Great way to transform some Goodwill lamps: Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint, which dries into a mirror-like finish. First, spray the body of your plain glass with clean water. While the surface is wet, spray it thoroughly with Looking Glass spray paint. The water will prevent the paint from completely adhering to the surface – exactly what’s required to achieve the characteristically blotchy look of genuine mercury glass. Let the paint dry overnight, and repeat the process to the darkness…

Bedside lamps with drum shades - Use Looking Glass spray to create a mercury glass effect on thrift store lamps.

Get the Mercury Glass look by pre-spraying your desired object with water and just a touch of dish liquid, spray with Krylon Looking Glass paint, let dry, repeat process until you achieve the 'depth' you are happy with.

DIY TIP: To make your own mercury glass simply spritz glass with water then spray with Krylon "Looking Glass" spray paint and voila!

PInner said "Cover three 4'x8' pink foam insulation boards from Home Depot in a large repeat, silk, damask fabric, which ended up being much less than any art I would have found in that size. I just stretched the fabric around each board and staple gunned it to the back. You could also use spray glue for this application. Lots of Bling without too much CaChing!!!"
