I adore old, shiny things — costume jewelry, old silver tea services, end caps at stores this time of year with a plethora of faux mercury glass. Cue Freddy Mercury singing, “I Want It All.” But, being the hoarder that I am, this year I’m trying to repurpose more than I buy, which is how this little project came about.
I was just looking for a metallic look so I used silver spray paint because that’s what my craft store had in stock. However, if you’re going for more of a mercury glass look, use looking-glass spray instead. It has more of a mirror quality. You can see these jars lighting up the mantel I designed for the Blogger Challenge with Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and HGTV Holiday House.
