I have had it on my mind to do a sunburst mirror over our bed. I was thinking of something like this..
There are so many tutorials online using bamboo sticks, paint sticks, even plastic spoons. But when I stumbled upon a large round ikea mirror for $2 at a garage sale, my plan changed. So I searched the web and found inspiration.
ZGallerie had this one for $200
So off to Hobby Lobby and I was fortunate enough to wander in there when the mirrors I needed were 50% off. Here is what I started with
I wasn't really sure what pattern I would do, I just got different sizes. Unfortunately, many of the mirrors were broken, so my default of what was available, my pattern was formed. I hot glued the mirrors down, crossing my fingers that it would hold. I was really happy with the 2 layers, but didn't consider how I would pick up the mirror to hang it.
So while I was trying to hang the mirror, little mirrors started falling off. I was about ready give up. I thought about just pulling all the mirrors off and going a different route, but most of the mirrors were stuck for good, just a few were temperamental. So I decided to leave them off, get a better hook, because I didn't trust the little nail in the wall, hang the mirror, then hot glue the little mirrors back on.
I was so happy with how it turned out, I am just praying that the mirrors don't fall on us in our sleep.
So instead of a $200 mirror, I have a lovely $17 dollar mirror hanging above our bed.
