Creating a Sunburst Mirror

You might recognize this photo from the reveal of our new entry credenza.

Were you curious about what I was planning with this mess? Some of you have probably seen this tutorial on other blogs, but here is my version of the Target mirror + BBQ skewer sunburst!

I’ve been loving all the sunburst mirrors I’ve seen for sale lately, but being more of a DIY lady myself, I was inspired by Dwellings by Devore and Isabella & Max Rooms to make my own.

Lots of hot glue and about 120 skewers later …

and I ended up with this!

I loved the finish Mrs. Devore used so much, that I just had to grab some gold metallic spray paint (and be a total copy cat). ;)

I started by spraying the back of the mirror.  I was amazed at how quickly this spray paint dried.  Ready to flip in 10-15 minutes!

Ready for the finished result?  Here she is!

Check out that mirror/ lamp/ credenza combo – Bllliiiiiiing!

I still need to accessorize this table a bit, but first I want to thank Mrs. Devore and Janell at Isabella & Max Rooms so much for the mirror inspiration!  Bloggers rock :)

    This project made me chuckle — I kept thinking about the pointed end of those skewers! I know I’d walk away with at least an injury or two.

    Awesome idea. And what steady hands you have!

    I LOVE this. I have always wanted a starbust clock or mirror – this is perfect. Did you cover the mirror with foil when you were painting? I couldn’t tell.

      Hey Michelle,
      When I was painting that sunburst mirror, I just taped a circle of newspaper to it with painter’s tape. It wasn’t perfect, but if you get a bit of paint on the mirror itself, you can always just scrape it off. :)
