Anyways, we found this window during the same trip we found this beauty. I wasn't sure where it would go but I thought the panes were really interesting and for $5 what the heck.
It sat on the front porch for awhile before I finally made it to Lowe's to look for mirror to back it with. But, I'm not about to pay $45 for a mirror, so it sat some more on the front porch. Then, I found this magical paint:
Looking Glass Mirror-Like Paint by Krylon. It looks like mirror when you spray it onto the back of glass for a fraction of the cost! It is pricey compared to regular spray paint ($11 for a 6 oz can) but I found mine at Michael's and used a coupon. One can was just enough for this window. Simply clean the glass, and spray light even coats (about 5 or 6), I didn't even tape it off. It dries super fast so this puppy was done in about 30 minutes. We decided to hang it in the dining room since there wasn't a single thing on the walls but it's looking a bit lonely.
I thought maybe a plate wall around it but hubby says that reminds him of his MeMaw. So like anyone, I've been looking for plates with man stuff like fish on them :) I found a really cute manly one at Goodwill for less than a buck but being ever so graceful, that thing was shattered less than a day later. Any ideas? My tabletop is looking a bit sad too, just some dishes and flowers...any ideas for that too?
