I had to order this paint from an art supply company, and with S&H three cans came to around $39.00 or so. I worked on this project in the basement ( winter) , but would strongly advise using this paint outdoors due to the toxic paint fumes. ( I did have windows open and exhaust fan going.)
I spattered some watered down black paint on the back side of the glass, let it dry, spritzed the glass with water, and gave the whole works about 6 or 7 coats of mirror spray paint.
This was my inspiration piece form the Pottery Barn Bible for around $500.
And this is my finished project.
window $20 + paint $40 = $60
Not bad, if I do say so myself! It is a magical mirror for anybody over 50 as wrinkles, sunspots, and wily gray hairs can't be detected. As a bonus, the window sale included the screen I pictured above. It will be rehabbed into a wall mounted utensil/pot rack for Julie's kitchen. Watch for upcoming post.
Keep your eyes and ears open 'cause you never know where, when, or how that next treasure will find you. :@
