I can have a starburst mirror too you know...

So Darin & I have been keepin our eyes out for a neat starburst mirror or clock to hang over our mantle...
we came across one once that we really liked at the Alameda antique fair.. but it turned out to cost over $200 AND it was missing spokes & had a few rusty bits on it.. and Im not about to shell out that kinda money for a damn mirror.
As I was browsing the net the other day I came across a tutorial for a starburst mirror & figured what the hell... I'll try & make my own damn starburst mirror.. and I have to say.. it came out pretty darn cool.
A couple wooden dowels, some various sized mirrors from the craft store, silver paint & a ton of glue sticks and voila!....

Starburst mirror!

We're quite pleased with it and hey.. it only cost us about $30 to make!

I'm thinking now that I have a scroll saw that my dad had given me.. I might just make some miniature wooden starbursts of some sort to hang up on the sides of the wall. It's about time we start decorating this house...
