I jumped on the sunburst mirror bandwagon but couldn’t believe how much these were costing from the stores. Being way out of my price range like the one below, I decided to get on Pinterest and look up how to DIY one myself.
I’ve been on a quest to furnish and decorate our condo in the most inexpensive way possible since it’s not our permanent home.
You’ve seen these mirrors, right? They’re EVERYWHERE right now. On all the blogs. All over Pinterest. What I love about these mirrors is that they may be on trend right now, but they also have a classic look that you could have on your walls for many, many years.
mirror: $6.00 for a pack of two off of Amazon (but you could find one even cheaper at Dollar Tree )
3 packs of bamboo skewers: $3
gold spray paint: $7
hot glue + glue gun: already had
Total project $16!
I know it’s not perfect, but neither were the shape of the bamboo sticks that make up the mirror. Each stick sort of bends in its own direction, so it was a chore to get them to lay in a semi-straight pattern.
I kind of love the fact that it’s not perfect- it gives the mirror lots of dimension and personality 🙂
What do you think? Do you love the sunburst mirror trend?
