I came across this awesome outdoor sunburst mirror at The only problem is there is no tutorial (it is a photography blog after all). But I thought this mirror is just too wonderful to pass up sharing. So I went cruising the net to see if I could find a tutorial somewhere. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one for this. But fortunately, I found this one…




…at good ‘ole trusty It’s basically the same design, without the character of the beautifully weathered picket fence posts. But all you need to do is follow the same instructions with your fence slats.

Now, if you don’t have an old picket fence laying around, I suggest pulling your neighbor’s up in the middle of the night… Just kidding. Maybe. No, really, you didn’t hear that from me. ;-)

Where ever you get your picket fence, you can strip the paint. It looks like this sunburst’s been stripped. But keeping the old peeling paint on can also have a charm of its own. Either way it’ll be simply lovely. So enjoy making your very own picket fence sunburst. Here’s the link to the Home Depot tutorial…

    oh thats pretty i just demolished my picket fence now i have uses for the pickets. We recently bought a house in Wellington, FL and needed to replace a fence that was literally falling apart. We figured we needed a completely new fence installation so we contacted Fence Crafters. I would highly recommend them. Their materials were quality and their crew was awesome!

      Cool Olivia! Oh, I’m sure there’s lots more things you can use that extra wood for too! Like, cut off the ends, white wash it and make a plank wall! I’m thinking of doing a plank ceiling so that kinda on my mind right now. :-)
