Frosted Glass

Posted on: October 8, 2010

I’ve found a new love…frosted glass spray paint.  I’ve been dying to try it for a while and I finally picked some up at Rona a while ago…$9!

I have big plans for this little can of spray paint, but the first thing I tackled were some glass cylinders for my Thanksgiving table decor.  I have quite a few of these cylinders for another project that is in the works but won’t be done for a while yet so I gave some of them a temporary purpose.

I spray-painted these babies with the frosted glass paint…and I love that you don’t have to wait until your first coat is completely dry.  Just the opposite rather; the label encourages doing 2 or more ‘wet’ coats for the best appearance…I did 3.  And it dries completely after 10 minutes!  Perfect for a spur of the moment project such as this was.

One piece of advice:  DO NOT ignore the advice about using in a well-ventilated area.  I used it on our front porch, with a slight breeze and the fumes were still almost overwhelming.  My hubby came out of the house (and the windows were not open) to find out what smelled so bad.  Anyways, the cylinders looks fabulous!

These look great, Stace. So much better than the plain cylinders that we hunted for at all the thrift stores that day, haha.

yes indeedy! and it only took like, ten minutes to spray them with all three coats!

[…] sprayed the cylinders on our front porch…as I’ve mentioned before here, it’s VERY important to follow the instructions and use the frosted glass spray outside.  […]
