Speaking of which I was asked by Krylon to prepare a DIY piece for their booth at IDS17. Anytime I am asked to create something for a certain purpose I am thrilled and inspired. Seriously, I think I live for these challenges. I've had my eye on this Krylon Looking Glass spray paint for some time. It's a spray paint that turns any glass surface into a mirror. I didn't believe it myself until I tried and I was amazed. So here are the details of my DIY Anthropologie inspired Mirror.
I bought these shirts off the clearance rack at Forever 21 awhile ago (I bought them because they were similar to Ellie Casham's dark floral wallpaper - gorgeous!). I'm always looking for unique places for DIY inspiration.
I took the glass out of the frame and lightly sprayed it with the looking glass spray (all over but some areas heavier than others).
Then I cut a piece of fabric to fit the frame.
And assembled. So easy!
That's it! You could do this technique with any fabric or even a photo.
To add another layer of depth you could try spraying the glass with a water-vinegar solution before the looking glass spray paint. It will add little drops similar to mercury glass (I tried this but in the end I preferred the plain spray.
See below for how reflective these turned-out - can you see me lol?
Be sure to stop by the Krylon booth at #IDS17 for a closer look at this DIY.
