Sunburst Tutorial, Sunburst DIY, How to make a sunburst
This is the next installment of my sisters family room makeover.If you missed the first part you can see it here where we started with Roman Shades.
This is what we started with.... The TV overwhelms the old window that is hanging above it so we took it down and moved it to the other side of the room which I will show you later..it looks so good!! The window treatment needed a little sumpin sumpin to bring in some color so we made some cornices using the same fabric we used to make the roman shades

On the other wall you can see some of her ceiling medallions and other wall art that were kind of spaced too far apart so we took them down too.

We started fresh
Because the ceilings in this room are really high we knew we needed something big to go over the TV.
First we tried hanging 6 frames (eventually with some sort of artwork in them) but Tiff really wanted something a bit more bold. So we got creative!

NOTE: See the cute window cornices?... I will be posting the DIY on how we made those later this week. 

Tiff had this ceiling medallion that was painted turquoise remember in the pic above? Well we decided to make a large sunburst. Tiff called her local Ace hardware store to see if we could get a bunch of paint sticks and they gave her 50 of them for FREE!! They are so nice!! We hot glued the sticks onto the back of the medallion. 
When you place the sticks on do not push or the glue will squish out all over just lightly place them onto the medallion so that they kind of angle out as you can see in the photo.

Then Tiff spray painted the whole piece in a light grey and we hung it up above the TV and we LOVED how it turned out!
