I now have a mirror in every room of my house.
Some rooms have more than one.
It really is a sickness, y’all.
Last week when the Spring Pinterest Challenge was announced, I knew it was just the motivation I needed to move a project from a “pinned” status to a “pin-there-done-that” status.
With the laundry room makeover on my mind, I have been busy digging up inspiration for ideas to help laundry feel like less of a chore by having a more stylish space. For this challenge, the project that came to mind was a Clothespin Starburst Mirror.
There is something about wooden clothespins that make me happy. Like at any moment I could open my laundry room door to an open field with soft breezes and a clothesline billowing my linens in the fresh air.
As you are very aware, my laundry room is currently the exact opposite of that description. At least this mirror can bring me a little happiness when I do laundry.
Making this Clothespin Starburst Mirror was pretty easy too. Just a few inexpensive things needed:
I bought this mirror a couple years ago and it surfed around the house until it eventually landed in the attic. The back still had a price of $5.45 from the thrift store. Score for using something I already had! It is fairly large in size, about 18 inches in diameter.
2. Wooden clothespins-
I found these at the Dollar Tree and needed 3 packs (had some leftover too)
3. Gorilla Glue-
Had on hand (could use a glue gun as well)
So for me, this mirror cost me a total of $3, and I got something out of the attic storage! Win- Win!
Then I applied Gorilla Glue to the back of each clothespin.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles everywhere. The joys of being little buddy’s mom!
(Husband came by while I was gluing and asked if I was going to glue the cars on too. Ha, I guess nothing would surprise him…)
