I have been wanting to do a starburst mirror FOREVER. I don't have the patience to do the long sticks, and the wooden slat ones are great, but won't go with my house. SIGH! Well, about a month ago, I picked up this
I am in the process of lightening up my bedroom, so I thought if I painted it white and put a mirror in the middle, it would look pretty nice.
So, I took the clock part out
Then out came the glossy white spray paint. Pretty nice job.
Next, I purchased 2 black lampshades from Walmart to put on my beautiful white bases. On a side note, one of the lamps did not work, so I had to get another one from Goodwill and paint it. It isn't the same size as the other one, but it has a pretty cool shape, so I am happy with it. The lamp shades were pretty dull
so I put a small band of lime green ribbon on the top
I really want this funky green comforter with white vines on it for the bedroom, but I don't want to put it out until we finally sell and get our new place. So, I went shopping on Friday and found a coverlet, king size, for ONLY $20!! It is the colour that I want and it will do until I get my real one.
I put my lamps on my new nightstands
Ignore John's lacrosse stick. Why he keeps it beside the bed is beyond me.
Then I put my new mirror up
It is too small for over our king bed, but I am going to keep it there for now and find a place in our new home. I still have to paint our older furniture and get new hardware, but overall, I am pretty pleased. The room is light and airy now and I think/hope/wish that others will like it when they come thru with thoughts of buying.
So, here if a before
I am loving this new look. How about you?
