Happy Holidays, everyone! Hope you're having fun decorating for the holidays. We are still in the process of the reno for our girls' "college crash pad". While most of the major projects are complete, we are taking the time to upcycle some vintage family pieces, to incorporate into our decor.
While going through some of the items in storage, we came across three of these old brass, touch style table lamps, that belonged to my mother.
We were looking through the Pottery Barn catalog and admired their Antique Mercury Glass Table Lamps, priced from $160-$200...
Not wanting to go out and purchase new lamps, I decided to try Krylon Looking Glass Paint on the old brass lamps.
I spritzed them with water from a spray bottle first, and immediately followed that with the Looking Glass Paint.
We found the burlap shades at Lowe's on sale for $19.95. We'll also be incorporating some mercury glass pieces that we found at Hobby Lobby this week, at 50% off.
So, for the cost of a couple of lamp shades, we have our own "antique mercury glass" lamps.
Lots more crafting and upcycling to do this week!
