I've seen lots of wood shim mirror projects out there but this one really is my favorite. It combines the modern look of a sunburst mirror with an aged patina. And get this: she only spent $26!

Here's what you'll need.

  • existing round mirror (hers was a 20" el cheapo bought at Target year ago)
  • 8 packages of 18" long wood shims ($3.25/pkg at Home Depot)
  • piece of wood for the back of the sunburst (hers was a scrap piece of plywood ~ 20x20)
  • Wood glue
  • Gorilla glue
  • Primer spray paint (she used white)
  • Glaze (she used Lowes Valspar metal & patina glaze in pewter)
  • paint brush for glaze
  • hanging hardware (she took the hardware off the round mirror and reused it)
