Last week I showed you my DIY Canopy Bed with the Starburst Mirror as an accent on it! I loved the way it turned out! I got my inspiration from this post on Pinterest!

If you saw my Bedroom Makeover Inspiration post then you have seen this room before! This is the main PINspiration for my entire room redo! I love this look! And since I loved the Starburst Decor so much, I decided to have fun and make my own DIY Starburst Mirror!

I had the mirror at home already, and I wasn't really using it for anything great.  All we bought was a package of wooden slat door stoppers from Home Depot, then my husband cut some paint stick size sticks of wood, all from scrap wood he had in the garage.  So we probably spent a total of $8 on this project, including the gold spray paint.

(I almost used paint sticks for the longer parts, but they were just too week, and my husband figured he could do something better....so I let him!)

First I laid all of the wood pieces out and painted them gold!

Then after they were painted I played around to see what type of design I wanted to make.  I finally decided to do it like this.

To start I glued all of my pieces to an old cd.  Then I saw how clumsy it was so my husband took the cd and cut a rough piece of scrap wood into that size of a circle and I used that for the back support.

Once I had all of my pieces in place I glued the mirror on top of the Starburst.  You definitely want to use a strong wood glue for this! I used hot glue at first and it fell off onto my bed.  Let's just say you don't want a lose mirror hung above your bed. It can definitely hurt someone!

DIY Canopy Bed

Finally!! Here for another bedroom update!

If you didn't know, we started a bedroom makeover after receiving new bedding for Christmas! I am finally getting my yellow & gray bedroom! And let me just tell you I am loving the way it is turning out!

It may be a slow process, since we both work full time and do projects between work & pay checks, but I love every thing we have done so far! If you want to see previous posts about what inspired our room, or our headboard makeover check out the links at the bottom of the post!

Today though I am going to show you all the canopy that we added to our bed, plus a few small accessories that we made!

From our beginning room inspiration we knew that we wanted to create our own DIY Canopy Bed.  I have always loved canopy beads, and although we don't have a normal 4-post canopy, we created our own style of a DIY Canopy Bead.

We did this by using curtain rods.  You see there are two curtain rods on the ceiling, then the curtains are draped just right to create a semi-canopy.

I loved the way it turned out with our new DIY tufted headboard! Then, I also made some pillows with various yellow/gray materials I found.  We are slowly adding more yellow accessories to the room.

The last accessory we handmade was a starburst mirror! I had researched several different ways to create this cute look, doing it myself of course, and finally found something I liked, then added my own little spin.  This Starburst Mirror literally cost me $0 because we used scrap wood, and a mirror that we already had at our home.  I will be posting a HOW TO make your own Starburst Mirror soon!

So here it is so far! Our bedroom! (the lighting is a little weird in this one).  I can't wait to get in our new house though, with a light gray wall behind this!!

COMING SOON: DIY bedside tables (hint, those are YELLOW!!)
