Dollar Store Glass Hack – Fake a high end look with this $6 trick! | Hometalk



with two simple treatments ordinary glassware can be transformed into a vintage favorite grab some white puffy fabric paint begin painting on rows of dots you can be as precise or sporadic as you want to be while painting the dots depending on your desired result for a more precise method I added dots in a staggered line diamond pattern for a more sporadic application I added the dots and a polka dotted pattern the good thing about this beat is if you make a mistake it wipes right off with a paper towel after the dots are painted on let them dry the bottle set to let it dry for four hours but I let mine sit for 24 hours just to be sure I wanted to try multiple finishing methods so I wanted to make sure my dots didn't smear for the traditional hobnail look add a layer of white glossy spray paint you can also add a glossy finishing spray for an even glass here look you can be planters candleholders frames the possibilities are endless for this method you can purchase pearl stickers at Michael's you can also purchase these at the dollar store begin pulling apart the stickers they can stick together so it's easier to pull them apart before you begin placement next begin adding the Hotmail pipe I went for a more staggering line placement creating a diamond shaped pattern but you could be as precise as the good thing about these stickers is you can move them around if you decide you want to place them in a different spot but they do stick to the glass very well especially after adding the finish for the traditional hobnail look add a layer of white glossy spray paint you can also add a glossy finishing spray for an even glassier look add some real or faux leaves to create a one-of-a-kind base mix half water and a half vinegar in a spray bottle and grab some krylon looking-glass spray paint spray on the spray paint and spray on the mixture plotting with a paper towel repeat as many times as desired to get the look you want I found that I liked the look of the world stickers with the mercury glass because the white dot showed through a little less add a Nancy touch to your kitchen table or your bathroom Michelle with the folk spray on the spray paint color of your choosing and then add the glossy finishing spray on a print or clear fee to a hobnail frame add a pop of blue to your living room with some candle sticks or add a pop of green to your bathroom shelf mix unicorn spit with water and begin application I dab the mixture with a small sponge to add a more textured look then I finish it off by spraying the glossy finishing spray on top add some LED taillights and you have a whimsical answer to brighten up any room don't like the look of dots add a pattern finish it off some spray paint and some glossy finishing spray I hope this inspires you to try painting technique on your old glassware today you

    So tired of mean people in this world. If you don’t like her ideas come up with your own!! Morons. I think what she’s doing is inventive. Creative. She’s nice enough to take time out of her life and day to share ideas and make videos.
