I have been loving the look of mercury glass lately.
These images are from Pottery Barn. They have quite the variety of mercury glass. You may remember I made an ornament that resembles mercury glass.
I decided to make a few glass vases to put in the guest bedroom. This is so easy, and you only need 2 items to create a mercury glass look.
All you do is spray the glass all over with water. Immediately paint a coat right over the water, covering the entire vase. (I couldn’t get a picture of this step). I did one at a time. This took all of 2 minutes to complete.
Let dry and repeat the process depending on how it looks. I didn’t need to repeat the steps.
You can see how the water gives it the antiqued look. It obviously isn’t an exact replica of the mercury glass above, but I love the look and love how a small addition such as the glass vases can add to the decor of a room. Again, this project took all of 2 minutes to complete (not counting the drying time…).
So, are you a fan of the mercury glass look?
