Sunburst Mirror

Since we are on the subject of all things sunburst/starburst I thought I would share with you another great find that I snatched up the other day.  I've been adding small little touches to our living room recently to update it and give it a fresh look.  I wanted a large mirror of some sort to hang, but all of the ones I found were way out of my budget.  I stumbled upon this one in Garden ridge for a great deal.  It was actually a clock but I knew I could easily change that.

I meant to take a before picture but I forgot.  However, I can show you a picture of what the clock looked like to give you an idea.  It was a little tacky and the rest of the piece was black/silver and just not my style.

So, I spraypainted it with Rustoleum's aged brass spray paint and replaced the clock with a round mirror from the craft store.  I love it and it definitely makes a statement in the room.

I also added a few fun, new Chevron pillows that I made out of the leftover fabric from my dining room makeover

I'm working on a few more changes that I'll share soon!

Gorgeous! I made one with skewers a while back. I still have cereal box strips I cut up to copy that one at Under the Table and Dreaming. I haven't gotten around to assembling it. I also plan to make one out of wood shims that I saw in Blogland somewhere. It was so pretty. Love these!

Thanks! Amy, I have plans to make that one out of shims too! I also saw that one on Under the Table and Dreaming (which kind of reminds me of this one) but I'm not sure I have the patience to glue all those strips together...would love to see yours when you get finished with it!

Great vision! I just got back from Goodwill on my lunch hour and it was mostly trash. I didn't buy a thing, which is very unusual. There's always next week!

Love your new mirror. What a great idea to change the clock out for a mirror, it really sets the piece off. Your dining room is gorgeous. I just found your blog, I can't wait to read more.
