I saw this pin a while back and knew I had to do something with Krylon’s Looking Glass Spray Paint.
I also have been drooling over these mercury pendant lights.
Not terrible, but it was too transparent and “runny looking” (that’s the only way I know how to describe it). I didn’t want to see the bulb. After 2 more light coats to the inside of the shade and skipping the water, it was perfect!
*I’ve only used this light with the energy saving bulbs that don’t produce much heat. I’m not sure how it will do using regular incandescent bulbs.*
Before I proceed with, “Honey, look what I did!”, I like to find something comparable on the Internet so I can show my husband how much money we saved. In this instance, I spent $18.00 for the shade and paint. The pendants I had originally fell in love with are almost $400.00! Have you tried painting anything with the faux mercury glass spray paint yet? In case you are interested, that hanging mason jar you see in the background was purchased on Etsy from Midwest Finds.
