Turn Glass to Gorgeous!

This is my latest obsession. I have been in love with a vintage style forever. And I found a pin from being Rachy where she spray painted glass jars giving them a reflective finish.

I tried it once,  loved it,  then went around the house looking for more to paint!  Because we use mason jars as our drinking glasses, (I upcycle our pasta jars!) I always have plenty on hand for any craft.

All you need is anything glass,  a vase,  a bowl,  a Mason jar, whatever your heart desires and a can of Krylon’s Looking Glass spray.

In a well ventilated area,  place your glass item on a protected surface. Spray lightly and in passes so you don’t get too much on it and it starts to drip.

If you do get a drip,  like above,  just quickly wipe it off with a paper towel. The faster the better. I like to rotate the glass as I spray to keep it even. The best part of this spray is that if it’s not perfect or even or a little blotchy, it can still look great.

My latest project I wanted to spray a quilted jar to hold flowers for my daughter’s room. Once I sprayed it, I took a small piece of sand paper and lightly went over the jar to give it a more imperfect,  vintage feel.

*Here is a bonus*!  I found these great additions, at Hobby Lobby, to jar lids to help separate the flowers.

They just fit right on top under the lid.

Love the elegance of this look and is so easy!  What will you paint?
