Fall and Heavy Metal

I have been pulling out my heavy metal 
decorative stuff

 because Fall is going to be here before we know it.

Darker colors and metal objects just seem to cozy things a bit more when the weather has a chill in it.

The first container is a pickle jar,
 the second- a syrup bottle was sprayed with silver paint, 
the third-a salsa jar....faux mercury glass.

I realize that with this post I am exposing a secret! 

I know that every person in blog land has already experimented with this
 and posted MANY pictures and experiences.
it is what it is.....
I admit it! 
I had never tried making my own mercury glass with
  Krylon's Looking Glass paint and vinegar!

With Fall just around the corner I figured it was time!
 After all, I bought the stuff from Wally World a looong time ago.
 I had better use it before it was too cold outside to spray paint. 

I think they came out pretty good!

Our little cuties picture is in a Dollar General frame.

I did it and I am glad I did!


Marty asked how I did it....
 1. First wash your jars...use Goo Gone if the labels are persnickety.
      2. Spray vinegar on the inside of your jar or bottle and whilst it is still wet
     3. Spray the Looking Glass paint  over the vinegar....use a napkin to distress, if you like

Hope you have a blessed and awesome week!
