A while ago I found this amazing DIY sunburst mirror tutorial on Stephanie Lynn's blog, Under The Table and Dreaming. From that moment on I fell in love with her blog. Most of her projects are home decorating projects and she is so kind to share all the instructions for making them.
It's an inspiration heaven
Here is the mirror I made...
I followed her instructions for making the mirror. It was fairly easy to do but I made one mistake. I decided to use wooden skewers that I had at home. It's always good to use stuff you already have, right? WRONG 
I ran out of skewers when I was halfway through with gluing them on and I couldn't find the exact same kind again.
So I had to take the whole thing off and start again. 

But.... I have a brand new sunburst mirror and it was totally wort the effort. The plan was to hang it over our bed but after making this I realized that it wasn't a good idea at all. These things are seriously poky. And I didn't want our eyes to bee poked out if it fell down from the wall. 
Luckily we have a surplus of empty walls in our apartment :) 
And we found a place for the mirror above our television. 

I'm so happy with the result. 
What do you think? Have you made a sunburst mirror?
Lots of love

I've been wanted to make a sunburst mirror and still ahven't done it. Yours looks amazing! I worry about putting things over our bed and it falling off and landing on us at night too. sharpe things that could potentially poke the eyes would be bad.... I'm with you on that decision :)
