4. DIY Mercury Glass
Mercury glass is on it’s way to being more popular than bacon and mustaches, and I can definitely see why it is so beloved! But, unfortunately it’s also pricey. I’m seeing mercury glass on everything from ornaments to lamps, but who would have guessed that there is a mirror effect spray paint that makes this an easy DIY project even for craft-challenged folks to make their very own mercury glass! I especially like this idea for an old vase (probably because I have a dozen of them tucked away in a closet just begging to get used).
Go check out Amanda’s simple instructions for this over at Hammer & Heels!
***Tip*** I’ve also seen this project done by first misting an equal mixture of vinegar and water on the glass before spray painting it if you want more splotches in the final effect.
5. DIY “Industrial” Wire Baskets
Wire baskets look so pretty on a wall or on a countertop to organize your mail, kitchen bottles, or other small items, and I’ll bet you’ve never thought of spray painting the cheapo baskets to look modern and stylish! See how it’s done and where to buy these baskets over at A House Full Of Sunshine.
6. DIY Copper Tin Cans
Hard to believe you can transform tin cans into something as pretty as these! And, the chalkboard labels are the perfect finishing touch. Go check out this project and all of the details over at HOMEY Oh My! Amy will show you which paint gave her that perfect copper color.
