I Finally Got a Sunburst Mirror!!

I have been wanting a sunburst mirror to go behind the bed in our master bedroom for a long time. I searched online and at antique stores. Sure I found a few, but all way to rich for my wallet! I stopped at Steinmart in Birmingham last week and low and behold, there hung two sunburst mirrors in the hall leading to the bathroom, of all places!! Believe it or not, I got two of them for $39.00each after a couple of price reductions and another 25% off because of some dings! I knew that I would be changing the gold finish anyway, so the damage did not matter.

So, what do you think? I know that some of you wonder why I would change the gold finish. I did like the gold, but I hope, hope, hope, that the shabby finish will look better in the bedroom. I can't wait to see how it looks over the bed. I will post a pic tomorrow when I have it up.


  1. Looks gorgeous!! your home must be spectacular. you must share more

  2. Rhonda Kaye, look at you, girl! I am so impressed....with your blog, with your talent, and with yet another product of it--the mirror! There is just no end to your possiblities...when I retire, I want your to help me discover my latent talents. I am a fan forever! Your big sister--love you! js

  3. I love them both ways!! Are you going to age the mirror itself with some stain?

  4. Alex,
    I am going to try to find a convex mirror to replace the original mirror. If I can't find one, then I will probably oxidize the actual glass a bit.


So happy you are here - I love your comments!
