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?
