Bronze and Gold Starburst Mirror

I am not the only one to recently jump on the starburst mirror bandwagon. Debbie from One Day at a Time also recognized the popularity of these mirrors and wanted to get in on the fun. Debbie combined elements from a couple of her faves from Crate& Barrel to come up with a unique design that would work in her “1951 post-war cape cottage.” Debbie’s bronze-and-gold beauty was created using floral stakes, glue, and an octagon mirror for even more “50’s flair.”

What do you get when you combine a candle holder, a cake pan, and silk flowers from the Goodwill? A super cheap, designer-inspired cake stand perfect for displaying delectable desserts! Morena over at Morena’s Corner made this easy peasy dessert stand by simply gluing together her three items and then spray painting them for a uniform finish. The flowers are beautiful for Mother’s Day, but you could customize your stand for any occasion by using theme-appropriate items. Think rattles for a baby shower, toys for a kids birthday party…

Aly from Entirely Eventful Day wanted a beautiful weathered wood étagère from Restoration Hardware for her master bathroom. The problem? She didn’t have $700 to purchase it. What Aly did have was an old, metal, over-the-toilet shelving system. Aly refabbed the shelf with a fresh coat of glossy white paint and some wood to give it a more substantial and expensive look like her inspiration.

Who wants to spend a ton on things that are going to sit outside and be exposed to the elements? Certainly not Heather! Instead, she spray painted a thrifted rug and got exactly the same look for a grand total of twenty bucks!
