After much back-and-forth with myself... I settled on sharing these Painted Mirrored-Vases, because they show just how inexpensively you can transform ordinary objects using only spray paint!
Here’s what you need:
Cheap little glass vases
Looking Glass spray paint
High gloss spray paint
Here’s what you do:
Put your vase upside down on the drop cloth.
Spray several VERY light layers of Looking Glass onto the vase [make sure each layer dries in between, don’t worry, it dries fast] until you cannot see through it anymore.
Let it dry completely.
Now, do the same thing again, spraying right over the Looking Glass paint with your colored high gloss paint [I used white, but any color would look great!].
Due to the shape of my vases, once the bottoms were dry I turned them over, put my spray paint lid in the vase opening [so as to not get any paint inside the vase] and sprayed the top edges that I couldn’t reach while it was upside-down.
And that’s it! You have adorable little mirrored vases! Since all of the paint was applied to the outside, you can even still put water in them and use them for flowers. I just think that spray paint is wonderful... whether I'm tackling a big project or just doing a cute little decorative project... and that's why I'm addicted [and you should be too]!
Thank you Connie for sharing! I seriously didn't know they made Looking Glass spray paint!! Looks like you could have bought them for $30 a piece!! I so need to get me some of that!

And now let us all repeat the Spray Painters Mantra:
Friends, help me source all the items I am searching for but can not find.
Give me the vision to think outside of the box and remember the can of spray paint,
and bless me with the patience to let each of the coats dry before I move on to the next step!
Cookies and coffee are in the back! =)
