More Mercury Glass

Mercury glass

So many people think that great design and decorating have to be expensive.  So wrong.  In fact, some of the most astonishing beauty that I have seen has been created by people that are short on funds but high on creativity.  A couple of weeks ago, I posted a Tuesday tutorial on creating the look of Pewter, Aged Metal and Mercury Glass for very little money. The tutorial can be found here.

Well, the response to this tutorial was amazing.  We had so many people pin it on Pinterest and write us emails, give comments and talk to us about it even though the mercury glass tutorial has been done so many times before.  It is just one of those looks that is timeless and beautiful. So, I just had to do more.  Cathy and I decided that we would budget $30.00 and buy some glassware that we could create mercury glass for our own home.  We went to a thrift shop and did not spent $30.00, we spent $10.00!  Can you believe it?  We spent less than we expected.  How often does that happen?  Here are some pictures of my thrift store finds after I sprayed it as specified in the tutorial but before I distressed the glassware.

So we followed the steps to the tutorial and ended up with this gorgeous display for our home.  The entire display, glassware and spray paint, cost us under $25.00.

Beauty does not need to be expensive, it needs to be pleasing to the eye.  So stretch those dollars and that creative muscle, have some fun and make the world a more beautiful place.  Thanks for the quick visit.

Until next time,
