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.”

I am thrilled to have Mrs. Polly Rogers back with another of her fabulous and frugal creations, and let me say that her starburst mirror is a true lesson in thriftiness! The secret ingredient here is bendy straws that Polly painted silver and attached to an inexpensive round mirror. Polly says, “This project is fast, cheap, and easy but DRAMATIC and stands up to the closest scrutiny.”

Melissa from The Happier Homemaker finally jumped on the sunburst mirror bandwagon after seeing an inspiration piece by Ballard Designs made of bone. Melissa had the instant idea to use popsicle sticks and an old clock from her stash to recreate it. I don’t think you could ask for better rays than those popsicle sticks!

Cheryl from That’s What {Che} Said was shopping at Hobby Lobby when she came across a sunburst mirror that she loved. It was way overpriced, so Cheryl continued on down the aisle to stumble upon a candle holder for $4 that boasted the same “sunbursts” as the mirror. The repurposing project came to life even better than Cheryl expected and was way cheaper at only $10.

Kim’s “bones” are actually pieces of transparency that have [...Read More]
