I have always had a love for mirrored furniture, and a hatred for my cheap-o dresser. I knew it was time to do something different to the piece that I look at everyday. Thanks to Pinterest I found a How TO mercury glass, and from there my wheels started turning and next thing you know I was on a roll.
Like I said I really hated my dresser, so much that I have never taken a picture of it and I forgot to take a before for this project. I did find it in the background of one picture and did a little zoom and crop to give you an idea of the before.
I wanted the mirror to be antiqued. These are some of my inspiration pictures.
I did do a couple tests on picture frame glass. I decided I wanted to add some gray paint in with the black paint for the antique look.
Here are my tools:
Krylon Looking Glass paint
Gray paint diluted with water in spray bottle
Black paint diluted with water in spray bottle
cut clear glass
First I sprayed the black and gray paints to give the look I wanted and then while wet sprayed the top with the Krylon Looking Glass spray paint.
Next I used Liquid Nails to glue the pieces onto the drawer fronts.
