DIY Sunburst Mirror

Well I decided to jump on the Sunburst mirror making bandwagon.  My two favorites were Kate’s from Centsational Girl and Kristi’s from Addicted 2 Decorating.  

Kate’s Mirror

Kristi’s Mirror

Here is my version:

Here’s my supplies.  A round table topper (you know those 3-legged tables you can get a Walmart and cover them with a fabric topper).  
A mirrored charger I bought from Michael’s last year on sale, 6 packs of wood shims, and a glue gun.

I first centered the mirror on the topper and taped it to the board- I wanted to be able to remove it later so I could spray paint it.  I then arranged the shims around the mirror and hot glued them in place.

Once it was complete I removed the mirror and spray painted it with Valpaspar’s Metallic Gold.

The wood shims soak up the paint a lot- so if I were to do this again I would prime them first, then apply my gold.

Not too shabby- huh? Easy-Peasy:

    LOVE. Ok… so maybe I should jump on the bandwagon too. So how heavy was this piece when you were done and how awkward was it to hang? You can text me your answers. :O)
