Spring Pinterest Challenge Reveal

May 10, 2013

It’s reveal day for my Spring Pinterest Challenge! This was my first time doing a challenge during the actual challenge time. Even though I’m late to do my reveal. Next challenge I promise I’ll be better! The Pinterest Challenge was the creation of Katie Bower from Bower Power and every season Katie and Sherry (from Young House Love) challenge themselves, two co-hosts (this challenge it’s Emily & Renee) and their readers to stop pinning and actually create something by finding inspiration and putting their own twist on it. But anyways… to the good stuff…

Last week I show you my inspiration here. But to recap I’ll show my mood board:

SPRING 2013

I attempted my hand at making a starburst-ish mirror. And I am proud to say that I accomplished my goal with all fingers in-tact, only minimal amounts of swearing and for only $10.

Tah dah! It still needs to be hung, I know… I’m a bad blogger. With school starting this week I was pushed WAY farther back than I had really even imagined.

UPDATE: Here’s the mirror hung up in my bedroom!

Below is a gallery tutorial on how I was able to accomplish this. I’m pretty proud of myself I must say. It’s not perfect, but I love it. I made a ton of mistakes and was super frustrated at times but it’s done and I’m happy.

So, what do you think? I’m anxious to hear your thoughts! Did anyone else do the Spring Pinterest Challenge? If so share your link in the comments. I’d love to see the results!
