Christmas decorating is upon us and one of the hottest trends this season is mercury glass. As an ardent DIY’er I sought out tutorials online and found several on how to create the look for less. Yay!!! The trick is to buy a special mirror like paint called Looking Glass by the Krylon paint company. Sounds easy enough…so off I went to Rona, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Michaels, Walmart and Home Hardware…enough….I couldn’t find it anywhere…and later learned that it is not sold in Canada. Sad that I couldn’t make cool stuff like this….
…I went home and searched online and found that through amazon.com you can buy a can for $18 USD plus shipping of almost $30 for one can!!! OK. I’m headed back to the stores tomorrow to simply buy the candle holders I liked and as long as it’s under $50 bucks..I’m still ahead. Happy Shopping Peeps!!
