i have been busy working on DIY projects for my office/entry.
i decided to take a break from painting the brick (hallelujah!) and make a sunburst mirror.
since i have only budgeted $100.00 for the space, it needed it to be very inexpensive.
here is how it came to be:
step 1: purchase flat wood sticks, mirror, embroidery hoops, and paint.
step 2: break sticks into the desired length
step 3: create design
step 4: paint sticks ( i mixed two colors together, metallic gold & splendid bold)
step 5: let sticks dry
step 6: lay sticks out
step 7: glue sticks on the back of the mirror
step 8: turn mirror over
step 9: paint embroidery hoop
step 10: glue embroidery hoop on top of mirror
step 11: glue hanging mechanism on back of mirror
and your finished!
total cost $19.00
it kinda has a retro feel.
i think it will look amazing hung against my crisp white brick fireplace.
i can't wait to get my fireplace painted and the mirror hung!
