Mercury Glass

My new favorite look is that of mercury glass.I have been searching for mercury glass light bulb covers for my bathroom for a while now.I had the idea that mercury glass would look perfect in the bathroom .We will be redoing the whole bathroom soon and I have been searching for my vision to take effect.Well,yesterday I had the idea that I could make my own mercury glass light covers!!!!!!  I bought glass covers for the light fixture at Lowes. They were $4.95 a piece. Then I bought a can of Valspar spray paint in silver metal. I have to say the Valspar spray paint didn't smell too bad!!!!! I first sprayed the glass covers with water and then quickly sprayed the silver. I also took a cotton ball to lightly dab at the drip marks. Here are the before and after photos. I really love it!!!! It looks really authentic in person better than the photos!!!!!

That is the best idea! We have fixtures like that and it would glam up the bathroom.
