created at: 01/02/2012

I have a starburst mirror hanging in my bedroom above the bed, and my husband is always making some comment on how he is sure he will die from being impaled by one of the “rays” in the middle of the night.  He’s so supportive of my home decorating.  I also love utensil art, as we’ve seen in my kitchen before.  You can imagine, then, that I’d appreciate this DIY utensil starburst mirror!   An eclectic mix of silverware, painted porcelain, beads, and mirror, this piece of art- appropriately residing in the dining room- was a creation by Beverly of Flamingo Toes.

Goodwill Hunting

It's another week of my Goodwill addiction relapse and here is what I'm on.  It looks like a handmade starburst wall hanging.  It is extremely heavy.  I needed something like this about a year ago and bought tons of mirrord tiles to try to make one.  I thought that was going to be heavy!!  Anyway, a Saturday dash into my local Goodwill store # 3 found this awaiting me for $14.99!  I had to add a little mirror for $2.49 which I bought at the Hobby Lobby.   Continue Reading
