It only took about an hour for me to make 9 pieces of faux mercury glass, and even though it couldn't actually pass for the real thing I really like the weathered look of it.
|This was the first piece I made/|
|This jelly jar style light globe that I picked up at Goodwill is my favorite piece. Something about it feels nautical to me.|
I used the gold spray paint on some of the pieces, and some just the looking glass paint. I think the gold gives it a more antiqued look. I like it both ways and I'm glad I decided to mix it up.
|Side note: That wedding cake you see was made for us by my super talented father.|
I put some of my glass things back into the cabinets for now until I make more.
I can't wait to finish this room and show you the final result! Then it will be time for a wine and cheese party to break it in...
