I have a bunch of old windows from my prior house when we replaced all the windows. I saved them because I didn’t know where to get rid of them. After that, I started doing more upcycling and am really fortunate to have them! Prior to this new craze that has been generated by sites like Pinterest, you couldn’t even give old furniture & remodeling supplies away. Now that are a lot more expensive.
So, I was scraping the old paint off this window and was going to paint it again, but decided to try some liquid “lead” for windows that my momma gave me. I cut out a square and just drew around it with a marker on the window to make the entire pattern and then did the liquid lead on the other side.
Then I sprayed the back (other) side with Krylon. The directions said to spray 5 light coats. I did that, but needed to add more coats to make it thick enough to look like a “real” mirror.
I considered going for an antique look–but decided not to. Well, the glass must have been old enough or something, because it sure looks like an old mirror.
I may, or may not, paint it shabby chic.
