|My “new” Sunburst Mirror that will be a focal point in my Living Room Makeover!|
I am so excited to share my how to on one of my latest projects! I have seen a few of these floating around but decided that I wanted to upcyle something fairly hideous into something I love for my living room makeover. While I was out thrifting recently I came across a purple plastic mirror. This is how it looked before:
|I think this is very similar to the mirror I applied frosty eye shadow in back in the day…|
After bringing this little lovely home, it sat in my garage for a few days while I figured out what I was going to use to make it wonderful. I decided on paint stir sticks and bought a box of 100 from my local paint shop for a few bucks. I then chose a color. I decided to go with Krylon Paint in Caramel Latte it has just enough sparkle without being too much for this project. I then fired up my handy little glue gun (I use hi-temp, while I am probably missing important parts of my fingerprints it works wonderfully. It’s a trade off and worth it) and begin to glue my sticks into place. I did one shorter layer first that would be in the front, and followed it up with a second, longer layer behind it. As you can see here:
I love this! I will put this on my to do list for sure!
