Hi Ho Silver!

This platter was very colorful and I was about to give it to Goodwill when I remembered that we can transform things with paint. So I sprayed it with silver Krylon Metallic paint and am now eager to decorate with it this upcoming holiday season. Sorry, I forgot to get a before picture because I got caught up in the moment...it was really unattractive to me before, just take my word for it.



Then I used the Looking Glass paint to make more mercury glass pieces. I stole was given the two tall pieces after attending a friend's wedding.


They will fit in nicely with these I sprayed awhile ago.

This post can be found here.

And finally, I  painted some red ornaments with with Looking Glass paint. I like them better now!


So before you pitch those old holiday items, know that you can bring new life to them with some paint.

    I love how you are "re-creating" your Christmas ornaments and decorations, especially the ornaments you painted with the looking glass paint! I've recently discovered your blog and love all of your great, creative ideas!
