally okay because it’s so easy you don’t even need them, right?  All you have to do is find any sort of round iron-work decor and glue a mirror onto it for an instant sunburst mirror and that’s that.

It fills up this space a lot better than the little mirror did before:dec12011 011

However, it doesn’t stand out against the blue walls as much as I would like so, being that I smell a bedroom mini-makeover in the future, it will probably be painted another color – gold?  a citrony-green?  gray?  Follow along and you can be sure to find out!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Nice find! I like how it is kind of geometric looking. Looks way better now with the mirror and paint too. :)
