Looking Glass Paint Project

I love the Krylon Looking Glass spray paint. I found it in a store several months ago, and I have been trying it out on a few items in my house.

The best things about this spray paint is that it is easy to use, it gives clear glass a reflective finish, and it dries very quickly. You can make your own mirror in about 10 minutes.

I used the spray paint on a cheap picture frame and candle holders. I also used Krylon Brushed Metallic paint on the outer part of the picture frame.

Chair Makeover

My husband owned this old chair for several years before we got married:

I didn’t want to throw it out because it is such a sturdy wood chair. So, I decided to give the chair a quick makeover.

 

I cleaned the chair and spray painted it outside with Rust-Oleum metallic paint.

Once the chair was dry, I bought a $5 seat cushion to finish the makeover.

My husband and I love the way this chair turned out. It is more comfortable to sit on and much more appealing to look at in our room.

Fun Craft Ideas

I was deleting some photos from my camera when I realized that I still had craft projects that I’ve never posted on this blog. I had a great time doing these projects, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share the photos with you all. Maybe someone can be inspired and do an even better version of these projects.

Wood Heart Magnets

I came up with this idea after buying a bag of wooden hearts from Michaels for just $2.49. I also bought a pack of magnets from Walmart that cost under $2.

I used the following supplies to decorate the hearts: podgeable paper, glitter, pearl beads, Mod Podge, chalkboard paint, etc. I gave each heart its own look. You can decorate the hearts any way you like and use them as party favors, gifts, or toys for a child.

Wood Frame + Wood Letter

I went to Michaels earlier this week because they were having an awesome sale throughout the store, plus, I received a 20% off coupon (that’s the only way I can afford to shop at some of these craft stores). I found lots of items on clearance, including this wood frame and letter:

I decided to turn the frame and letter into wall art using paint, scrapbook paper, and cotton fabric.

I started off by painting the frame with sage green acrylic paint.

As the paint was drying on the frame, I started working on the wood letter. I traced the letter on a sheet of scrapbook paper, then I glued the paper on the letter using Mod Podge.

To finish off the project, I made a bow out of the cotton fabric.
