Mercury "faux" glass!!

 This is one of those simple little DIY crafts that can make a big impact in your decor.  Silver mercury glass is tres popular these days but if you don't want to shell out mucho bucks for a collection of it, I say-make it yourself!!  Any glass you have lying around is perfect for this project.  A can of silver metallic paint is really all you need to buy. It sounds silly, but just spray the glass and voila, you have a beautiful faux mercury piece!!  It's amazing what spray paint can do for your home and psyche!!  Gotta fly-Claire


I found these cutie accessories at
 fav eye candy website to window shop!!

  1. OH, I need to give it a try. I have a lot of glass. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

  2. Now why didn't I think of this? I made mine with silver leaf. Duh. Your way is way easier thanks for the idea.

  3. Are you spraying the inside or the outside of the glass? I'm assuming the inside....? Don't miss DIY Thrifty Thursday at Thrifty101! :) Thanks for dropping by!
