Vintage Sunburst MirrorLately I’ve had a beachy vibe thing going on around my house. I have been noticing these great vintage starburst painted pics going around Pinterest and I just fell in love with that old beach vibe! So since I have been wanting to make one of the trendy sunburst mirrors, I decided to combine the two styles and this is what I came up with!  It worked out great and looks lovely in my Vintage Teal Playroom! Let me show you how I made it~

Vintage Starburst Mirror




Start adding dowels in a circle patternLay your square dowels in a pattern of a sunburst, slightly slanted so the mirror is on the left. (I used the thick dowels, but since they only come in random size packages. I needed 6 packs to get enough thick ones).

Dowels around mirror for sunburstUse a hack saw to cut half of them in smaller pieces so they do not overlap under the mirror.

NOTE: DO NOT BE AFRAID OF HACK SAWS!!! They are super easy to use, just secure your dowels in a vice and cut away!

Add twine to a mirrorHot glue twine around your mirror.

wrap twine around mirrorMine ended up being five times around. Tape off your mirror and paint your twine the desired color.

Paint the dowes from teal to light yellowFigure out your color scheme for your dowels and paint them. Paint light yellow to dark teal.

Lay dowels out for sunburstLay your pattern back out and hot glue to the wooden base. Hot glue your mirror over the top! That’s it and now I have a cool one of a kind mirror! Love it!! Hope you do too!

  1. I really like this. Shabby Chic is certainly a
    type of Feng Shui, giving a stress free, soft and feminine
    feel. A very loving way of decorating making people want to come in
    and relax, which is why it can also be known as the cottage feel.

  2. This is too cute! What a great interpretation of the usual sunburst. Thanks for sharing on Tout It Tuesday. Hope to see you tomorrow.
