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!
So there you have it! An easy & cheap DIY Starburst Mirror! Plus you could paint it any color you want!
