Creative Spotlight: Danielle Oakey Interiors

Today we are spotlighting a great DIY post from Danielle
Danielle knows how to design an amazing space
on a small budget and shows the steps along the way!

Hi, I am Danielle from Danielle Oakey Interiors.
I am so happy to be here today sharing one of my favorite DIY projects, my sunburst mirror.

Before I started this project I had been eyeing sunburst mirrors but couldn't swallow the hefty price tags.
This one does the trick and it only costs $19.00!



What do you think?

Here is how it came to be:


step 1: Purchase flat wood sticks, mirror, embroidery hoops, and paint from Micheals.
step 2: Break sticks into the desired length
step 3: Create design



step 4: Paint sticks ( I mixed two colors together, metallic gold & splendid bold)
step 5: Let sticks dry
step 6: Lay sticks out


step 7: Glue sticks on the back of the mirror
step 8: Turn mirror over



step 9: Paint embroidery hoop
step 10: Glue embroidery hoop on top of mirror
step 11: Glue hanging mechanism on back of mirror

And you're finished!

Total cost $19.00




I love it when a DIY projects turns out as planned.



Thanks so much for having me today!
It was fun :)
