I love the new sunburst mirror trend. It’s versatile because you can make it work with more than one decor style, and it instantly upgrades a space from bore to more! And, once again, Goodwill is where it’s at for turning plain ol’ stuff into a little bit of awesomeness for your home. I had planned on heading to Hobby Lobby to pick up a mirror and some dowels for my sunburst mirror, but while I was at GW last week I came across this mirror and these skewers. Perfect!
First, I cleaned up the mirror since it was bit dirty. Next, I drew a circle about 1/2″ in on the backside of the mirror so I’d have a guide to line up the skewers (this is key so that you don’t end up half way around the mirror and realize that it’s not symmetrical!). Then, I just began hot gluing each skewer to the backside of the mirror.
Once it was done, I attached a small hook to the backside of the mirror to get it ready for hanging.
It turned out so great! And it was just $3.00 to make. This is seriously one of my favorite project simply because of the cost. Sunburst mirrors can be pretty pricy off the shelf, so I really scored with this one!

Looks great! Have you considered staining it so it stands out against the wall a little more?
Hi Cassandra! Yes, I’m actually going to spray paint it gold eventually, but I love the natural look for now. :) Thanks for stopping by!
