Mercury Glass on a Dollar Store Budget

MaryJo from Masterpieces of My Life says she had been coveting Ballard Designs’ beautiful mercury glass pedestal bowls for some time but didn’t want to open up her wallet for them. She happened upon some textured bowls at the dollar store and couldn’t help but notice that they would be perfect for turning into her own Ballard inspired décor. MaryJo attached candlesticks to the bottoms  to create pedestals and then used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint and a mixture of vinegar and water to achieve the look of mercury glass. MaryJo made a variety of faux mercury glass pieces for less than one of the bowls from Ballard!
