I bought this Ikea mirror about the time I got my house. It was what started my love for Mid-Century Modern.
What I really wanted was something with more spokes and of course, the idea would be a real MCM sunburst mirror. Instead, I ended up revamping my existing mirror last night. I was at Hobby Lobby and they had this candle holder (50% off) that had what I guess were supposed to be metal “branches” that formed a circle. I’ve seen somewhere on a blog where someone flattened it out and made their own mirror so I was going to go with that idea.
I couldn’t find a mirror for the middle and decided to see if I could combine it with my existing mirror.
This was after using the Chrome spray paint I bought for my credenza. Some of the spokes broke off when I flattened it out so I had to hot glue them to the back.
I’ll add some small mirrors eventually to make it look more symmetrical.
I had played around with the looking glass paint on the mirror before and that is why some of it looks a little tarnished. A lot of it came off when I taped it off for the chrome. There is still just a hint of it to give it a retro vibe.
