I came across this awesome outdoor sunburst mirror at heirloomphilosphy.blogspot.com. The only problem is there is no tutorial (it is a photography blog after all).

…at good ‘ole trusty homedepot.com. 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.

  1. 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. :-)
