Spray Your Way to a Mercury Glass Lamp

While on a recent trip, Debbie from One Day at a Time ventured out on a little shopping adventure while her husband was napping and just so happened to land a set of glass lamps for only $5.99 a piece on closeout. Talk about a steal! Sure, the clear glass was pretty, but Debbie had a different look in mind for the lamps and broke out the Looking Glass paint. The open bottoms made them the perfect candidates for Debbie’s faux mercury glass technique, as evidenced by the beautiful results!

Debbie was inspired by Pottery Barn’s Mercury Glass Lamps.

I have seen this one that Debbie found on closeout at Target actually. I'm not sure if they still have it, but it might be worth checking out.
