DIY Driftwood Sunburst Mirror from Blessed- AWESOME

Hi Everyone!  It's Shirley- back again at Shelli's request! 
Shelli asked me to post about my recent project
A Driftwood, Sunburst Mirror!!
So here she is!!! We are so proud of the mirror! 
It's a labor of love, I'm truly amazed how an idea will come, then to see it come to fruition, it's so rewarding!! I must say that without my husband John, none of this would be possible. 
Like I said before- I dream up these ideas, and he makes it happen! 
Thanks John. 

     Chloe said, "mom your mirror is so pretty"
Had to be extra picky, choosing only smooth, long, round wood
John routing
We routed out a two inch section around the base, then nail gunned the first section!

  • Wooden base from Home-Depot (17inches) $16.99
  • Mirror from Michael's (14inch) $7.99
  • Finish nails/ nail gun
  • Two inch section routed around base
  • Mirror glue from Home-Depot (liquid nails)
  • Mounting bracket's in back of mirror
  • All photos by Lynda Rueter, thank you!
So, who else besides me just said "WOW" out loud?
I mean, seriously?  This driftwood mirror is literally MORE BEAUTIFUL than ANY I have seen for sale....and they go for quite a pretty penny too!  Shirley is not only talented, but has the most loving spirit, ADORABLE children and super sweet hubby!  THANK YOU SO MUCH Shirley, for sharing with us another one of your amazing DIY projects, and all within a WEEK?  You're a cool chick and super talented!
