Yay! A New Blog and a Sunburst Mirror!

Hello everyone!  I have finally gotten a new blog up and going.  My problem isn’t that I can’t figure out how to blog, I just want a blog with all the bells and whistles and I’m extremely computer challenged.  I’m just extremely tech challenged for that matter.  You don’t even want to hear about my cell phone….that’s another story.   I’m just gonna learn as I go and build this blog over time.  Any advice is always appreciated!

The purpose of this blog is to document and share projects that I have done around my house with my friends and family.  I love to decorate and I’m always dreaming of my next project.  I plan to post the things I do as well as instructions for how I did it, so that you can do it yourself if you want.  I follow many blogs as well as Pinterest, and there are some amazing people and ideas out there!  Please follow me on this journey as I take the next step in my dream of decorating full time.

Most of the projects that I will be posting about in the beginning won’t have as detailed of instructions or pictures as I would like.  This is because I wasn’t blogging when I did them, so stay tuned for much better posts in the future!

The first project I want to share with you is my layered sunburst mirror.  It came about in several different ways.  I read a couple of tutorials about DIY sunburst mirrors using bamboo skewers and a small candle mirror purchased from Hobby Lobby.  (Sorry I don’t have those tutorials documented).  So I made my mirror and spray painted it silver.  I then layered it over another mirror I already had for the layered look.

Here is my inspiration pic from pinterest:

And here is my version:

The larger mirror was a goodwill find that got some silver rub-n-buff, and the sunburst I made myself.  I attached the two using contact strips.  Total cost of this project was less than $20.00.   Thanks for stopping by!  ~Amy
