The first is Jeanne from JandJ Home. She posted a great tutorial to make this sunburst mirror. I featured it way back in March and then I finally made it a few weeks ago.
Jeanne's tutorial was so easy to follow I was able to watch a basketball game (Really? The playoffs have been going on that long?) and make the mirror.
I was a little unsure of how to hang it up, but I found an easy solution using picture hanging wire from Michael’s.
First, wrap the wire around the wreath frame on one side and then string it across part of the wreath (like on the back of a picture frame). Tie it off the same way you did the first side (like the picture above). Easy as the cast of Jersey Shore.
Once the mirror got into the guest room where its currently living, I realized there wasn't enough contrast between the wall color and the color of the shims so I put a dark stain on it. Much better for our room!
Thank you JandJ Home for the awesome inspiration!
The second blogger I have to thank is Sarah from Northwest Hospitality, for the instructions on how to make a coffee filter lampshade.
One pack of coffee filters helped transform an old lampshade into this beautiful one.
Thank you ladies for the wonderful inspiration and easy-to-follow tutorials that helped me create great decor pieces on the cheap! Pin It
