Welcome to Jersey
I wanted something over my new headboard, but I just couldn't figure out what I wanted. One late night of google searching I saw these gold sunburst mirrors over and over again. And I coveted them. This looked much easier than the lampshade fiasco. With this as my guide, I started the diy search. (remember when you were a kid and you had to find all these unrelated items for a treasure hunt and you would run up and down your street looking for a paper clip, or a red balloon, it was some kind of birthday party game. ) These DIY trips sometimes feel like that.
Looks simple enough. I found the mirror right away again in Beauty Supply. BUT, there is always a but...paint stores do not sell or give away little wooden sticks here in this lovely land.
There is kebab though, and that is what this DIY-er used, kebab sticks. YEAH, we got those.
Third floor design studio - Great directions.
And then I went to the states, and I decided to just get a mirror, and paint it gold, because, well because I could. So I did.
I also bought back with me Martha Stewart's gold paint, but I like Tambour's gold paint much much better. And that is what I painted this with. And then I kind of went on a gold rampage. Super happy with the results. Gold paint is definitely worth the splurge.
