Mirror Mirror on the Wall

So remember when I told you guys I was working on something crafty here, well I had been waiting for part of my supplies to come in the mail.  And I finally received it.  Krylon "Looking Glass Spray".  I first saw it on The Nate Show.  And I thought how awesome is that?  So it came in the mail today, and I started on my project.



First I prepped and painted the Ikea Ung Drill Frame I purchased with Rustoleum Gloss Pure White.




Then I cleaned and dried the glass for the frame and sprayed it with the Krylon "Looking Glass"
here is before the spray.



And here is after three coats. Hanging over our entry table just so we can show you what it looks like now.  The lighting in the garage was not the greatest.




I love the antique look it gives to the glass and there is still one more thing I am waiting on to give it a personal touch, which should be getting here sometime today.

And then Hopefully I will be able to show you the completed project and where its permanent home will be.

  6. The Looking Glass from Krylon is definately great for any DIY Mercury Glass projects you would like to create or antique looking mirrors from glass. Loving it so far, and cant wait to try it on other projects.

  9. Bravo! This was what I wanted to do as soon as I saw the frame at Ikea! Not sure how much it would cost to get glass to fit & was toying with the idea of using this paint when I saw it on another blog. I'm so glad to know it worked for you. How good of a reflection does it provide? Good enough to check one's appearance in?
    Thanks! :)

  10. Michelle, the reflection is good enough to check your reflection, right now where it hangs I look just to be sure my teeth dont have any lipgloss on them and to make sure my hair is not all over the place and it works fine. It give you like a hazy antique mirror, if you know what I mean, not like a brand new mirror.
